Avionics program coming to Cincinnati State

May 27, 2018 by  

A program to train technicians to work in the avionics field will be coming to Cincinnati State Technical and Community College soon.

Cincinnati State is in Middletown, about 15 miles from Lebanon, and offers associate’s degrees and certificates. Some of the fields in which the institution grants degrees are financial services, hospitality management, and public safety; certification is available in advanced surveying and computer applications, among others.

A new avionics lab is being created at the college, with funding from MADE, as well as Middletown itself. The cost of the lab is estimated at $72,000, and will assist in training people who are interested in a career in avionics to learn basic skills.

Technicians working in the avionics (aviation electronics) field install, maintain, and repair the electronics found on various types of aircraft including drones, jets, airplanes, and helicopters. They work on communication and navigation systems, among others. They may also find work in the industry supplying parts for use in aerospace.

Currently, there is a demand for avionics specialists, who earn an average salary of $43,000 upon entry to the field. Experienced avionics experts average $85,000 annually.

More information can be found by calling the college at 513-217-3700, or by visiting the website. The program begins this fall.

Institutions like this might consider working with a flyer printing company to create a targeted mailer for the area, announcing the new courses.
