Our professionally taught courses help you get your certifications quickly
Did you know the USAF has an Airframe and Powerplant Program? The program also provides Certificate Of Eligibility
which is an alternative document to the 8610-2 also called “tickets”. Another benefit of taking the course is being
awarded college credits.
Aircraft maintenance technicians participating in the Air Force Airframe and Powerplant Certification Program are now
able to complete the General, Airframe, and Powerplant Air Force for the A&P Mechanic Specialized Courses through Air
The courses are part of the program requirements, after which graduates are eligible to test for the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) certification.
The courses are designed to bridge the gap between military and civilian aircraft maintenance training and education
and prepare military mechanics for the FAA A&P certification knowledge exams. The courses are available to technicians
serving in all branches of the military.
The voluntary program, offered by the Community College of the Air Force, provides certification opportunity for
technicians that traditionally do not meet FAA eligibility per Title 14, CFR Part 65.77 ( e.g. Avionics, E&E, or
Propulsion). It also helps technicians obtain FAA certification by providing training and experience in a broad range
of aircraft maintenance practices and skills.
The Air University Online courses feature a series of modules and unit review exercises, or progress exams. The
courses are online, so mechanics can complete the entire course process at the convenience of their home or work
computer. To learn more about the Air Force A&P Certification Program, visit www.au.af.mil/au/ccaf/certifications.asp.
