Preparation for Airframe and Powerplant Certification
Embry-Riddle’s FAA Part 147 certified Airframe and Powerplant curriculum is not offered as a standalone certificate. Rather, it is embedded within the Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Science degrees. The Airframe and Powerplant certification satisfies the requirements for the FAA Part 147 Federal Aviation Regulations, and also counts for credit towards the accredited Associate and Bachelor degrees in Aviation Maintenance. The A&P certification portion can be completed in as little as 16 months, or four semesters. This combines classroom theory with hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
You will get the training you need to qualify for the FAA A&P certificate. Embry-Riddle has our own FAA testing center on campus where you will take your FAA written exams. Two of our professors are FAA Designated Mechanic Examiners (DME’s) and they will administer your practical tests for the general, airframe and powerplant sections of the A&P. For those who would like to add to their experience, Embry-Riddle offers a minor course of study in Avionics Line Maintenance. This is open to Bachelor degree seeking students, and the pre-requisite is having your A&P certificate, or at least completing the A&P curriculum here at ERAU. If you do the Avionics Line Maintenance Minor, which is only one semester in length, you will add the FCC General Radio Telephone Operators License, and also the NCATT and AET certifications.
