A great source of pride for SPSI is our one-of-a-kind Apprenticeship Program and Accelerated Advanced Welder Training Programs.

Founded in 2007, the SPSI Apprentice Program is a nationally NCCER-accredited (National Center of Construction Education and Research) and Ohio State Apprenticeship Program recognized welding and pipe fitting program dedicated to teaching a lifetime craft to motivated individuals.  The curriculum is built for the industry by the industry and was founded out of a distinct need for highly skilled craftsman to work for SPSI to meet its growing demand for qualified tradesman. 

  • 30+ welding booths in modern facilities; three designated as handicapped
  • State-of-the-art ventilation system for a clean, safe environment
  • Certified, trained SPSI instructors
  • Classroom training, as well as hands-on training
  • Veteran approved training available

The Program serves as a prime example of three key drivers of desirable growth in the current and future Northeastern Ohio economy:

  1. A globally recognized growing manufacturing concern in a very solid long term growth industry located in the heart of Northeastern Ohio.
  2. The need for highly skilled craftsman to be employed locally and meet the growing market demand of SPSI.
  3. An educational feeder program supplying those craftsmen that will be trained locally and will be employed locally.
