This program is designed to develop the knowledge and skills in maintenance of both large and small airplanes and helicopters.

It is Transport Canada approved to provide basic training towards an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer 'M' License.

Your time in the program is split between the study of aircraft maintenance theory and practical projects.

Upon graduation, if you attained Transport Canada approved training status, you will be granted nineteen (19) months of the forty-eight (48) months aviation maintenance experience and the three (3) technical examinations required to obtain your AME license.

After graduation, you will be required to gain on-the-job work experience for the balance of the 48-month Transport Canada requirement and write the CARs exam. Once you meet these requirements, you will be eligible for a Transport Canada 'M' license. You will receive a Transport Canada Approval number on your diploma.
