Our program is designed to get the A&P applicant prepared for the FAA three written tests, oral and practical test administered by a FAA Designated Maintenance Examiner (DME).
The A&P applicant must meet the FAA requirements under Part 65 to test. Then the applicant must have a FAA Form 8610-2 signed off by the FAA local Flight District Office giving the applicant authorization to test. Our test prep program will prepare the applicant to take three computer written examinations: General, Airframe and Powerplant and will include personal instruction, reviewing questions and taking practice exams.
Upon satisfactorily completing and passing the three computer tests, the applicant 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. The applicant will review items for the practical test.
Now the applicant is ready for the final step, the oral and practical examinations. The oral and practical for Airframe and Powerplant normally take around 8-10 hours. A single rating for either the Airframe or Powerplant will take less time. 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 until your plastic license arrives in the mail.

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.
