Aircraft Mechanic Program

At this time, the NVOC Aircraft Mechanic program is accepting student candidates only to the Course Interest List. Please refer to the letter below for more information on when Aviation program enrollment will reopen.
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 §65.77; 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.
