Profil


So, you've always had a fascination with helicopters, single-engine planes and jumbo jets, but now you want to be a part of one of mankind's greatest technological achievements and play an important role in the aviation industry? The Aviation Technician - Aircraft Maintenance program can help.

Accredited by Canada's federal licensing body, Transport Canada (TC), and the national aviation council, the Canadian Council for Aviation and Aerospace (CCAA), the offering will give you knowledge and skills to service, repair, overhaul and troubleshoot aircraft components and systems.

Why this program?

With more than 45 years teaching aircraft and avionics maintenance, Centennial's School of Transportation is, without question, the go-to institute if you’re serious about a career in the aviation industry. Your instructors will be some of the best in the business, with years of industry experience, extensive technical expertise, and a deep commitment to the program and to your success. They will be your guides as you work through the technical theory and your mentors as you work on real aircraft and components in onsite labs and hangar. 

Support for this program from the top players in the industry (your future employers) is overwhelming. In fact, aviation industry giant Bombardier named Centennial as its trainer of choice in the manufacturing and maintenance of its aerospace products. 

Because many of the program's partners and supporters are members of Centennial College's advisory committees and participate as guest speakers and panelists, the program is designed for your success. The wealth of knowledge and expertise they share with you first-hand will not only enhance your learning potential but will also give you valuable career direction insight. 

The diploma you'll earn is highly coveted in the industry, and as a graduate of this program, you'll be well positioned to work with top-tier employers.

What can I expect?

The Aviation Technician - Aircraft Maintenance program will provide you with an understanding of aircraft maintenance areas such as general aviation, business and corporate aviation, and charter and transport category aviation. 

Working in modern labs and an impressive aircraft hangar, you'll learn hands-on by working on both fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Your instructors will walk you through techniques as you work on components like airframes, engines, electrical and hydraulic systems, propellers, avionics equipment and aircraft instruments. You'll also learn the essential theory and base of knowledge that will serve as a launching pad for growing your career.  

Aviation Technician - Aircraft Maintenance is so robust it will also offer basic training required to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME – “M” rating). As a holder of an AME licence, you'll be qualified to certify (or release) aircraft for flight after the completion of maintenance, inspection, repair or modification. The importance of that responsibility cannot be understated. To that end, this program will be comprehensive and will require you to be dedicated and focused throughout the learning process.

What do I have when I’m done?

Accreditation

If you meet the accreditation standards of basic training required to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence, you'll be exempt from having to write the TC technical examinations and will be granted 18 months experience credit toward the issue of an AME “M” rated licence. You'll also be recognized as having met the basic training requirements for CCAA occupational trade certification as an aircraft maintenance technician (AMT).

The passing grade for all technical courses is 60 per cent. To be eligible for accreditation, you must meet the following mandatory grading, attendance and practical performance requirements in all technical courses:

  • 95 per cent attendance level (over the two-year program)
  • 70 per cent (B) grade in all technical courses
  • Successfully complete all mandatory practical tasks


Degree credit

As a graduate, you may be eligible to participate in articulated programs with select universities. These programs will allow you to receive a degree and academic credit for your work at Centennial College and apply that credit toward further study (e.g., Technology Management degree).

Program Highlights

  • As a graduate of the Aviation Technician – Aircraft Maintenance program, you may pursue a number of careers within the aviation industry working in a variety of roles with aircraft maintenance and manufacturing organizations, airlines, corporate/cargo/general aviation and flight training organizations as well as the Canadian Armed Forces and government.
  • The program is structured to run in seven-week blocks, allowing you to concentrate your studies on a set number of courses within that time frame. At the end of the training block you'll complete your final test(s), have a one-week break period and then move onto the next set of training courses.
  • If you don't meet any/all of the accreditation criteria, you may still be eligible to graduate from the program provided you successfully fulfil all requirements for graduation.
