The new educational facilities will provide learning resources to help meet a growing demand for MRO technicians.
The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics (PIA) is taking steps to cement its ranking as Forbes’ top U.S. technical trade school for 2017. With an ever-growing forecasted demand for maintenance technicians, PIA has decided to grow its facilities to keep pace. After approximately 10 months of construction, PIA will open a new expansion of its Youngstown-Warren branch this Wednesday, Sept. 20. The two-story, 8,500 sq. ft. teaching facility at Hangar 3 of Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport is intended to broaden opportunities for students by providing new teaching resources.
“Our investment in our facilities and our students is in response to strong career demand,” says President and CEO of PIA Suzanne Markle. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve new students and prepare them with the entry-level technical skills we know our employers seek.”
