I just found this great aviation maintenance program, almost in my backyard. What is important about the work they are doing is development of standards for technicians. From there information can be gathered and analyzed, then used to guide continuous improvement of the aviation system.

NCATT project headquarters is located at Tarrant County College under the direction of Floyd Curtis, division chair of TCC Aeronautical Training. TCC partner institutions in this project include Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Pennsylvania College of Technology, San Jose State University, Weatherford College and the United States Air Force. “It’s important to note that NCATT is an aviation industry formed and governed organization, established to serve our industry,” said Curtis. The aviation industry stakeholders along with the NSF partners have established:

Industry standards for training and certifying Aircraft Electronics Technicians;
Curriculum supporting the national standards;
An industry developed and recognized certification program for aircraft electronic technicians; and
An accreditation for institutions meeting the established standards.
