AVIATION MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY (AM34)

The Aviation Maintenance Technology diploma program is intended to provide students with an introduction to the occupational area of aviation maintenance technology as currently understood and practiced by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mechanic certificate holders with airframe and/or power plant ratings. In addition, the combined power plant and airframe curriculum is designed to provide students with the technical knowledge and skills required to diagnose problems and repair aircraft power plants, both reciprocating and turbine, their systems and components; and airframes, both metal and wood, their systems and components. Satisfactory completion of all program courses entitles students to participate in FAA power plant and airframe examinations and certification processes. Central Georgia Technical College is a FAA Part 147 Certificated School.
