Catalog Description
This certificate is a skills building certificate in the field of Aviation Electronics and Avionics Technology. It builds upon the skills and knowledge of the general aviation and airframe programs of study. This certificate covers the theory,inspection, repair and the diagnosis of modern aircraft electrical/avionics systems. Emphasis placed on electrical wiring interface system (EWIS), communication, navigation and data transmission systems used on general and commercial aviation, drones, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This certificate content provides the knowledge to pass the NCATT (National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies) AET (Aircraft Electronics Technician) test and receive the AET certification. The NCATT curriculum is the recognized leading standard in this area. An FAA Airframe Certificate would serve in lieu of AMT 15-38C requirements for this certificate.
