This position involves communicating, both verbally and in writing, with other Collins Aerospace technical and quality compliance teams located in the United States and with our sole customer and partner located in the United States. Based on an evaluation, we have determined that the duties of the Program Quality Engineer’ s position requires knowledge of English (written and spoken). We also determined that the English language skills already required of other employees do not permit the performance of English language skills tasks related to the Program Quality Engineer’s position due to its highly technical nature.

​However, in Québec, Collins Aerospace limits as much as possible the number of positions for which it requires the knowledge of another language than French. Collins Aerospace solely requires proficiency in English where it is necessary for the performance of an employee’s duties.
