Construction and Renovation Tradesman Program Offered at LCCC Learning Center in Lorain

Lorain County Community College now offers a Construction and Renovation Tradesman program that allows participants to earn college credits toward an Associate of Technical Studies Degree. 

Classes provide hands-on training in the areas of Blueprint Reading, Plumbing, OSHA, Masonry, HVAC, Finish Carpentry, Rough Carpentry, and Wiring. 

This coursework is designed so that a student may either take individual classes or apply the courses to an Associate of Technical Studies degree. It prepares successful students for future jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Market Information of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, over the 2000-2010 period, the Cleveland-Lorain-Elyria economy is projected to create 9,180 new construction trade positions.

“These courses are designed to support the economic growth of the community and provide students with skills that lead to immediate employment and to an associate’s degree,” said Kelly Zelesnik, dean of LCCC’s Engineering Technologies division.    

Classes are offered every semester at the LCCC Learning Center in Lorain, within the St. Joseph Community Center, located on W. 21st Street and Broadway. “We’re working to collaborate with Lorain’s Community Development department for our students to utilize the skills being taught in the classroom for real life applications while serving the community,” said Eric Gilles, program coordinator and instructor. 

If you already possess a high school diploma or GED, the requirements for registering are simple: submit a completed LCCC admission form and submit official transcripts from previous schools attended to the LCCC Records Office, then register for courses of choice. Financial Aid is available for eligible students and tetanus immunization is recommended.
