General Aerospace Core Program  

9.0 Credits

Core classes listed below are not tied to specialty area dates. Upon successful completion, students choose a specialty.

Certificate in Basic Aviation Manufacturing, a critical and complex technical field of aviation manufacturing. The student will be introduced to valuable skills in aviation technology needed for a precision aerospace technologist. This certificate will provide a basic understanding of general aviation manufacturing procedures.

Topics covered include basic aircraft familiarization, sealing, electrical bond and ground, aircraft drawings and work instructions, assembly hand tools, precision measuring and aviation materials and processes. Other areas covered are aircraft cleaning and corrosion control. The certificate includes 9 modules of theory and practical application.
