If you do not yet have the FAA-required experience, you can attend one of the many part 147 Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools nationwide. These schools offer training for one mechanic's certificate or both. Many schools offer avionics courses that cover electronics and instrumentation.

What does FAA certification of an aviation maintenance technician school mean? Certification indicates the school meets the requirements of part 147, subpart B, Certification Requirements, for the ratings issued. FAA certification does not necessarily mean universities will extend college credit nor does it indicate approval by other states or federal agencies.

Some schools offer a diploma and others may requires that you already have a high school diploma or a General Education Diploma (GED) to apply. The courses typically last from 12 month to 24 months, which is less than required by FAA for on-the-job training. After you graduate, you will be qualified to take the required FAA's written, oral, and practical exams.

According to the FAA, graduates often get higher starting salaries than individuals who got their required experience in one of the other two ways.
