This program is great for students interested in learning about careers and what's needed to land great jobs. It's even better for students interested in applied manufacturing jobs, as many of the skills translate across industries. And, it's ideal for students driven to pursue aviation industry careers!
Thanks to the support of the E.L. Cord Foundation, ISTAT Foundation, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, and generous supporters, there's no cost to participate.
Students and industry leaders may participate at both locations!!!
