Description

After almost 4 years since the retirement of the Shuttle, Florida is witnessing a renaissance in new aerospace projects and employment. With ever more commercial space activity blossoming at the Cape Canaveral Spaceport, and new aerospace ventures springing up at airports in Melbourne and Titusville, to the explosive growth of Port Canaveral; the challenge to the workforce on the Space Coast is not finding employment but providing the necessary talent and certifications to meet the demands of these new developments.

How can Florida assure now that a future lack of skilled talent doesn’t begin to drive future exciting work to other locations?

Top Three Takeaways

  1. Florida’s recent success in the transformation of the Space Coast has precipitated new challenges in the availability of a quality workforce to meet future needs. As it has in the past, the state and region are responding proactively to address those challenges.
  2. In addition to meeting the immediate problems that confront the Space Coast, efforts are underway to enhance the technical capability and attractiveness of the talent pool with innovative certification programs required of the more rigorous disciplines in manufacturing.
  3. Aggressive collaborations are ramping up to incorporate the workforce capabilities and facilities blossoming in other emerging clusters throughout the region; such as Simulation, Optics, Sensors, Aviation Design and Advanced Manufacturing – to present a robust and integrated talent pool for the aerospace projects of the future.
