TULSA, Okla. (May 20, 2021) ―Officials from Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters announced today they are forming an exclusive educational partnership between the two organizations. Spartan College and the Teamsters Union will host an official signing day in August.

 

For more than a century, the Teamsters Union has been serving as a public voice for the rights of working men and women. With 1.4 million members located in the United States and Canada, Teamsters serve as the backbone of growth for leading industries such as aviation, freight, and transportation. More specifically, its Airline Division has over 90,000 members across trades such as aircraft maintenance, piloting, customer service and more.

 

Established in 1928, Spartan College has trained over 100,000 pilots and aviation technicians and currently offers diploma and associate degree programs in Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT), Aviation Electronics Technology, Nondestructive Testing Technology/Quality Control Management and Aviation Flight. Additionally, Spartan College has developed a hybrid AMT option that maximizes student flexibility while minimizing time away from home, along with an online Bachelor of Science degree program in Technology Management.

 

To serve the educational goals of Teamsters and their families, Spartan College offers special scholarship opportunities to those who qualify at all four of their campus locations – Tulsa, Oklahoma, Broomfield, Colorado, Riverside and Inglewood, California.  Through this partnership, the Teamsters Union and Spartan College are committed to co-developing custom training to ensure their students are at the forefront of emerging aviation industry needs.

 

“We are thrilled to be a part of this monumental partnership,” said Rob Polston, Chief Executive Officer at Spartan College. “We know this exclusive partnership will allow us to match our expertise of delivering career-oriented aviation training to the Teamsters Union who for decades has set the standards for labor benefits that have positively impacted our economy. Furthermore, we are excited to co-develop training products that anticipate the future needs of the aviation industry. Both Spartan College and the Teamsters Union will benefit greatly from this partnership.”

 

“We feel this partnership is a perfect alliance,” said Capt. David Bourne, Director of the Teamsters Airline Division. “Spartan College is a well-recognized educational institution in the field of aviation that continues to invest in their student experience and innovative programs. We are excited to be able to offer incredible educational opportunities to Teamsters and their families to support their careers today and into the future.”
