January 11, 2018- Aviation Department employees are receiving valuable training at CPCC thanks to a $135,000 JPMorgan Chase grant.
Course work includes electrical systems, welding, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification and OSHA industrial safety certification. The grant benefits more than 100 Aviation Department employees providing 4,498 hours of educational training through this spring.
"The Airport recognizes the need to develop and maintain a highly skilled workforce for today and the future," said Brent Cagle, aviation director at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. "That is why today's news is not only exciting, but extremely important. Charlotte Douglas International Airport generates $16.2 billion yearly to the local economy. It takes many partners and a talented, skilled workforce to make us the premier airport that we are. Our partnership with JPMorgan Chase and CPCC provides vital training opportunities for Aviation Department employees to thrive and better serve our passengers."
The grant represents one of CLT's six Strategic Principles - Value Employees. The Aviation Department incorporates this principle through many methods, including a Workforce Development Program and employee training and education. These programs create opportunities for better jobs through increased skills.
The Aviation Department employs more than 500 full-time and part-time employees. Browse the latest job openings.
