A key success factor for BE Aerospace was that we could comply with the quality certification requirements, improve the skills of our existing workforce, and achieve results quickly at minimal costs.

The skills gap is real. Technology advances and people retiring are opening up jobs that need skilled workers. You don’t necessarily need a college education to find a great job, but some post-secondary and certification is needed and the community colleges offer that avenue.”
