Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Programs

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Student

An Aircraft Maintenance Technician ensures the airworthiness of an aircraft, whether it is a fixed-wing airplane or a helicopter. Aircraft Maintenance Technicians identify problems and repair and overhaul aircraft structural, mechanical and electrical systems.

Federal law requires aircraft to be certified before flight at regular intervals and after maintenance. Refer to the Transport Canada website for detailed license information.

We offer Aircraft Maintenance Technician in the Aerospace Centre of Excellence, located on the Dawson Creek Campus.



Basic Training 

Our two-year Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) program trains students to work in the aerospace industry. Graduates receive the full training component and 1.5 years of the four-year experience component required for an AMT licence, category M1 or M2. An Aircraft Maintenance Technician is also an Apprentice level trade. 

Type Training 

Field Maintenance courses for specific types of helicopter airframes and engines that are Transport Canada approved and meet the training required by regulation prior to exercising the privileges of the AME licence to certify maintenance completed on Canadian registered, turbine powered helicopters. Our Type training program has attracted students from around the world looking to upgrade their certification.
