About Air Washington 

The Air Washington project was a consortium of eleven of the state’s community and technical colleges which received a $20M Department of Labor TAACCCT grant to strengthen Washington’s aerospace industry through workforce training.

The grant exceeded its training goals.

  • Training goal = 2,615
  • Actual number of trained individuals = 3,806
  • Veterans training goal = 601

Eleven of Washington’s community and technical colleges, and organizations like the Center of Excellence, were involved in the grant. Those groups worked in a consortium format with an advisory board to develop course programming and curriculum while providing career counseling and training. This work encouraged thousands of people to consider careers in aerospace and advanced manufacturing.
