  • Objectives
    In the Aviation Techniques - Aircraft Maintenance program, students develop the knowledge and skills required to equip themselves for work in the aircraft maintenance industry. Through a series of classroom-based courses and practical labs, students learn to repair and maintain electrical and mechanical systems within an aircraft - hydraulics, fuels, environmental systems, engines, surface controls and undercarriage systems, and the aircraft's frame and external skin. Aviation maintenance servicing practices and procedures, as well as aviation regulation requirements, are covered. Due to the recent increase in hiring within the airline industry, many organizations are reporting a shortage of qualified technicians. Graduates of the Aviation Technician - Aircraft Maintenance certificate program may find employment at an industry entry level as an aviation technician. Graduates of the program are also encouraged to continue their studies with an additional year at Centennial College in either the Aviation Technician - Avionics Maintenance program or the Aviation Technician - Aircraft Maintenance program. With this additional year of studies, graduates are eligible for an Ontario College Diploma, and may be eligible for accreditation through Centennial College, which provides an 18 month experience credit towards a Transport Canada Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) licence. This certificate program is offered in collaboration with Centennial College, allowing students to complete their first year at Algonquin College, and continue into second year at Centennial College. A block transfer agreement will provide seamless transition to learners.
