I was an aircraft mechanic technician working on the C5 Galaxy and when I went to the civilian side of aircraft mechanics and through AIM I was set up for success. After graduating from AIM I got a job with Delta! Thanks, AIM, the best training on earth!

★★★★★May 25, 2020

Before attending AIM I struggled to make ends meet, jumping from job to job, but finally decided to enroll at AIM and train and earn an A&P certification. Now, as a certified AMT, I am finally in a job I am happy with and an income that supports my dreams. "You got dreams, right? Get the A&P." "You got dreams, right? Get the A&P." I am an AIM Graduate in 18 months. I was in a Navy shortly after I was enrolled in AIM. Right now I am employed as a Lead Supervisor. Through AIM. After graduation I received job offer-after job offer. My time with AIM was life-changing and now I have money to fulfill my life dreams! Take charge of your life and get your A&P.

My name is Angel Youngblood and I showed up at AIM one day and spoke to admissions. Soon thereafter I was enrolled, training, and on my way to becoming an A&P Mechanic. At AIM, my instructors prepared us for a successful career, and as an AIM graduate I got a job offer from my first application submitted. I have my A&P and I have my career. If you put in the work, you will succeed through AIM.
