North Central WDC


Presenter: Riva Morgan

  • Introduction
    • Laurie Miller, WorkSource- Omak
  • College Supported
    • Wenatchee Valley College
  • Goals for the position
    • Outreach and Recruitment
    • Orientation and Assessment
    • Job Readiness Skill Development
    • Transition to employment


  • Balance of effort: (e.g. % of time spent)
    • Recruiting – 25% Initial Program Recruitment and Assessment through WorkSource - Advertising through workshops and Weekly Orientations at WVC Omak Campus. Recruitment on hold this PY.
    • Student Support (meet, refer, workshops, etc) Ongoing meetings WVC Omak Campus, referrals to community resources e.g., food stamps, scholarship research & application assistance, some AW students on regular WIA Caseload so regular counseling sessions. As the class progresses and students begin working on job readiness skills this will be a minimum of the entire 25% of time allotted
    • Industry Liaison – Continuing to develop relationships with employers and educating them on the skilled work force that will be entering the job market. Local employers, e.g., SunOpta, Pine Creek Pack, Brewster Manufacturing, Carbon Cycle Crush. The focus at this time is the Student Support.

Student Tracking – Weekly visits to the college and class observation allow student tracking in the early stages of training.

    • Other? Regular assistance and ongoing education & clarification to Dislocated Workers with Training Benefits and/or Commissioner Approved Training issues. This is an ongoing service request from the students that are drawing UI Benefits.
  • Biggest Challenge
    • Only a 25% position in addition to a regular WIA Caseload.
    • As students near completion, the level of assistance with job readiness will increase. The amount of time needed for outreach will increase, recruitment for On the Job Training will become a key marketing focus.

Success story or ‘Best Practice’ so far

          • The use of Career Scope has provided great insight for students looking for a career in Aerospace. Students can see the correlation between their aptitudes and their interests.

What Successful Grads

Are Saying !

What We’ve Been

Up to Lately

  • RTC will offer our 1sttooling certification class starting December 2012
  • Precision Machining Program is full and has waitlist of 25 people
  • Assembly Mechanic Program is currently offering AM and PM sections. Each section has approximately 25 students
  • Precision Machining Program graduated 9 students in August. All found employment within 45 days. Precision Machining has a 100% placement rate
  • One machining student with an extensive criminal record was able to secure employment after completing the program and is now earning $25 an hour!
  • We are currently meeting all of our projected goals.

Assembly Mechanic - July 2012 Graduate # 1 wrote:

“You have given me the spring board I needed to an expansive career with Boeing. Prior to taking your course I submitted 224 resumes to Boeing. As soon as I completed your program I applied to Boeing again and I was immediately hired. Thank you, you all have assisted me in achieving my wildest dreams.”

Assembly Mechanic - July 2012 Graduate #2 wrote:

“I have been applying at Boeing for four years and never received an interview. After I graduated from the Assembly Mechanic Program I applied to Boeing and was hired right away. I was impressed with how thorough and complete the online and hands on classes were. The classes taught me a lot and prepared me to work at Boeing. I recommend this class to anyone who would like to advance in the aerospace field. “


What We Would Change About SOW

  • Reference:
  • SOW – Work plan
  • Priority 2 / Strategy 2:1
  • Issue:Common Entry Assessment Test
  • ReasonThe Aerospace Assembly Mechanic Program is open enrollment through the Edmonds CC/WATR Center Continuing Education Division.
  • Under the Edmonds CC open enrollment policy, RTC has no authority to restrict enrollment based on test/assessment results
  • Reference:
  • SOW - Work Plan
  • Priority 3 / Strategy 3:1
  • Issue:Remove “including modules for Aircraft Assembly” from the outcomes related to the Advanced Manufacturing Curriculum
  • Reason: The RTC Aerospace Assembly Mechanic Program training curriculum:
  • Pre-exists Air Washington – developed and used prior to Air Washington
  • Used no Air Washington $’s to finance curriculum development
  • Is proprietary, RTC has permission to use the Aerospace Assembly Mechanic curriculum via a partnership contract w/ WATR Center - We have no authority or permission to share
  • Reference:SOW - Work Plan Priority 3 / Strategy 3.4 & SOW – Table 3.ii Attainment of Degree
  • Issue: New and Updated Articulation Agreements
  • Reason: Pursuing Articulation Agreements with 4 years institutions for RTC Aerospace Assembly Mechanic or Precision Machining Programs is impractical.
  • Aerospace Assembly Mechanic Program = 12 week course
  • Precision Machining Program = 2 year course
  • 100% of Precision Machining graduates have gone directly into the workforce. To date, two PM grads have expressed an interest in possibly pursuing an AASdegree/ none are considering a BS degree
  • We may seek to establish articulation agreements with K12 for the Assembly Mechanic training.

College Partner Update:

Presenter: Rebecca Milligan

  • Big Bend Community College
  • What’s new at BBCC
  • Fall quarter, 63 participants, 8 vets 11 females. On track for females, working with Vet numbers. We have focused on recruiting Veterans, have attended 3 Vet specific recruitment events (JBLM, Yakima, and Moses Lake stand down). Will continue to actively recruit veterans. Are enrolling new AMT students in the winter quarter for the first time as part of the grant.
  • We saw success in recruiting females to the Pre-employment course, hoping to convert them to AMT students.

Actively recruited ESL students to the Pre-Employment class- wasn’t successful.

  • Not currently seeing a demand for IBEST classes, possibly the two years is too long? May have to pilot without seeing the demand first. (IF you build it, they will come)
  • What would we change in the statement of work? IBEST -
