SpaceTEC Selects Turbine Workforce for Certified Aerospace Technician® Core exam prep

Sun. Mar 13, 2022 - by Josh Studl

In an effort to provide the best, and most effective, preparatory experience possible, SpaceTEC® is going with Turbine Workforce to deliver online technical materials and resources for the Certified Aerospace Technician Core exam. This move will provide a more modern, user-friendly and effective learning environment for technicians seeking SpaceTEC certification for a career in aerospace.

We are over the moon to work with SpaceTEC to help meet the growing demand for skilled workers and technicians in the aerospace industry.

We are also excited to eventually support the SpaceTEC Schools-to-Space® Program to provide primary and secondary STEM educators the tools to teach space.

SpaceTEC is a nonprofit organization that provides workforce development and education services to support the aerospace sector. SpaceTEC is based in Titusville, Florida, outside Cape Canaveral.

The competencies of the SpaceTEC Core Certification developed in coordination with the aerospace industry and employers affirm a robust knowledge and skill base that are mission critical: technical, mechanical, electrical, safety, materials, testing and measurement.
