is for individuals who meet the aviation experience requirement and have their sign-off, or can get their sign-off from the Federal Aviation Administration FSDO office. The sign-off is on a Form 8610-2. This form authorizes you to be administered the 3 computer written exams and the oral and practical Airframe and Powerplant tests. Without this form, no test will be given.
Our test prep program will prepare you for the three computer examinations: General, Airframe and Powerplant. This will include personal instruction, watching instructional videos and reviewing questions by taking practice exams.
Upon satisfactorily completing the three computer tests, you will be provided the A&P oral exam guide which contains examples of the questions you will be given on your oral exam. We will review the FARs for AMT, Type Certificate Data Sheets (TCDS), airworthiness directives (ADs), and complete a FAA Form 337. We will discuss your privileges and limitations per the FAR 65-81.
Now you are ready for the final step, your oral and practical examinations. The oral and practical for Airframe and Powerplant must last a minimum of 8 hours. A single rating for either th Airframe or Powerplant will take a minimum of 4 hours each. Taking the Airframe or Powerplant will also require taking the general test.
After passing your Airframe or Powerplant exam you will be issued a Temporary Airframe & Powerplant Mechanical Certificate from your A&P examiner. This temporary certificate is good for 120 days. This allows the paperwork to be routed to the FAA in Oklahoma City, OK, where it is processed and in turn they will send you your FAA Mechanic Certification.

For Non-U.S. citizens:
You must have a background check completed prior to coming to the United States. If you are currently in a country other than the United States, the FAA requests you go the the International Field Office (IFO) that is nearest to you to obtain your 8610.2 form, authorization to test. This will avoid delays. If you try to get authorization from the local FAA office, there is a possibility that you may not get signed off to test.
