The Elevate Aviation

An announcement from the The Elevate Aviation Learning Centre

I would like to introduce you to The Elevate Aviation Learning Centre and a potential career exploration opportunity for your clients.

In case you missed the announcement on December 12th, Elevate Aviation is opening a Learning Centre at EIA. We have 10 weeks of classes from March to May 2019 for youth and adults ages 15+. We will be showcasing Aviation Careers, Aviation Safety, and Design Thinking for Innovation (problem finding and prototyping).

We take participants to behind-the-scenes spaces at Edmonton International and Parkland Airports, Canadian North, North Cariboo Air, NAV Canada, Absolute Combustion, and ACAMP. They will meet members of the RCAF and industry partner employees. Our focus is on facilitating career exploration and assisting participants, especially those from underrepresented groups, such as women, Indigenous, and multicultural populations, in designing their own potential aviation career. We provide support to participants who wish to pursue an aviation career through our 5 step mentorship program.

We have booked 10 week-long classes this year with 6 weeks for High School Students, 2 weeks for Indigenous Adults, and 2 weeks for Adult Women. Our High School classes are fully booked.

We are now taking reservations for our adult women weeks, either May 6-10 or May 27-31. If you have clients who would be interested, please give them my contact email, and I will send them more information and a registration form.
