West Valley Machining Signing Day 

 

 

 

Last week, we announced the launch of the West Valley Apprenticeship Program. Beginning next year, students out of West Valley will participate in aerospace apprenticeships, which include paid on-the-job training where they will concurrently earn core academic credits and hours towards their journeyman license.

 

This program was developed as a continuation of the Core Plus block program West Valley offers juniors, where they earn math, science, and ELA credits. 

 

The Yakima Herald reported, “Trevor Mackey, Osborne Rogers and Bradley Ethier will receive 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training with CubCrafters, Triumph Actuation Systems, and Pexco Aerospace, respectively. They will also receive 150 hours of instruction. By graduation they will have not only their high school diploma, but also up to 15 college credits. They will have earned more than $22,000 in wages from their employer and will have nationally recognized journeyman credentials.”
