It is our hope that the program will not only support our students but also the communities surrounding our campuses by providing residents with a pathway to earn a diploma and pursue higher education, in the form of aviation maintenance career training
Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) August 17, 2016
The Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) announced today the availability of a new high school completion program at all of its campuses through its partner, Penn Foster, one of the oldest and largest high schools in the United States. This new program is designed for students, ranging from traditional high school age to adults, who are interested in pursuing higher education and career training but lack the proper credentials, including proof of high school graduation.
“We are excited to partner with Penn Foster to introduce a program of this caliber,” said Dr. Joel A. English, Vice President of Operations of AIM. “It is our hope that the program will not only support our students but also the communities surrounding our campuses by providing residents with a pathway to earn a diploma and pursue higher education, in the form of aviation maintenance career training.”
Students accepted into AIM’s high school completion program can earn a regionally accredited high school diploma at their own pace, through a combination of online instruction and individualized, face-to-face academic support offered at any one of AIM’s 11 campuses across the United States, at no cost to them. Transfer credits may be awarded towards this 21-credit curriculum for students who have completed some level of high school and/or GED. Upon receiving their diploma, students will have the opportunity to apply for enrollment into AIM's Aviation Maintenance Technician program and train to earn their FAA certifications.
