Boeing Pre-Employment TrainingOVERVIEW & HISTORY

St. Louis Community College’s Workforce Solutions Group and the Emerson Center for Engineering & Manufacturing formed a joint venture with Boeing, (with assistance from the State of Missouri Division of Workforce Development), to develop and provide a Pre-employment Training Program in order to create an ongoing pool of employee candidates for Boeing.

Boeing expressed a need for a trained workforce to be available as positions for Assembly Mechanics, become available due to attrition. St. Louis Community College and Boeing, through the local WorkKeys® Service Center, profiled this occupation. The data was used to assess potential candidates and to develop specific curriculum for the training program.

The College, in consultation with Boeing, established the required assessment scores for the training program. The WorkKeys® skills assessed are applied math, locating information, and reading for information. Only those students meeting the required assessment scores for each of these skills are considered for the program.

PROGRAM STATISTICS

Thirty-one sessions have been completed since the training program started in November 2007. 266 students have completed the training program. 229 of the 266 program completers have secured employment at Boeing and GKN Aerospace, reflecting an 86% job placement rate.
