Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee

The Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee matches existing employees of more than 200 Washington state companies with a company mentor, who trains the apprentice in a variety of aerospace skills. An AJAC apprenticeship combines on-the-job training supplemented with one evening class each week at a community or technical college. Skills that are most in demand include machinist, airframe mechanic, precision metal fabricator, and plastic process technician. For applicants who don’t yet hold these skills or experience the AJAC offers a 10-week Manufacturing Academy it calls a pre-apprenticeship.
