A career in a commercial construction trade begins with an apprenticeship. An apprentice will learn both in the classroom and on the job site. They receive wages and benefits and -- in many cases -- credit hours towards an Associate's Degree. Those who complete an apprenticeship become Journeyman. The Northwest Ohio Construction Education Center is a great resource for career and apprenticeship opportunities as well as Toledo Construction.com. Average starting wage package is $35 per hour including amazing benefits! Click here!
If you have been to a Toledo Walleye game or a concert, you've been to the Huntington Center. The Huntington Center kick-started the revitalization of downtown Toledo. There is nothing like being a part of building a piece of history! You could build the 419 too!
