Apprenticeships soon available at West Star Aviation

West Star Aviation is collaborating with Careerwise in Colorado to establish an apprenticeship program, committing to at least five apprentices a year for three years. At least two apprentices – specializing in “aviation technology” and paint – will be taken on from August 2018. The company says another 14 places could open for 2018, but this will be decided on December 1, 2017. Apprentices will be considered for full-time employment at the end of the program.

“There is a growing need for new trade and skill development, especially in aviation, and there is a lack of trade schools for aircraft maintenance and paint, so if we can train students interested in the aviation market, we can take them to whatever level we want or need them to be at,” said Katie Johnson, director of human resources, West Star Aviation.

“Working side by side with a West Star expert will help our apprentices develop the fundamental skills while still in school, and also continue to develop their passion for aviation.”
