INDIANAPOLIS, IN (02/12/15) – Aviation Institute of Maintenance’s (AIM) Indianapolis campus is the proud recipient of the prestigious 2014 Diamond Award of Excellence from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Maintenance Technician Awards Program. This marks 11th consecutive year that AIM Indianapolis has received this award.
The program began as a way for the FAA to encourage Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) and employers to participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent maintenance training. Through the AMT Awards Program, the FAA recognizes eligible Technicians and employers by issuing awards to those who receive or promote and foster initial and recurrent training.
“I am very proud of the education department for their dedication to ongoing training that they have to do for us to continue to earn this award,” says Andy Duncan, Campus Executive Director.
In order to achieve the Diamond Award of Excellence, 100% of the campus’s Airframe & Powerplant Mechanics instructors must receive an individual Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award in the FAA AMT Awards Program. To receive an individual AMT Award, a Technician must complete a minimum of 12 hours of training during the year, including a two hour course conducted through the FAA website. The instructors are also required to log their training on the FAA website and claim their individual award within a specified time frame. The Diamond Award is the highest award granted by the FAA for aviation maintenance technicians and their employers.
