Company gets fast-track training

DOTHAN, Ala. -- A new fast-track to work program was announced Monday for Commercial Jet. The program is called CJET Academy. It partners Dothan's Commercial Jet, at Dothan Regional Airport, with Alabama Industrial Development Training, the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and others in a free eight-week training course for jobs at Commercial Jet. John Schildroth, vice president and general manager of Commercial Jet's Dothan operations, said the program arose out of a need for workers, now. The training will be taught by AIDT and Commercial Jet personnel. It will be targeted to aircraft structure and sheet metal work, the jobs needed immediately at Commercial Jet. It will cost about $2,500 to $3,000 per student and will be paid for through state and private funds. Classes are set to begin Oct. 22. They will be taught on campus at Commercial Jet, most likely in the AIDT mobile training rooms. (Source: Dothan Eagle, 09/08/14)
