Port Clinton High School has partnered with the Ottawa County Business Advisory Council, the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation and local businesses to offer a comprehensive Skilled Trade Internship Program. The new program will be available for seniors starting with the 2019-2020 school year.
The program will provide the opportunity to participate in highly engaging skilled trade internships with Ottawa County employers while earning high school credit. The internship in skilled trades provides student exposure to a variety of career pathways and the chance to build relationships with local employers.
Upon completion of the internship, students will have the opportunity to receive certification as a Certified Production Technician, gaining skills in four critical production functions: Safety; Manufacturing Processes & Production; Quality Practices & Measurement; and Maintenance Awareness.
“Our organization is excited to be working together with local employers and Ottawa County schools on this initiative. Together we are trying to fill the employment needs and skills gaps that exist locally, with the ultimate goal of retaining as many of our students here in our community and growing our workforce for many years to come,” said Jamie Beier Grant, Director of the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation. “I am thankful for these partnerships and feel these efforts are an integral part of a long-term strategy for our community.”
