High School Diploma to Hand Tool Boot Camp Training

Oct 13, 2017 | Dohn Programs

Dohn Community High School’s 22+ Program accelerates education to employment opportunities through a 10-hour Boot Camp training on hand tool safety and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)Certification.

Skilled labor is the new, hot job market and employers welcome new hires that show initiative by having an OSHA certification and Hand Tool training documentation already on their resumes.

The Boot Camp is provided through collaborative relationship with Techtricians, an organization that donates the tools on which the students train, the instructor and the cost of OSHA certification, all at an estimated value of $79.00 per student. Techtricians donated a computer system to Dohn School for this project.

This 10-hour training is standard for entry-level access into the construction industry. Students at Dohn receive the training from Tom Collins, a recognized expert in the field. Collins is a retired Professor with 28 years of service, a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) for 40 years, and a member of The Fiber Optic Association (FOA) Board of Director’s for 15 years.

The training includes four hours’ experiential instruction working with basic hand tools, two hours of ladder training and two hours of Electrical safety training including soldering and use of a meter. The two-hour OSHA curriculum covers workplace safety.

This training offers access to earning a viable living wage doing work that is creative and fulfilling. Successful graduates are encouraged to apply for entry-level positions at Home Depot or Lowe’s as well as in construction.

If these benefits appeal to you, and you are in need of a high school diploma, Dohn’s 22+ Adult Diploma Program invites you to apply.  Hours for your high school diploma education are flexible and include day and evening instruction at multiple locations throughout Cincinnati.
