Next year, Toledo will be a hotbed of action centered largely on major construction projects.  To get a clearer idea of what it takes to become tradesmen and tradeswomen to work on these and other projects, a number of local government officials toured the Piping Industry Training Center last week.

Members of the Department of Ohio Jobs and Family Services of Wood County, the Wood County Economic Development Department and Wood County Commissioners and their staff toured the PITC. The officials spoke with representatives from the Piping Industry and learned what it takes to make a skilled professional. 

Agency members were impressed with the extensive education plumbers, pipefitters, HVAC service technicians, and welders receive and the amount of hours put into their trades. They learned the education tradesmen and tradeswomen receive is second to none.

In addition to finding out about the many specialized areas worked on by members of the Piping Industry, agency officials learned about the particular emphasis the PITC places on safe work practices.  PITC leadership explained their mission to provide quality training in all practical and technical aspects of the trade, and prepare apprentices to succeed in meeting the needs of the industry and employers.
