Aviation Maintenance Technology (AVIAO.S.AAS)

68.0-72.0 Credit Hours

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science in Aviation Maintenance Technology and provides the knowledge and skills required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for certification as an aviation maintenance technician. The student receives training and knowledge for General Aviation Maintenance as well as Airframe and Powerplant Aviation Maintenance through options for either or both. The student, having completed this course work, would have the background and skills and would be eligible to test for FAA certification as an aviation maintenance technician. The student can either continue towards a bachelor's degree in aviation science (or related field) or can begin a career as an aviation maintenance technician specializing in airframe maintenance, powerplant maintenance, or as an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) maintenance technician (with the addition of the required FAA certifications).
