DAL Approves All Spartan College Campuses To Train Aviation Maintenance Workers

Partnership Establishes A Pipeline Of Trained, Certified Maintainers

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 FAA.

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.

“An alliance between Spartan College and Delta means a student with aspirations to work for a major airline is now a step closer to realizing those career goals,” said Dr. Dan Peterson, CEO of Spartan Education Group. “Spartan welcomes the partnership with Delta, which will serve as a resource for continuous improvement of the airframe and powerplant programs. This partnership also ensures Delta is a highly-visible option for students as a possible future employer and is a direct return on investment for his or her training.”

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.

“Spartan-trained students are a significant contributor to the aerospace workforce nationwide,” said Dr. Peterson. “As the competition grows for skilled, ready-to-work aviation technicians, Spartan’s commitment to continuous improvement and geographical expansion means we will be ready to meet the need.”

Dennis Manzo, campus president of Spartan College-LA, said serving as the exclusive Los Angeles area workforce partner with Delta means students at his two Spartan campuses have a direct connection to a top tier employer.
