Celebrating the Class of 2017:
Leading the Way in Aerospace and

On Friday, June 30, the Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC) will host a graduation ceremony to celebrate 49 of its graduating apprentices, who are employed across 24 aerospace and advanced manufacturing companies in Washington State. The four-year machining (Aircraft-Oriented) and three-year Aircraft Mechanic (Airframe) graduates will be awarded a nationally recognized journey-level certificate. This is a significant and momentous occasion for AJAC and Washington State, as we sent these graduates on to serve as the new generation of machinists and aircraft mechanics.
