The AGC of NW Ohio provides resources that can help you decide if a career in commercial construction is right for you. From classroom visits to one-on-one meetings, call Pam Mohler at 419-241-3601 to schedule your session.
A career in a commercial construction trade begins with an apprenticeship. An apprentice will learn both in the classroom and on the jobsite. They receive wages and benefits and -- in many cases -- credit hours towards an Associate's Degree. Those who complete an apprenticeship become a Journeyman.
The Draft Day program is designed to help students plan for a career in commercial construction before graduation so they can take advantage of opportunities as soon as they have a diploma! This program offers soft skill training, mentorships and job-shadow opportunities.
Seniors in the program spend the school year getting ready for the job market. On Draft Day, they are introduced to contractors and union business agents who are hiring!
Currently, 23 program alumni from the Class of 2018 are apprentices working in the field with an additional five pursuing degrees in engineering, project management and safety.
To date, 29 members of the Class of 2019 are working in the field as apprentices and pre-apprentices. Others are still going through the testing and application process. There are also four students who will be attending college in the Fall pursuing construction-related degrees. Additionally, two alumni are now active duty military!
