The ATEC annual survey is underway. All US-based educational institutions with certificated and non-certificated aviation technical programs are asked to respond.
The purpose of the questionnaire is to assess key trends in aviation maintenance education, gather demographics of the entering workforce, support industry recruitment programs and initiatives, and guide future association activities and priorities. This year's survey will also analyze the impact COVID-19 has had on the aviation technical career pipeline.
Aggregate results will be published in the ATEC Pipeline Report this spring, along with the list of participating schools. Specific identifying information regarding programs offered, current enrollment, graduation expectations and dates will also be included in ATEC’s online school directory.
Earlier today, ATEC sent each aviation program's designated "primary contact" a link to the survey. If your school did not receive an invitation to participate or would like to confirm your school's primary contact, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since data from various sources may be required to complete the survey, respondents are advised to collect information before beginning an electronic submission. To aid those efforts, a PDF version of the questionnaire is available for download here.
The survey is open Jan. 28 - Feb. 15.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
