Okanagan College will enjoy more spaces to train students for good-paying aircraft technician jobs, thanks to a new partnership with the Industry Training Authority, KF Aerospace, and the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada. The partnership will specifically support apprentices in the college’s aircraft maintenance engineering structures program. “With a global and regional demand for people in the aerospace industry exceeding the supply of qualified apprentices, it is critical to find solutions to meet the needs of industry, while creating good-paying jobs for people,” said British Columbia’s Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training Melanie Mark. “I’m extremely proud of the collaborative solution we’ve been a part of, in bringing more training opportunities for people in Kelowna.”
