Avionics Electronic Technician

Avionics Electronic TechnicianThe Avionics Electronic Technician program is designed to develop in–depth knowledge of aircraft avionic systems, down to the component level. The program prepares students for careers as aircraft avionics technicians, aircraft electricians, aircraft avionics component repairmen, electrical/avionics installers, and flight line troubleshooters.

Students will build their skills by troubleshooting, removing and repairing faulty components, as well as practicing Federal Aviation Administration approved wiring techniques.

Successful completion of this program will allow the student to take the Federal Communications Commission’s GROL (General Radio Operators License) exam (elements 1, 3, and 8), which will enable them to legally repair aircraft avionics equipment. Graduates work on individual components, like radar and radios, or on entire avionic suites, as installed on a wide variety of aircraft, from widebody commercial airliners to helicopters.
