“Core Plus Aerospace and aligned hands-on programs across the state are preparing students with the skills Boeing employees use every day,” said Essentia Rivera, Senior Manager, Workforce Development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The skills they learn in BPET aligned programs are in-demand and will give them an advantage when applying for jobs and starting a career at Boeing.”

A full list of current BPET-certified courses and aligned job roles can be found here.

Key details for students from BPET certified programs include:

  • Must pass standard Boeing pre-hire contingencies.
  • Students will receive a Letter of Intent within five business days of applying and will then begin the offer process.
  • Students from BPET-certified programs can receive a BPET Enrollment Confirmation Form from their instructor. The BPET Enrollment Confirmation Form is valid for 24 months from the date signed by a student’s instructor. After this period, students can still apply for jobs at Boeing, they’ll just go through the standard hiring process, which includes an interview and can typically take 4-6 weeks.
  • Once hired, all Boeing manufacturing employees must successfully complete the new hire training process.
