The mission of Skilled Trades is to develop and implement partnership programs with area employers that include the use of college coursework as a part of their employee career preparation programs. The department collaborates with local industry partners to custom build certificate and/or degree programs that will best meet their educational and training needs. These programs can include employer-specific courses as well as integration of their employees into mainstream college coursework.

The goal of this initiative is to meet all of the educational and training needs of employers at all levels within their organization. These partnerships actively involve local employers in the educational process, including recruiting, selection, curriculum development, related work experience, and final placement.

Upon completion of the Associate Degree in Skilled Trades, the graduate will be able to:

  • Understand the role and function of the skilled trades in the construction industry
  • Discriminate the work they perform and how it interrelates with the other trades in the overall scope of a construction project
  • Apply underlying theories and principles that are foundational to the trade that they have chosen
  • Demonstrate skills and proper work practices in all building, renovation, or repair activities
  • Be qualified and prepared to become a lead worker and/or mentor to others on construction and maintenance job sites
  • Read, interpret, and follow construction drawings
  • Apply current industry-specific building codes in the planning and execution of work
  • Demonstrate the use of proper safety procedures in all activities.

For more information about the Skilled Trades programs, contact Scott Laslo, On-Campus Programs Coordinator, 614-287-2653, slaslo1@cscc.edu; or contact J.D. White, Apprenticeship Programs Coordinator, 614-287-5211, jwhite02@cscc.edu.

Apprenticeship Partnership Degree Programs

These Skilled Trades degree programs are part of partnerships between area trades apprenticeship programs and the college. Participation in these programs is limited to students who are currently enrolled in the full-time apprenticeship programs offered by the college’s industry partner trades organizations.

Students in the Skilled Trades degree programs combine apprentice-ship courses, advanced technical coursework, and basic and general education courses to earn an Associate of Applied Science in Skilled Trades. Electrician, carpentry, millwright, sheet metal and operating engineer majors are currently available.

For more information, students can refer to the website www.cscc. edu/skilledtrades and/or contact Skilled Trades Program Coordinator J.D. White, 614-287-5211, jwhite02@cscc.edu.

Associate of Technical Studies Degree in Construction Trades

In partnership with several central Ohio trades apprenticeship pro-grams, the college offers apprentices the opportunity to earn college credit in their apprenticeship programs. Students are awarded college credit for technical courses taken during each year of the apprenticeship, leading to a certificate in the program upon successful completion of their apprenticeship. Students who wish to continue their education can apply the credits they have earned toward an Associate of Technical Studies in Construction Trades with a technical minor in their trade and a major in construction management. All Skilled Trades partnership programs have restricted enrollment, requiring that participants are accepted into their respective trade apprenticeship programs prior to enrollment in one of these Associate of Technical Studies Degree programs.

Facilities Maintenance Associate Degree

The Skilled Trades Associate Degree Program in Facilities Maintenance prepares individuals for careers in technical jobs supporting the maintenance, upkeep, and light repair of residential, commercial, and multi-family properties. Facilities maintenance requires that employees have a broad range of knowledge and skills across multiple trades. The technical coursework in this program provides education and training in five technical skill areas: welding, carpentry, electricity, plumbing, and heating/air conditioning. In addition, to the technical theoretical knowledge coursework, students will study nontechnical coursework needed to provide the necessary support of this technical degree.

Area facilities managers have been consulted and involved in the development of this program. Its goal is to prepare entry-level workers and to provide opportunities for developmental training of current employees within this growing industry.

Upon completion of the program, students earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Skilled Trades–Facilities Maintenance Major. The program is designed to:

  • Provide students with basic skills and knowledge in the core trades of carpentry, electricity, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and welding
  • Provide students with the foundational academic skills to support their success in trades-related employment
  • Prepare students for entry-level positions in facilities maintenance.

With their knowledge in this wide-range of technical trades, graduates will be prepared to enter the workforce as facilities maintenance technicians. Those who are interested in specializing in a specific trade may use this education as a foundation to help them qualify for entry into any of a variety of skilled trades registered apprentice-ship programs.

Apprenticeship Readiness Certificate Programs

These short-term certificate programs help prepare students interested in entering trades apprenticeships to be more knowledgeable about their career choice and to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in the trade that will make them better pre-pared to be considered for entry into apprenticeship programs.

These certificates include both technical and soft skills apprenticeships are seeking from applicants. After successful completion of one of these certificates, candidates will be directed to the trade related apprenticeship program for application to that program. These external industry partners are solely responsible for final selection of candidates accepted into their programs.

For more information, about starting one of these two semester programs of study, contact Skilled Trades Program Coordinator J.D. White, 614-287-5211, jwhite02@cscc.edu.
