Aviation Workforce Success Project (AWSP)

Our nation faces critical projected shortages of skilled aviation maintenance professionals. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a faster than average job growth for aircraft technicians of five percent from 2019 to 2029.* The Aviation Technician Education Council (ATEC) estimates a need for more than 10,000 mechanics annually to meet national market demand.** Penn College was awarded an Aviation Workforce Development Grant of $214,500 from the FAA to help bolster the numbers of individuals entering these rewarding careers.
