This proposal for a program designed to train workers to manufacture single-engine, piston-driven aircraft for Cessna Corporation was developed by Independence Community College in conjunction with Pittsburgh State University (Kansas) and the Southeast Kansas Area Vocational-Technical School. The proposal provides for on-site training in a state-of-the-art 8,400 square foot training facility; a job training director; a customized training curriculum; a total quality management training staff; selection and assessment screening of employees using college-administered tests chosen in conjunction with Cessna officials; utilization of government-funded grants totaling over $2 million; a state-of-the-art aviation training model; and ongoing training and retraining. Specific training topics included in this proposal are: (1) assumptions and exceptions with respect to materials, processes, and manufacturing methods; (2) training process flow; (3) selection and assessment of employees; (4) pre-employment training and education; (5) infrastructure for planning and coordination; (6) human and physical asset capabilities and resources; (7) utilization of funding sources; (8) sharing of responsibilities between providers; (9) measurement of training effectiveness; (10) expected costs; and (11) risk assessment. The final sections include a drawing of the training facility, job descriptions, a chart illustrating the Cessna training assessment model, an educational needs assessment survey instrument, occupational profiles in the aircraft mechanics series, and other financial information.
