*If general education courses are required, they may be available at multiple locations.

Aviation maintenance technicians play an important role in keeping aircraft safe and ready to fly. This program prepares you for Federal Aviation Administration certification which allows a mechanic to inspect and maintain U.S.-registered civil aircraft. Through hands-on training you’ll learn to inspect, troubleshoot, repair, and maintain aircraft structure and aircraft engines. You’ll also learn the details of maintenance documentation, recordkeeping and certification, as well as how to read technical drawings and diagrams. This career field requires a high standard of integrity and ethics. Are you ready? (Transfer students, please see additional FAA information below.)
