CHARLOTTE – Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM) extended its campus locations to include Charlotte as part of its continued effort to address growing workforce demand for skilled technicians.

The Charlotte Regional Business Alliance reported over 15,000 manufacturing jobs have been added in the Charlotte Region since 2013. AIM is enrolling in a manufacturing, fabrication, and repair program to meet the growing demand for skilled technicians.

Standard job duties include machine assemblage and repair; testing, adjustment and calibration of equipment and the cleaning, lubrication and movement of machinery.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual wage of a millwright is over $55,200.
