“Among today’s aviation service providers, software is playing an ever-increasing role in day-to-day operations, so it is becoming more critical for A&P technicians to be computer and software proficient,” said Continuum founder and president Jack Demeis.
Lansing Community College, a public two-year college located in Lansing, Mich., is the first to take advantage of Demeis’s desire to work with academia. The college has entered into an agreement with the company to add Corridor aviation service software training to its aviation maintenance program curriculum. Continuum will issue Corridor certification along with official certificates to all technicians completing an approved curriculum at participating schools. The first Corridor class is scheduled to be offered either during the summer or fall semester.
“By working with the educational institutions in our industry we hope not only to improve the preparedness of new A&Ps entering its shops but also to generate excitement about the industry and the new technologies shaping it among those considering a career in aviation maintenance,” Demeis said.
