Bombardier (BBD.A) announced 10 participants have graduated from the first cohort of apprentices enrolled in its comprehensive apprenticeship training program.

The program was developed in association with Texas State Technical College (TSTC) in Red Oak, Texas.

Graduates are offered full-time employment at Bombardier’s Red Oak facility as an aircraft assembler or aerostructures apprentice to work on the Global 7500 business jet’s advanced smooth flex wing.

The two-year, nationally-accredited apprenticeship program allows the Montréal-based transportation company to attract talented individuals from across the U.S. to grow its labour force in Red Oak.

Bombardier launched the program in December 2019.

It offers students the opportunity to enter the high-tech aerospace sector with no specific pre-requisites. It challenges them to present a winning attitude and develop mechanical dexterity and sound logic skills to pass an entry-level aptitude test. In turn, Bombardier and TSTC offer expert training in conjunction with TSTC’s facilities, allowing students to benefit at no cost from industry-tailored modules, experienced instructors, tools and equipment and financial support.

Since its inception, some 80-plus individuals are currently being trained in the program. Bombardier and TSTC plan to recruit more than 50 individuals into the program over the next two years.

“I am thrilled to celebrate the successful graduation of the women and men in the BAAP program who will now transition forward in new careers at Bombardier, helping to ramp up the development of Bombardier’s Global 7500 program. The accomplishments of these talented individuals aptly underscore the importance of fueling the aerospace pipeline in our Red Oak facility, bringing world-class training opportunities and cementing Bombardier as a key pillar of the community. It’s a wonderful way for Bombardier to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week in the U.S,” said Bombardier Executive Vice President, Operations and Operational Excellence Paul Sislian.

Bombardier is up 1.43 per cent, trading at $2.13 at 12:02 pm ET.
