Centennial College


About Program

If you think you have what it takes to build and repair complex electronic navigation, guidance and communications systems, or repair the instrumentation and flight controls of an aircraft, Centennial College's Aviation Technology - Avionics Maintenance&Management program can help. 

Why this program?

Accredited by Transport Canada (TC), the Aviation Technology - Avionics Maintenance & Management program is geared to the aircraft industry's needs, and the College's highly skilled faculty members and instructors are some of the best in the business. They bring with them years of industry experience and extensive technical expertise as well as a deep commitment to your success.

Beyond faculty support, aviation industry giant Bombardier named Centennial its trainer of choice in the manufacturing and maintenance of its aerospace products. External program partners and supporters are members of Centennial's advisory committees and participate as guest speakers and panelists, sharing their wealth of knowledge and expertise with students. That means you'll not only learn first-hand where your career can take you, but you'll also receive invaluable insight from those who have shaped the industry.

The combination of essential theoretical knowledge and the practical skills to apply that knowledge on real aircraft and aircraft systems, under the focused direction of industry-seasoned faculty and instructors, with industry support, will result in a 360-degree education.  

What can I expect?

By the time you graduate, you'll be fully prepared for work as a bench technician in avionics-approved shops at a variety of aviation organizations.

You'll learn the essential theory and broad base of knowledge for complex electronics and electrical systems related to the navigation, guidance, communications, instrumentation and flight controls of an aircraft. Working in labs, shops and a large aircraft hangar, you'll practice the tasks and skills associated with shop bench work, and the testing, troubleshooting, repair, removal and installation of electrical, electronic and instrumentation systems. This program will also give you the opportunity to obtain additional business and management skills related to and required by the industry at large.

An aircraft maintenance engineer is responsible for the certification of aircraft electrical and electronic systems after the completion of maintenance, inspection, repair or replacement. 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 will I have when I’m done?


You'll graduate with a coveted diploma from a highly respected college, with the required knowledge and skills needed for a career in organizations that will include general aviation, manufacturing, repair, overhaul and airlines.


With TC accreditation, the program will provide you with the basic training required to become a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer. If you meet accreditation standards, you'll be exempt from writing the TC technical examinations for issue of an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) Licence and will be granted 18 months experience credit toward the issue of an AME “E” rated licence. 

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 pathway programs with partnering institutions or articulated programs with select universities. These programs will allow you to receive degree and academic credit for your work at Centennial College and apply that credit toward further study (e.g., Technology Management degree).

Program Highlights
  • 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 on to the next set of training courses.
  • If you don't meet any/all of the accreditation criteria, you may be eligible to graduate from the program provided you successfully complete all the requirements for graduation.


  • Due to the technical nature of the curriculum, you must be able to read, write and comprehend the English language at a level exceeding basic conversational English.
  • Classes may run between the hours of 7:30 am to 8:30 pm.
