Potential employment opportunities include maintenance and repair facilities, corporate or airline maintenance operations, and similar aviation fields.

And that demand includes not only those with A & P training, but also graduates educated in aviation management.

The 60-credit hour A.S. degree curriculum includes 33 hours of articulated credit for for those students who hold active FAA Mechanic Certification with Airframe and PowerPlant Ratings OR who provide a certificate of completion of Aircraft Airframe Mechanics and Aircraft PowerPlant Mechanics from an FAA-approved certificate program in good standing.
