The Manufacturing Academy (MA), developed by AJAC, is a registered Pre-Apprenticeship training program through Washington State.

This program offers a solid foundational career pathway into aerospace and advanced manufacturing apprenticeship opportunities including:

Upon completion, students will have the basic foundational skills to find gainful entry-level employment and may meet the minimum qualifications to pursue additional career pathways in advanced manufacturing through AJAC’s portfolio of apprenticeship programs.

Starting July 6th, AJAC will offer two in-person classes for individuals 18 and older looking to develop tangible real-world skills for the local advanced manufacturing industries. Each class is Monday through Friday, 8:00am – 2:00pm. 

Our two programs this summer will be South Seattle College (Georgetown Campus) and Bates Technical College (Downtown Campus)

AJAC operates the Manufacturing Academy at no-cost through grant funding that focuses on encouraging women, people of color, displaced workers, and low-income individuals to develop manufacturing skills and obtain living wage jobs.
