Aviation Maintenance Technician School

50 years of FAA-approved training!

Our 8-quarter Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) curriculum consists of 2,247 hours of instruction in over 40 subject areas, with work being done on a variety of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. Students learn to maintain both reciprocating and turbine engines, repairing systems and components. 60% of the students learning time is spent in a laboratory environment. Degree programs are available for students who desire to combine their technical training with academic classes. After completing the two-year AMTS program, students are eligible to take the FAA Written and Oral & Practical exams. 


The 2016 Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook forecasts that between now and 2035 the aviation industry will need to supply more than 679,000 maintenance technicians.

We work in partnership with industry through our advisory committee, the government through the FAA, and other aviation programs throughout the country to continuously improve our programs.
