Since 1992, the experts at Functional Training Services have been assisting individuals with identified disabilities to establish or re-establish careers based on proven abilities and interests.

We are a private, person-centered vocational rehabilitation agency which partners with the State of Ohio, specifically, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD), to assist individuals with career exploration, vocational training, job readiness training, and career development - including outcomes based, job search activities. FTS’ goal is to assist job seekers with employment solutions, whether entry level, middle management or senior leadership, that contribute to personal fulfillment and overall self-sufficiency.

FTS is trusted by companies to refer qualified job candidates. There is no cost to the employer for referral and/or placement services.
