Mabel Edmonds, Dean of Workforce Development at Clover Park Technical College is part of the delegation participating in the Washington State Governor’s 2011 Business Mission to Europe – France and Germany, June 20-24.
Edmonds’ community and technical college colleagues, and The Air Washington group, will join those representing government, small and large businesses, labor unions, regional councils, and other workforce and economic development-focused organizations.
The focus at the Paris Air show, billed to be the “world’s biggest show on Earth dedicated to the aerospace industry,” will be an opportunity to discover all the industry innovations, observe leading-edge technologies, identify aerospace careers and training needs, and do lots of networking. It’s also an opportunity for Washington State to showcase the state’s expertise, products, and services to industry leaders and players worldwide.
“As Dean for Workforce Development at Clover Park Technical College, in Pierce County, I look forward to sharing information about the certificate and degree programs in Aerospace Composite Technician, Material Science – Composites and Nondestructive Testing, Aviation Maintenance, and more, offered at our South Hill Campus Aviation Center,” said Edmonds.
Additionally, Clover Park Technical College has become an affiliate of Global Corporate College, a network of colleges dedicated to closing the talent gap for companies with a national and international footprint. As a Global Corporate College affiliate, Clover Park will have access to the largest intellectual body of curriculum in the world, drawing from 47 national colleges and 17 international universities.
“I look forward to attending the Paris Air Show and informing companies as to how Clover Park can support them in Washington State and around the world.”
