Prepares the student for employment in the aviation industry. This program DOES NOT meet the FAA minimum requirements for the Airframe or Powerplant rating. This is also an ideal program for students who already have their Mechanic's Certificate but wish to obtain a degree.

Miramar College maintains a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 147 approved Aviation Maintenance Technician Program that leads to an FAA Mechanic's Certificate with an Airframe and Powerplant Rating. This program is structured to allow the student majoring in Airframe and Powerplant to complete 1900 hours of instruction in five semesters in order to qualify for this rating. Students completing the Airframe and Powerplant Program will be qualified to take the examinations given by the FAA. To obtain a Mechanic's Certificate with an Airframe and Powerplant Rating, arrangements are made with the local FAA District Office to take the appropriate written examinations, followed by the appropriate oral/practical examinations. Additionally, students pursuing an interest in Aviation Maintenance Technology not resulting in an FAA rating may receive a Certificate of Achievement or an Associate in Science Degree in Aviation General Studies or Pilot Studies. CREDIT FOR AVIATION MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN-AIRFRAME AND POWERPLANT RATING: Pending Aviation Department review and approval, students who hold a valid FAA Mechanic's Certificate with an Airframe and/or Powerplant Rating may apply to the Aviation Maintenance Technology Department for a maximum of 35 units to be accepted as transfer credit toward the degree or certificate. CREDIT FOR NON-FAA CERTIFIED AVIATION TRAINING or WORK EXPERIENCE: Students may challenge a maximum of 15 units (see Challenge Procedure).
