SEATTLE (AP) — Gov. Chris Gregoire promoted training and education for aerospace jobs Wednesday at a series of events.
Her first stop was at Renton Technical College to see what students learn in the basic drilling and riveting course. While in Renton, she also toured the Boeing 737 manufacturing line.
Her final stop was at Boeing Flight Services Seattle Training Campus where pilots learn to fly in flight simulators.
The governor’s office says training programs and engineering colleges help provide the workforce for 700 aerospace companies in the state.
