Learn about Everett Community College’s Aviation Maintenance Technician School and careers in aviation maintenance

EVERETT — Learn about Everett Community College’s Aviation Maintenance Technician School and careers in aviation maintenance at a free information session at 2:30 p.m. February 9.

The information session will be held at the school, 9711 32nd Place W., Building C-80, Paine Field, Everett.

EvCC’s Aviation Maintenance Technician School is one of only about 150 schools nationwide that train airframe and powerplant mechanics. In the eight-quarter, 2,040-hour program, students will learn about 45 subjects and work hands-on with a variety of fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

Students can prepare for a Federal Aviation Administration Airframe and Powerplant license, get a certificate in aviation technology or earn an associate of technical arts degree in aviation maintenance technology.

Demand for licensed airframe and powerplant mechanics is expected to grow over the next decade as older mechanics retire. The median hourly earnings of aircraft mechanics and service technicians are steadily increasing.

Prospective students can get started now by attending one of the monthly info sessions, which is required for admittance.
