Training & education at no additional cost

As a Laborer Apprentice, you will learn skills by attending a minimum of 144 hours of classroom training per year. You will practice and develop what you learn in the classroom with a skilled journey worker(s) for 4,000 hours of on-the-job training.
Action & adventure

Laborers build and repair roads, highways, bridges, and tunnels; construct buildings; install gas lines; clean up hazardous waste sites; and much more. Among specfic tasks Laborers do are- drilling and blasting, erecting scaffolding, mason tending, pipe laying, grade checking, cutting steel, operating power equipment, traffic control and installing intellegent transportation systems. From small one day jobs to massive multi-year construction projects, Ohio Laborers do it all.
