With more than $3 million in federal Workforce Investment Act funds slated for aerospace training programs in Washington state, now is the perfect time to explore the aerospace industry.
On Wednesday, May 25, Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC) will bring its Advanced Inspection and Manufacturing Mobile Training Unit (AIM-MTU) to Bates Technical College’s Downtown Campus, where it will be open to the public for tours from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The AIM-MTU is a 53-foot classroom on wheels equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and software that teaches the manufacturing process, including product design, programming, testing, setup, machining, inspection and reporting. The mobile training unit travels across the state to employers and community and technical colleges to provide on-site, hands-on apprenticeship and short term training.
