My husband was in the middle of the AIDT wedling/fitting class and had an Austal recruiter approach his group and asked them if they'd like to switch over to the Austal training. The recruiter said that they were guaranteed a job if they passed their tests. Two months later and we haven't heard from them or seen the Trades Assistnat program actually start hiring. Anybody have anything similar happen to them? Or know of any rumors going around about the Trades Assistant program? It's a difficult situation because he stopped his regular classes (standardized for any job) for this specilized training in aluminum. Now he can't take his certification anywhere that doesn't offer jobs for aluminum welders/shipfitters.
