14-Month Program

Aviation Maintenance Technology



Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) is National Aviation Academy’s core Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) program. If you’re looking to enter the aviation maintenance industry FAST, this is your program! In as little as 14 months (and 2,000 clock hours), you’ll train on 45 FAA-mandated subjects. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has strict guidelines on the curriculum for AMT schools’ General, Powerplant, and Airframe courses.

Undoubtedly, this is a lot of information! However, our programs allow students to move through the curriculum with ease, starting from the basics to more advanced topics!


What are A&P Certifications?

Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certificates are issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to qualified aircraft maintenance technicians. They are what allows an individual to work on, maintain, and fix aircraft.

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.
