When relocating, students may still need to work while they are training. Northeast Helicopters has a great relationship with FedEx in Willington, CT. Students have been working for FedEx Ground for years while training at NEH. The pay is good, shifts are short, and working doesn’t interfere with training. Also they offer tuition Assistance up to $1500/year. Contact Rhonda for more details on how to apply.
