Workforce Development and Resources

Research shows that many students want to attend a college near home and work near home when they graduate. Largely local influences, such as parents and school counselors, can affect a student’s decision to become an equipment technician.
As such, AED feels that the most effective recruitment campaigns focus on local task forces pooling efforts and resources toward the common goal of student recruitment. AED provides a variety of tools and resources to assist in those recruitment efforts.
