Moore Norman Technology Center has its eyes set on a burgeoning state industry as the career tech institute launches a new program for aspiring aerospace trainees.
The career tech institute is developing its first Aerospace Technician Program, set to open by fall 2023. The 18-month program will teach students the core elements required to receive certification as an airframe and powerplant mechanic.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to provide high-demand aerospace training for the local community,” MNTC Superintendent Brian Ruttman said. “Together we will help grow the local economy and build better tomorrows for students.”
The institution is approximately six months into the process of making the program a reality; MNTC Aerospace and Transportation Director Lee Dow said the tech center is in the process of getting accredited by the Federal Aviation Administration to put out licensed airframe and powerplant mechanics.
