Aviation Maintenance Technology - Powerplant Certificate 8130, C.G.

A Certificate of Graduation

This curriculum prepares students for a career as an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT). FAA-certificated AMTs hold highly-transferable skills that can be used in a broad range of industries; including airlines, fixed-base operators, manufacturers, repair stations, aviation maintenance schools, and in business or general aviation.
