Industry led Training Program (ILTP)

The federal government announced over $39 million in funding under its new Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program to the Canadian Council of Aviation and Aerospace’s (CCAA) Industry Led Training Program (ILTP) for the aviation and aerospace sector.

The ILTP project will produce over 2000 hours of new digitized training content that will equip employers with the tools they need to provide on-the-job training for its workers. This program is the first of its kind in Canada, and will expand the pathways available for workers to enter the aerospace and aviation sector.

Accelerated Assessment and Certification

The CCAA provides a self-assessment screening tool for individuals looking to enter the Canadian aviation and aerospace maintenance and manufacturing labour market.

Finding skilled aviation and aerospace workers can be challenging at the best of times which is why the CCAA launched its Accelerated Assessment and Certification program.

We work with motivated skilled foreign workers, underemployed or unemployed Canadians to help them enter the aviation and aerospace industry by,

  • providing a comprehensive self-assessment screening tool to identify gaps in knowledge;
  • working with CCAA staff to expedite their certification towards in-demand occupations;
  • providing candidates with advice and guidance they need to achieve full certification,
  • matching a candidate’s skills with potential employers.

For employers, CCAA’s AACP means access to pool of skilled candidates matched to a company’s particular needs.
