Certified Aviation Services, “CAS” is proud to implement a new student apprenticeship program with San Bernardino Valley College “SBVC” and other local colleges in the area. SBVC’s Aviation Maintenance Technician Degree is a 2-Year program where students receive their Airframe and Powerplant certificate. During their time in the program, CAS hires students to work on actual aircraft, engines, systems, panels, and more to complete 70 of their required student hours. This apprenticeship program allows student to receive real, on the job training under experienced, licensed mechanics. This benefits the students during their studies, as they are hired and paid as regular employees, CAS works around their school schedules, and they are kept on as employees after they graduate the program.
CAS met with the Dean of the Program, Vanessa Thomas, and her colleague Kenneth Wilkerson to show them the CAS facility at the San Bernardino Airport and present the program to the San Bernardino International Airport Authority Board to give awareness to what CAS is offering the community in professional development. CAS is also proud to donate materials and supplies to the school for educational purposes, reducing waste and keeping with their sustainability mission.
“CAS is continually looking to create concrete ways to develop and grow talent for its future growth needs. I am delighted that we have been able to successfully partner with San Bernardino Valley College to help young aspiring aviation professionals to gain a foothold in the industry. By combining their studies with real-life paid work, the students are accelerating access to their dream jobs. Following the training period, CAS expects to place all apprentices into one of their wide ranges of MRO activities.” – CAS President of Commercial, Paul Oliver
