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. In addition to training individuals, Air Washington will be helping businesses attain AS9100 certification, the quality standard for manufacturing in the aerospace industry.
“These job training programs are skilling Washingtonians to meet the needs of our state’s hundreds of aerospace businesses. I was proud to back this investment, which will help close the aviation skills gap and put Washingtonians back to work. This critical investment will help keep Washington state at the forefront of the 21st century commercial aviation industry.” — http://www.cantwell.senate.gov/news/record.cfm?id=334486,
