The Aviation Maintenance Technology program prepares students for careers as aviation airframe technicians, or aviation powerplant technicians. Specific areas of training include aircraft structure inspection and testing; federal aviation regulations; aircraft and electronic flight instrument systems; aircraft auxiliary systems; aircraft welding; aircraft electrical systems; hydraulic, pneumatic, and fuel systems; and occupational safety and health codes. Two certificate options are available consisting of 40 semester credit hours and taking approximately one to two years to complete. Upon successful completion of the Airframe Certificate and/or the Powerplant Certificate, students are qualified to take the applicable Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensure examination. For both certificate options, students must have a high school diploma or equivalent, pass the TEAS test and furnish their own hand tools. To obtain additional information and/or to acquire a certificate plan, students should contact the Technical Studies Division office.
