To meet the aerospace industry's demand for well-trained, certificated aircraft mechanics, the college offers an Aviation Maintenance Technician Associate Degree, an Airframe Maintenance Technician Certificate, and an Aircraft Power plant Technician Certificate. Upon qualifying by written, oral, and practical examination, students are issued Federal Aviation Administration licenses.

Note: Aviation Maintenance Technician Classes 1-24 must be completed with a grade of C or better.

Note: The Aircraft Maintenance Program is a continuing program with classes starting every 9 weeks with a full-time year round schedules.

Credit for FAA Licenses

A student can be awarded 30 units of credit toward the AS degree if he or she has a FAA Airframe license.

Similarly, a student can be allowed 30 units of a credit toward the AS degree if he or she has a FAA Power plant license.

If a student has both licenses, a total of 60 units can be allowed toward the AS degree. To be awarded an AS degree, the student also must complete all general education requirements.
