June 11 Open House to Showcase Aviation Technology Program offered at LCC
Students can Get Trained, Get Certified, and Get a Job!
June 10, 2014
Lansing, MICH – Lansing Community College (LCC) will host an open house promoting its Aviation Technology program on Wednesday, June 11 from 6-8 p.m. at the Aviation Technology Center at the Mason Jewett Airport, in Mason, Mich.
The event provides an opportunity for prospective students to explore aviation program offerings, tour the Technology Center, and learn more about aviation maintenance careers.
"The program is challenging, but in 24 months our students will gain measurable expertise working with large and small planes, piston and jet engines, traditional aircraft construction and advanced composite materials," said Mark Cosgrove, program director of Aviation Technology. "This is a great opportunity to visit our facility and learn more about the program and profession."
Students that successfully complete the Aviation Technology program will be prepared to successfully pass all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) examinations and requirements necessary to earn their FAA license. Two associate degrees in the field can also be obtained by adding five additional courses during or after training.
"There are currently more than 138,000 aviation technician jobs available in the U.S.," Cosgrove said. "The technicians that hold an Airframe and/or Power Plant Certificate are in high-demand throughout the industry--and our Job Referral Program helps graduates fill those jobs. In fact, many of our students are offered employment before finishing the program."
The Aviation Technology open house is a free information session for those interested in joining the program. Staff from various LCC departments will be on-hand to help with admissions, assessments, financial aid, advising, and registration.
