Aviation Maintenance

The Aviation Maintenance program provides students with the technical training and skills to succeed in the aviation maintenance career field. Our industry is a high-growth industry with global employment opportunities in companies that support general aviation, corporate flight departments, commercial carriers, even the offshore oil and gas industry. After completing our training programs the student is prepared to take the Federal Aviation Administration licensing examinations. Upon completion of the examinamtions the graduates will be qualified for employment as aviation maintenance technicians.  

The Aviation Maintenance programs start classes each fall semester and, depending on the program, run from 3 to 6 semesters. These are selective programs with limited seats. Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2017 semester and acceptance decisions will begin April 10th, 2017. Any remaining class seats after that will be granted on a first come first serve basis.

Our programs are offered as full-time programs and typically run from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday.

Application can be submitted online or via a printed application available from the department contact listed at the bottom of the page.

The Aviation Maintenance program at BRCC offers the following programs;

To be eligible for admission to the Aviation Maintenance training programs (except the preparation course and licensing exams), the applicant must first be admitted to Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC). The application and all supporting documents must be received by the designated deadlines. Applicants will not be considered for admittance to the Aviation Maintenance Program until all required documents have been submitted and the applicant’s admissions file is complete. The copy of all supporting documents should be retained by the applicant as the College will not return supporting documents. After completing the application for admissions to BRCC a student can then apply to the program. It is important to note that although you receive a letter from BRCC saying you were accepted to the College this DOES NOT mean you have been accepted to the program. A separate application to the program must be submitted through the application links on the program pages. After a review of your application and entrance requirements you may be contacted to interview and conduct a site visit.

Currently applications are being accepted for the Fall 2017 semester. Initial acceptance decision will be made beginning April 10th. Applications received after that date will be evaluated individually, as they are received to fill the remaining seats.

Airframe and Powerplant ratings

The Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic CTS's allow the student the opportunity to earn a single rating, or to add to their existing mechanic's license. Each CTS takes 3 semesters and upon completion qualifies the student to sit for the written, oral, and practical licensing examinations. Adding a rating will only take 2 semesters since the general maintenance courses in the first semester do not have to be repeated. 

Aviation Maintenance Technician - AAS

The Aviation Maintenance Technician Associate of Applied Science (AAS) is an accredited degree program which combines the the Airframe and Powerplant technical training into a continuous program, and when combined with the general education required courses entitles the student to the AAS degree. With more and more employers seeking degreed employees for supervisory positions this program will give you the jump start on your career.

A&P Preparation

We also offer an A&P preparation course. This course is offered periodically throughout the year, but can be individually offered. For more information please contact the Aviation Department Chair.
