Aviation Maintenance Technology Certificate ( Airframe and Powerplant)

The Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) certificate program prepares students for careers in aircraft maintenance and repair. The program philosophy stresses a combination of knowledge, skills, and practical experience in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulations. Upon successful completion, a student will be prepared for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) oral, practical and written examinations. Once certificated by the FAA, a graduate is qualified to perform duties and responsibilities of an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanic.

Graduates can find employment with airport fixed base operations, charter air services, regional or major airlines, the military, aviation suppliers, manufacturers, and the FAA. Program graduates will be competent in the fundamentals of aircraft and engine electrical, electronic, hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical systems maintenance, application, and troubleshooting.

A grade of C or higher is required in all AMTP courses.
