MESA, AZ – Mesa Community College (MCC) joins with The Boeing Company to provide a nine-day cable harness wiring boot camp to launch new career opportunities in the aerospace industry.
The nine-day camps cost $255 for the tuition and provide an out-of-pocket investment with a full reimbursement of the tuition for camp trainees after passing the Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire HarnessAssemblies industry certification exam.
Trainees also get tuition reimbursement in each class after completing the nine-day camp with a passing grade and earning the industry certification. They must also participate in the Arizona Career Readiness Credential (ACRC) test to assess their Reading and Locating Information, Applied Mathematics, and Professional Skills.
Robert Blawat, operations manager for The Boeing Company, states that the boot camp program has been active for a year and developed an eight question, pre-assessment, and course curriculum to advance the participant’s industry skills for new career prospects.
Leah Palmer, executive director of the Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AzAMI) at MCC, said the boot camp program contributed to preparing MCC students for industry-recognized certification and validating their skills to meet local industry’s high demand. She also appreciated the program for accommodating the students with manufacturing education and career opportunities to many growing aerospace companies in Maricopa County.
“There are many growing aerospace companies in Maricopa County that need these skills, so this will open opportunities for manufacturing education and careers,” said Leah Palmer.
Students interested in joining the boot camp and earning the designated certification for pursuing a growth-oriented career in the aerospace industry must complete an online pre-assessment at mesacc.edu/wiring-bootcamp. For further information, students can contact Matt Rayman, the MCC student navigator at 480-461-7337 or email AzAMI@mesacc.edu.
