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 needs more than 21,000 new aerospace workers over the next decade to fill new jobs and meet employer demands. And America needs thousands more skilled workers to seize aerospace job opportunities on the horizon. We need to make the right decisions today to create aerospace jobs now – and for our children.” — http://www.cantwell.senate.gov/news/record.cfm?id=334585,
