Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology has entered into a formal partnership with Delta Air Lines to establish a pipeline of trained aviation maintenance technicians (AMT) certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, the company said.
As part of a nationwide search for training programs in multiple markets, Delta performed lengthy onsite evaluations of more than 80 colleges or programs and ultimately approved 45 for partnership — including all four of Spartan College´s campuses. Headquartered in Dallas, Spartan College is the only Delta approved partner in greater Los Angeles, Denver, and Tulsa, Okla. Delta found that each of Spartan College´s campuses offering AMT or Airframe and Powerplant programs met its high standards of operation. Spartan graduates could be eligible for hire by Delta, or one of its subsidiary companies upon completion of training and degree.
According to The Boeing company´s 2017-2036 long-term aviation and aerospace global outlook, more than 648,000 new aviation technicians are needed by 2036.
