No Bachelor No Problem


Career-focused educational and training opportunities abound in the Toledo


area. A sampling of schools and programs includes:

Toledo Academy of Beauty
Toledo Academy of Beauty has been training students for careers in the salon and spa industry for more than 50 years.
Nationally accredited, the academy offers programs in cosmetology, nail technology and esthetician (skin care). Programs train students to meet and surpass state requirements. The school trains using product and technique variety (not controlled by any one product).
Example: Combined Cosmetology & Manager Program:
• Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED certificate.
• Tuition of $14,000 includes fees, tuition, books and equipment.
• 1,800 hours coursework required – 14 months for full-time students, 16 months for part-time students and 25 months for evening students.
• Information available about payment plans, grants, scholarships and student and private loans.
• Lifetime placement services offered


Joining the military may sound like a scary proposition to many high school


students, but the benefits can last a lifetime.

Guaranteed retirement pension for a military career, health care benefits, training that can guarantee a job after discharge, and the opportunity to travel around the world at the federal government’s expense are just a few of the advantages of a military career.

Plus, a college degree can oftentimes come alongside a military career — earned while in the military or after discharge. And, it can be at the government’s expense, too.
“Now, if you’re a supervisor and you’re thinking about hiring two different people, who are you going to hire? Are you going to hire the person who was in the Navy, Air Force, or whatever who has a degree and they have the job experience and they’ve been working on this stuff for four years, or are you going to hire the person who just has the college degree?” said Navy officer and recruiter Andrew Weber. 


South Toledo resident Norm Hamilton says he arrived in Germany for his first U.S. Army tour of duty the day after they built the Berlin Wall.
That was 1959, Hamilton said, and adds that he was discharged from active duty in October, 1962, while the Cuban Missile Crisis was going on.

That didn’t keep Hamilton from returning to the Army Reserves 11 years later and making a career out of his service.

“I went in just for the heck of it,” Hamilton said. “It was ’73, and they had trouble getting people in because it was right at the end of Vietnam.”
