Get trained and join the next generation of aerospace workers today!
The Air Washington project is a consortium of eleven of the state's community and technical colleges which have received a $20M Department of Labor grant to strengthen our aerospace industry through workforce training. By fall of 2014, Air Washington campuses will train more than 2,600 workers in advanced manufacturing/composites, electronics/avionics, aircraft assembly, and aircraft maintenance.
“Washington state has the best aerospace workers in the world, and this investment is going to give local organizations the resources they need to help make sure we stay at the front of the pack. We have companies in Washington state that want to hire, and we have workers that want to work – and we need to keep fighting to close the skills gap that too often keeps jobs from being filled.” — http://www.cantwell.senate.gov/news/record.cfm?id=334486,
