AAR - a firm that operates a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility for commercial aircraft in Duluth - announced Thursday it will expand its partnership with Lake Superior College, in an effort to bring more skilled workers into its ranks.
Students who earn Federal Aviation Administration aircraft mechanic’s certificates through the school’s Aviation Maintenance Technician Program could be eligible to receive tuition reimbursements as large as $15,000. AAR also will offer students job shadowing and mentorship opportunities.
AAR has been working with Lake Superior College since 2013 to help meet its talent needs.
“Lake Superior College and AAR already have been working closely together to serve our students and help prepare a highly-skilled workforce. This new EAGLE Career Pathway Program will make our connection even stronger and offer increased opportunity for our students,” said Dr. Patrick Johns, president of Lake Superior College, in a prepared statement.
