Coastal Alabama Community College will begin offering a short-term certificate in Aviation Manufacturing Technology beginning fall 2022.
The 18-hour certificate was designed to prepare students for lucrative careers in the region’s aviation industry. Students will gain a foundational knowledge of aircraft assembly. Courses include Aviation Manufacturing and Aerostructure Assembly. Job-winning certificates from Snap-On Industrial’s certification program will be embedded into the courses. Students can earn certifications in skills such as multimeter operation, precision measurement, sheet metal assembly and torque.
High school dual enrollment students in Baldwin and Mobile are encouraged to participate in the certificate program. Courses will be offered at the Academy at the Fairhope Airport and the Alabama Aviation Center at Brookley Field, both sites of Coastal Alabama Community College.
Students who complete the certificate will have the option to continue their education earning FAA Licenses in Airframe and/or Powerplant due to Coastal Alabama’s Federal Aviation Administration designation as a part 147 school.
“This is such a great opportunity for students to earn a certificate that leads to a quality job opportunity with Airbus,” said Dr. Josh Duplantis, Dean of Workforce Development at Coastal Alabama. “This certificate will also allow students to jump back into education if they chose to do so and enhance their education with the Airframe and Powerplant license which will allow them to work in additional jobs at Airbus and at other aviation facilities in what is becoming one of the largest aviation corridors in the world.”
This program is supported by representatives of local aviation industries who are members of the advisory board.
Adult students should contact the Admissions Office or the Alabama Aviation Center at Coastal Alabama to learn more. High school students interested in learning more about this certificate should contact their high school counselor.
