The Charleston Rotary Breakfast Club will tour the South Carolina Aeronautical Training Center, located at Trident Technical College’s on Thornley Campus in North Charleston. The facility provides training for well-paying jobs in expanding advanced manufacturing industries with diverse workforces and excellent upward job mobility.
The $80 million, 218,000-square-foot facility includes a ramp, two hangars with high bays to accommodate large aircraft training aids, 22 classrooms, an advanced manufacturing lab, a mechatronics lab, 23 specialty labs, six flex-space labs, 37 faculty/staff offices, meeting spaces, a café and catering kitchen.
The training center promotes economic development in the region and, as a statewide asset, will assist the S.C. Department of Commerce in attracting more aeronautic and advanced manufacturing suppliers to the state.
This three-story facility increases Trident Tech’s capacity to provide an educated and trained pipeline of workers with the skills required now and in the future. Students on group tours can see modern advanced manufacturing training first hand.
