In March, 2015, Oregon Tradeswomen was named a Neighborhood Builder by Bank of America, who generously invested $200,000 over two years to support our work to launch a new arm of our Pathways Program: Women in Metals & Manufacturing.
OTI is offering this new career preparation program for women in response to the needs of our local manufacturing industry who want to develop a pipeline of skilled workers. It’s a perfect fit, as OTI is invested in ensuring women have access to these careers, with living wages, and generous benefits such as health care, paid vacation time, and retirement.
OTI’s Women in Metals & Manufacturing Intensive Training will offer an introduction to these exciting, well-paying careers such as welder, machinist, millwright, production worker, computer-controlled machine operator as well as in the construction trades such as steamfitter, sheet metal worker, ironworker, and plumber.

If you are interested in exploring a wide variety of trades careers, we recommend that you also sign up to attend an Information Session about OTI’s Trades and Apprenticeship Career Class – a 7-week state-certified pre-apprenticeship class. All of OTI’s programs for women include assistance from career counselors in making career decisions, help applying for jobs, apprenticeship, or enrolling for community college classes.
