Aircraft Maintenance Technology

The AS Degree and Diploma are accredited programs provided by Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology designed to teach students the technical skills required to become entry-level airframe and power-plant technicians or obtain employment in related professions.

The hybrid course is delivered partially through distance online education and partially on-ground. It is designed to enable individuals to take the distance education portion of the course for the first 13-16 months (depending on if they are in the diploma or degree program). Once that portion is completed the lab work (hands-on training) portion of the program is completed on site in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Successful completion qualifies the graduates to take the written, oral and practical tests with the Federal Aviation Administration for the Mechanic's Certificate with both Airframe and Powerplant Ratings. The skills and knowledge gained from the diploma program are applicable to other maintenance industries and professions as well as aviation. The knowledge gained through the additional general education courses in the associate degree program enhance the students' background and intellectual proficiency so they are more competitive in their chosen professions.

CTS works with Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology to develop and host the E-Learning platform for the distance education portion of Spartan's Aviation Maintenance Technology Program.

As the first of its kind approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, this program allows students to take classes part-time online. Students receive a fully-loaded laptop with the course materials, which will allow them to complete the curriculum, even when deployed in remote locations without consistent internet access for periods up to three weeks. The program leads to a Diploma in Aviation Maintenance Technology and/or Associate of Applied Science Aviation Technology Degree.

Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology recognizes as an industry leader with more than 25 years of experience developing computer based training, complex E-Learning and simulation programs for aviation and defense organizations.

Spartan has trained more than 90,000 technicians and pilots over the past 87 years, including military, customized, and traditional education programs.

Commenting, CEO Kevin Hogg, stated

"it has been an honor to develop such a unique and wonderful product with Spartan. Everybody involved has worked so hard to produce an experience, which will help many achieve their potential goals and dreams. In the process we truly have produced a world first which I believe is going to be in high demand."

Spartan's campus-based instructors are involved with the online courses but students will have the ability to do the work on their own time.
