GOOD NEWS

The Central States Threshermen's Steam School has been approved by the state of Ohio for meeting the steam school requirement for obtaining an Ohio Historical Operator license

I think it is a testament to those who have help to develop the program and instruct at the school over the years. Big thanks to Tom Runty, Bob Stadsholt, Chris Erickson, Mark Corrigan and Terry Moore. A special recognition to Dave Schott who started the school 17 years ago as well as Mark and Jack Corson for being great promoters of many steam schools and the hobby in general

We also appreciate the State of Ohio for recognizing the quality of instruction we provide to students

We still have opening and now APPROVED FOR OHIO
