Aviation Maintenance Certification
The Aviation Maintenance Certification Program is designed to prepare qualified individuals to take the FAA written, oral, and practical exams. This two week course focuses on the subject matter required to obtain the ratings as an Airframe and Powerplant technician. The course is a combination of classroom and lab, conducted by dedicated and experienced instructors who will guide you through the test preparation and practical projects to ensure your success.
Basic qualification for the AMC course is 18 months working on aircraft for either airframe or powerplant rating, or 30 months combined. The FAA will determine your eligibility from your military experience or documented records. After meeting with the FAA inspector, bring the two original copies of FAA Form 8610-2 for class enrollment (They must have original signatures, copies not accepted). You may also qualify for the course if you have completed training and have a diploma from another FAA approved school.
The two week course runs Monday thru Friday with three days devoted to each subject: General, Airframe, and Powerplant. The written tests are taken at our CATS Testing center. There are several lab projects conducted in the classroom, and on the tenth day we cover the remaining major projects at our hangar. You will find that the experience you receive from this two week preparation will provide you with much more than you can imagine, as you pursue your dream of a career in aviation.
