Aircraft Mechanic Program

The Aviation program consists of 45 subject areas presented in three separate classes. The course work consists of the technical classroom training and "hands-on" shop experience.  All three courses are required to prepare students for the FAA licensing examination in General Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics. 
Upon completion, graduates will have obtained the necessary experience and skill to qualify for a FAA mechanic certification exam (14 CFR ยง65.77; Experience requirements). An FAA-issued mechanic certificate with an Airframe rating (A), or a Powerplant rating (P), or both (A&P) ratings qualifies mechanics the privilege of performing certain inspections and repair on aircraft.
Candidates must score a minimum of 9.0 on Reading and 9.0 on Math to qualify for the course.
Please visit our Counseling Office to request an appointment for an assessment.
Students should be prepared to provide their own hand tools. Students sharing tools is not recommended and highly discouraged.

Part-time evening program courses meet M-Th; 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM
