There is No refunds given once the test prep program has begun. Allowances will be given to reschedule for a later date due to family emergencies, Job emergencies, and illness while attending the program, but you will have 3 months to complete the program, instead of two years. The idea is to get this completed now instead delaying it for another 12-24 months. The FAA states that once you take your first written test you have 2 years to get you’re A&P completed.

Any unexcused absences or more than two absences in a single week may result in removal from the program with No refunds given. Any off premise or home study during normal business hours without permission will be considered an absence and removal from the program with No refunds.

A&P Test Prep Guarantee

Our goal is to have you pass your FAA written and Oral and Practical tests the first time around. If you come short of passing your Oral and Practical test(s) with the Examiner you can schedule within 3 months to prepare again at No Charge.

You will be responsible for retesting fees for the written, and the Examiner's oral or practical exams.

Why is our program so much less?

We work with you to pass your written tests the first time you take them.  Other A&P and IA schools may add the price of a second test automatically to the price of their tuition.  That cost is an additional $500, which if you pass your tests the first time will go right into their pocket as added profit.  We only charge you for the first test you take and will charge you only if you do not pass and have to take a second test. .  Our goal is for you to pass your test the first time.
