Maple Heights High Construction Tech Class Carpentry Apprenticeship Training Center

 

Maple Heights juniors and seniors who participate in the Construction Tech class at Maple Heights High School participated in a field trip to the Carpentry and Apprenticeship Training center in Richfield, Ohio. 

The Construction Tech class is a part of the career prep consortium which offers courses through a five-district consortium, which includes Maple Heights, Bedford, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, and Warrensville Heights High Schools. The mission of the consortium is to prepare students for the ever-changing workforce by helping students develop the knowledge and skills for employment and post-secondary education. 

Students toured the Carpentry and Apprenticeship Training center (a union trade school). The students had a chance to engage in virtual welding and look at specific programs (floor layment, millwright, pile driver, and finish carpentry) the trade school offers their students. 

The Construction Tech class signed an articulation agreement with the carpenter's union  (this trade school) that will cover their 4 years of schooling and pay for students’ on-the-job training. 

All the classes at this school are worth TRI-C college credit. Their current starting rate is $19.95/hour with automatic 6 month raises. After 4 years, their hourly rate will be $34.00 an hour with another $18 in hourly benefits. During their time at the high school, they also earned 12 points toward their high school graduation in Industry Based credentials.
