Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT)
Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) is National Aviation Academy’s core Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) program. It centers around our Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved Part 147 curriculum. If you are hands-on and want a career in aviation maintenance FAST, this is the program for you!
What are A&P Certifications, and How Do I Get Them?
An aircraft maintenance technician is an individual who holds an Airframe and/or Powerplant (A&P) certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Just like pilots, there are rules for certification and regulations which must be followed for the use of their license.
If you have ever wondered what it takes to be an A&P, a standard answer is one word: training. To earn your airframe and powerplant certifications, you must attend a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) school OR have at least 30 months of relevant civilian or military work experience supervised by a certified aviation mechanic.
How Long Does it Take?
NAA offers a 14-month path to certification, with Career Services assistance upon completion! Our FAA-approved training, constantly evolving training tools, and culture supports growth and excellence.
Over 14 months (and 2,000 clock hours), you’ll train on 45 FAA-mandated subjects. The subjects are divided into three sections; General, Airframe, and Powerplant. Completing this course makes you eligible to test for your A&P certifications!
Where Can I Work?
Once certified, you can work in various sectors of aviation. These include commercial, corporate, and general aviation. You could also work on helicopters, airships, or unmanned aerial vehicles. Manufacturing, aerospace, and other parallel industries are exciting options as well.
NAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technology program is an attractive option for A&P certification. It offers quality training in a short amount of time! Our training is a comprehensive yet fast-paced route to FAA exams, becoming certified, and moving into your career.
Benefits of Testing as You Go
Uniquely, through FAA-approval (14 CFR 65.77), qualified NAA students are eligible for early oral and practical testing. Early testing privilege means you can earn the required certifications as you move through and complete the AMT course. It also means you can enter the industry immediately upon completion of training and graduation. If you qualify, you do not have to wait until after graduation to take your A&P examinations and begin the interview process. You can start working in the field of aviation sooner, maximizing earning potential.
