A new program has kids finding out about skilled labor jobs in hands on sessions where they learn valuable skills.
The school has a relationship with Pratt & Whitney, and ET3 grew out of that. Locally, Pratt & Whitney overhauls airplane engines, and manufactures and finishes disks and blades for those engines.
“We were looking for a way to go beyond the typical,” said Double Churches principal Craig Fitts, “to utilize what they have and try to expose our kids to potential skilled labor careers.”
The program is also shared with Columbus Technical College.
“It’s letting them know about their options, what’s available in the workplace,” said Jim McNair, dean of Columbus Tech’s professional and technical studies division.
