In a joint effort to create a pipeline of qualified aircraft maintenance technicians to support the growing needs of the aviation industry, ST Engineering and UPS have entered into an agreement to work together on a skills progression program that will provide on-the-job training to prospective aviation technicians. Such an initiative is among the first established between an airline and MRO service provider to provide training and career opportunities to individuals interested in an aircraft maintenance career, and is one of the many talent recruitment and development initiatives that ST Engineering collaborates in with its partners.

Under the program, participants recruited from diverse backgrounds will undergo three years of on-the-job accelerated trade and skills training that is dedicated to UPS aircraft work. The program, which includes progressive training in the levels of apprentices, mechanics and technicians, will be conducted at ST Engineering’s airframe MRO facilities in Mobile, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida in the U.S. Trainees can apply for career openings at UPS upon graduation from the program and be considered for employment by the airline.
