Only those who have proof of experience, which the college’s certificate provides, may take the exam. WCC is one of 170 FAA-certified Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools in the country.

“Upon passing the written exam, they will be able to take the oral and practical exams,” explained Aviation Systems Technology Instructor Mike Crumpler. “Once they successfully pass that experience, they will be issued a temporary Airframe certificate so that they may exercise their new privileges until their permanent cards arrive.”

WCC’s Aviation Systems Technology program provides the knowledge and skills for students to qualify for an aircraft mechanic’s certificate with airframe and/or powerplant ratings. It offers an Aviation Systems Technology Degree, Aviation Systems Technology Airframe Diploma, and Aviation Systems Technology Power Plant Diploma.
