Regional and business jet MRO group C&L Aviation Services will launch an aircraft maintenance apprenticeship program in April, following its registration with the U.S. Department of Labor. Students accepted into the program will be paid as apprentices while receiving on-the-job training aimed at preparing them to sit for FAA Airframe and Powerplant certification examination.
“We have seen a lot of growth here in the past few years and it is a really exciting time to launch our newly registered apprenticeship program,” said C&L Aviation Group recruiting manager Valerie Byers. “We have a great group of employees here at C&L, and their ability to pass on their years of knowledge and experience to the next generation is an incredible advantage to those who will enter the program.”
C&L will start its first class with six students, followed by a second class of six beginning this fall. Apprentices will work and receive their instruction at C&L’s 200,000-sq-ft MRO facility in Bangor, Maine.
