To connect students and alumni with career opportunities, NAA’s career fair took place on November 7, 2019, at their New England campus.

NAA focuses solely on aviation maintenance training to exceed expectations from employers and adhere to safety requirements set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Aircraft mechanics are in high demand as technicians retire and fleet sizes increase.

With NAA’s 14-month accelerated training program, students can learn from professional and experienced instructors to prepare for current and future career opportunities!

According to Boeing’s 2019 Pilot & Technician Outlook, 769,000 new aviation maintenance technicians will be needed globally by 2038. With the continued demand for qualified professionals in the industry, future career fairs will be key to connect students and alumni directly with employers.
