Training Recruitment Acceleration Innovation Network of Ohio
Our region is thriving with opportunity. Yet area employers face a shared challenge: a critical labor shortage. Through the TRAIN OH Earn and Learn program, local companies and LCCC are coming together to develop solutions. TRAIN OH is the path to early, hands-on experience and on-the-job training in high-demand and high-skill industries.
LCCC’s TRAIN OH program offers an Earn & Learn approach to earning a certificate or degree, combining a hands-on college degree in several different in-demand career fields, with paid work based learning with Northeast Ohio companies.
TRAIN OH allows students to attend school full-time, two days a week and work at a sponsoring company three days a week.

LCCC has engaged with local employers to offer paid work based learning through this program. TRAIN OH is an employment program that provides full-time or part-time entry-level jobs, or internships with businesses that are actively seeking to attract and retain employees.
