Mike Arnett, assistant regional manager of admissions for Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology.
“Aviation Exploration Day” and an Open House were held on March 6 at Spartan’s campus, 8820 E. Pine, and on March 27, they hosted “Fulfilling the Dream” and an Open House at Spartan’s Flight Campus, R.L. Jones, Jr. Airport. Over the last few years, Spartan has broadened its placement outreach to equip people for careers not only in aviation, but in many other technology career areas such as wind technology, medical equipment, heavy equipment, manufacturing and many others.
Aviation represents an unusual bright spot in today’s difficult environment, due to its aging workforce which is nearing retirement, creating a huge opportunity for new people entering the field. Wind technology, on the other hand, has been identified as “green” technology, with both state and federal governments offering big tax incentives and grants to boost use of renewable energy and reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. Federal and state goals call for an unprecedented growth of wind power technology.
A career in non-destructive testing provides not only a nationwide opportunity, but the skills learned are transportable from industry to industry, giving a person the possibility of more job opportunities.
Representatives are available to meet with and will explain the broad career opportunities for those people who acquire a Spartan education. They will also explain financial aid programs available to those who qualify as well as Spartan’s admissions requirements.
If you have ever been curious about having a career in aviation or other technology industries, this is a great time to explore your options. The public is invited to come and enjoy an informative and rewarding experience.
