The Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) has established its 12th campus, this one in Charlotte, North Carolina, where more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs have been added in the past six years, according to the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance. AIM is enrolling students in a manufacturing, fabrication, and repair program that it said will equip them to work as millwrights, industrial maintenance mechanics, and machinery workers.
Housed in a 51,000-sq-ft facility, the Charlotte campus includes a learning resource center, computer lab, and 17 classrooms equipped with audio-visual technology. “As the Queen City continues its exponential growth, AIM is proud to develop the workforce for current and future needs of the manufacturing industry,” Charlotte campus executive director Alex Diaz said.
Its network of 12 schools primarily serves as aviation maintenance schools that prepare students to obtain their mechanic’s certificate with ratings in airframe and powerplant for commercial, cargo, corporate, and private aviation operations.
