What Our Graduates Are Saying

My instructors were knowledgeable about the subjects and able to give me tips and tricks beyond the curriculum to improve my understanding of the material. With their support and the curriculum [at NAA] I was able to, not only get my certifications, but secure employment. Mason Herges

Avionics Technician

I think a lot of women are intimidated by this kind of work or they see themselves in a, like a cookie cutter role and I hope that more women will get into trades and technical work like this because there’s a demand for it and at the end of the day it feels really good knowing that hopefully I’m helping pave the way for women coming up behind me.

Elisa Warden

Avionics Technician

I left a job I had been in almost twenty years, and it was all or nothing… I have no words to really express how grateful I am for what I got out of [NAA]. It’s still surreal that not even 24 hours after taking my final test, I had an offer from Gulfstream. Paul Verdin
