Leaders from Northwest State Community College, Toledo Public Schools and the University of Toledo, local industry and unions, and social service representatives recently convened to discuss the region’s training, employment and other economic needs during the Make It In America Listening Tour.
Skilled trades careers are in high demand. Northwest Ohio employers are typically eager to find qualified employees to fill available positions in plant maintenance and other skilled fields. The students who recently earned certification in Mechatronics can attest to this. These students, who took part in a Dec. 18, 2017 certification ceremony at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center at the University of Toledo Scott Park, have had great success transitioning into the workforce. Of the ten students who earned certification in the course, nine already have secured employment.
