This program is designed to develop knowledge and skills in the maintenance of both large and small airplanes and helicopters.

It is Transport Canada approved to provide basic training towards an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer 'M' License.

Your time in the program is split between the study of aircraft maintenance, theory and practical projects.

Upon graduation, if you attained Transport Canada approved training status, you will receive a Red River College Polytechnic Diploma along with a corresponding Letter of Accreditation containing a Transport Canada number.  You will also be granted nineteen (19) months of the forty-eight (48) months aviation maintenance experience, and the three (3) technical examinations required to obtain your AME license.

After graduation, you will be required to gain on-the-job work experience for the balance of the 48-month Transport Canada requirement and write the Canadian Aviation Regulations exam. Once you meet these requirements you will be eligible for a Transport Canada AME “M” License.

This program has been accredited by the Canadian Forces for its Non-Commissioned Member Subsidized Education Plan. For further information visit: National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces.
