Lincoln Land Community College is helping students in Central Illinois get their start in the aviation industry with their program that’s training the next generation of aircraft mechanics. Becoming an aircraft mechanic offers students the chance to enter a job field that currently has high demand for new employees.
Dave Pietrzak is the Director of the Aviation Program at LLCC, says the program at the school lets students earn the certifications they need to become an aircraft mechanic, as well as continue the education on to an associate of applied science degree.
Students are often concerned about the job market for their field of study once they graduate, and Pietrzak says the job market for aviation mechanics is strong.
The program typically takes about 18 months to complete, and potential students can get more information on the program by contacting Pietrzak at 217-544-4965.
