A big day in aviation history, with a connection to Institute for Workforce Advancement no less. Aviator #CharlesLindberg took off from Roosevelt Field on this day to start his historic 3,610 mile flight across the Atlantic. As you may know, IWA is running our Intro to Composites program at the Cradle Of Aviation Museum. Interestingly, our course materials and workshop area are housed in the original hanger where he kept the #spiritofSaintLouie Other than some power upgrades, I doubt much has changed inside that hanger in the years since… We are lucky to have the opportunity to work in such an historic environment.
The IWA, a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit, is one of the northeast region’s leading advanced manufacturing workforce-development training organizations. We provide essential programming for incumbent and in-transition workers, and college and non-college bound students; from energy to aerospace, pharmaceuticals to building trades. The IWA partners with industry, government, and educational institutions to fill the employment pipeline for in-demand engineers, and installation and technical service workers, with a focus on hard-to-fill positions, and on low-income, high needs communities.
The IWA also works with national research and training institutions to ensure our programs consistently meet and exceed local and national skills requirements.
