At SSCC we train our student technicians in an industry-like setting
on our main campus and in a hangar facility at King County Airport

the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Our classes consist of

We recommend that students complete the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.)
degree along with both the Airframe and Powerplant certificates.
Having all three provides students with a greater employment opportunities
and the ability to take advantage of technical transfer agreements
