Hands-on training involves active participation rather than theory. It shows that an individual understands a concept and can perform the real-world application of a theoretical practice. At National Aviation Academy (NAA), our aviation maintenance curriculum pairs with hands-on training so that students are able to harness the skills necessary to excel in the field. On December 1, 3rd term students began one of many projects that they will complete before graduating. Watching students with little to no experience evolve into professionals, over the course of just fourteen months, is what it’s all about!
