A group of ENMU-Roswell students graduated Nov. 1 from the Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program. The 10 graduates completed the requirements for a Certificate of Achievement in Airframe and/or Powerplant in 14.5 months.

The ENMU-Roswell AMT program is a fully approved FAA part 147 maintenance school. Students may complete the Associate of Applied Science degree in 24 months or the certificate program for licensure in 18 months.

Students who already hold an Airframe and/or Powerplant license may transfer into the program and receive credit for those credentials.

The AMT program provides students with the necessary skills, knowledge and attitude required by the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR). After successful completion of the program, students are prepared to take the federal examinations necessary for obtaining airframe and powerplant mechanics ratings.

When ratings have been obtained, students are qualified for employment in the aircraft industry in a variety of positions, including maintenance technician, quality control inspector, and assistant to design, maintenance and production engineers.
