Wichita Area Technical College

Wichita Area Technical College’s aviation training received a boost Monday morning from a major equipment donation and a workforce training grant.

The Kansas Department of Commerce provided a $183,000 grant to Wichita Area Technical College to cover the tuition and training for 70 sheet metal workers.

Spirit AeroSystems is looking to hire up to 500 sheet metal workers but is having a hard time finding qualified candidates.
