Respecting Your Past and Building Your Future
Veterans and those who have military training are a valued part of the Ohio Building Trades workforce. The work ethic, leadership, teamwork, and communications skills you learned in the military are highly sought-after and rewarded in the Building Trades.
Your technical skills are also sought after. Many crafts offer direct entry to any veteran honorably discharged, despite MOS. On the job training (OJT) and related instruction (RI) credit hours are often awarded, too.
