Boeing has predicted that aviation maintenance technicians will be in even greater demand—to the tune of 600,000 by 2031. JSfirm.com agrees technicians will be in more demand than pilots—to the tune of 30 percent of planned aviation hiring for technicians versus 7.5 percent for pilots.

Employers in this field have the option of contacting PCC and posting their employment opportunities for PCC students and graduates. To have these employment opportunities sent directly to your email account, contact Tamara Williams at twilliam@pcc.edu or 971-722-7243.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education is a nationally recognized program that allows you to earn elective college credit, while gaining valuable on the job experience in your major area of study. You can practice the skills you've learned in the classroom in real job settings. With cooperative education (sometimes called co-op, internship or practicum) you gain practical work experience, make informed career decisions, and gain an advantage in the job market through the cooperative effort of you, the college and an employer.

Cooperative Education is not a required course for AMT students, but they may take it as an elective. For information regarding Jobs & Internships, contact:
