Florida Governor Ron DeSantis attended a contract signing for a new apprentice program founded by the Space Coast Consortium Apprentice Program held at One Web Satellites in July.
CCI was hired to capture the beginning of this innovative partnership between space companies and Eastern Florida State College. We provided a still photographer and video cameras to record the group signing and presentation of nine student apprentices who signed on for a two year program with OneWeb Satellites, RUAG Space USA, Knight’s Armament and Rocket Crafters.
Sara Reed, Executive Assistant, Senior Management Team, Airbus OneWeb Satellites said “CCI has always been very accommodating to our short term, always changing, high demand requests that come with the nature of our business. They deliver consistent quality and service, and are one of our go-to event vendors. Thank you, CCI!”
These students will receive on-the-job training so they can work in high-tech and advanced manufacturing jobs after graduation. The business owners developed the apprentice program to help them find qualified candidates to fill jobs in their industry. Governor DeSantis believes programs like this will help Florida achieve his goal of being No. 1 in aerospace by 2030.
Governor Ron Desantis was joined by Frank DeBello from Space Florida, and Jim Richey, President of Eastern Florida State College.
