This curriculum is designed for select military personnel for a career as an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT). FAA-certificated AMTs hold highly-transferable skills that can be used in a broad range of industries; including airlines, fixed-base operators, manufacturers, repair stations, aviation maintenance schools, and in business or general aviation. Successful completion of the program and the required FAA exams leads the student to an FAA Mechanic Certificate with an Airframe rating. Students generally also obtain a Powerplant rating to become an “A&P Mechanic”.
Note: Students must satisfy the University’s minimal requirements by testing out or completing ENGL 010 or ENGL 079, and MATH 010 or MATT 017 with a grade of C or better.
Federal Regulations Requirement This program is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration. Training is conducted in accordance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations § 147.17. Standards for mechanics are found in FARs § 65.71 - § 65.89.
