EvCC's Aviation Maintenance Technician School is one of only about 150 schools nationwide that train airframe and powerplant mechanics. In the eight-quarter, 2,040-hour program, you'll learn about 45 subjects and work hands-on with a variety of fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

You can prepare for your Federal Aviation Administration Airframe and Powerplant license, get a certificate in Aviation Technology or earn an associate of technical arts (ATA) degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology.

Demand for licensed airframe and powerplant mechanics is expected to grow over the next decade, as older mechanics retire. The median hourly earnings of aircraft mechanics and service technicians are steadily increasing.
