2016 Aerospace Survey
Under direction of state law, the Workforce Board in conjunction with the State Board for Community & Technical Colleges evaluates aerospace and advanced materials manufacturing training programs.
This survey has CLOSED and results are being tabulated.
Previous reports have indicated that the worker experience gap is pervasive and that demand is concentrated in key occupations, including:
- CNC programmers
- Assemblers and engineers.
Increased overtime work and recruiting were common strategies in addressing shortages.
Washington accounts for nearly 20 percent (or in one five) of the nation's aerospace jobs, up from 14 percent in 2004.
