Avionics News April 2018 - 63

Avionics students use an aircraft classroom with a 727 cockpit and avionics bay to learn transport aircraft systems.

Avionics News: Do you offer industry training
short courses?
Thurman: Not now, but we do have programs in
development.
Avionics News: Do you have any active internships
or apprentice programs with local MROs or OEMs?
Thurman: Unfortunately, we don't currently
have any internship programs specifically for aviation
electronic program students. We do have active programs
for our aviation maintenance students. Recently, we
have been named a Delta Air Lines preferred aviation
maintenance school. We have partnerships with
companies like United, Envoy, Republic Airways, AAR
and more. Every year, we continuously grow these
relationships to interview more graduates.
Avionics News: Do you partner with local
industry, and if so, how is it working?
Thurman: We encourage all avionics instructors to
take frequent field trips to any job site that can demonstrate
a real-world working environment. We have field trips
to FlightSafety International's simulator assembly plant
located in nearby Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
We also visit the American Airlines APU wiring shop,
Autopilot Central, and Lufthansa Technik Component
Services. All of these shops have former Spartan graduates

currently working there. We also partner with the Tulsa
Air and Space Museum, taking all our fundamentals
classes for tours during their first weeks here at Spartan.

Avionics News: Why are students coming to your
school? Do you have any programs to actively recruit
new avionics students?
Thurman: Students choose Spartan for our long
reputation in the industry, as well as the relatable
knowledge the program has for the current industry.
Although we agree our program is the best, our graduates
are the ones who speak about their experiences and
attract our future students. One graduate from the
program recently said, "Spartan education, training and
the name on the resume helped advance my career."
Avionics News: What are you hearing from
industry on your placements and your programs about
the skill levels of your graduates?
Thurman: Feedback is always favorable and
includes statements such as, "Spartan graduates have
the foundational knowledge to hit the ground running
and eager to continue learning from our seasoned
technicians." That's always good to hear. q
