Do you like working with your hands? Are you looking for an exciting career where you don't have to sit in an office all day? Would you rather work on jet engines with 120,000 pounds of thrust? Or are you interested in working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). If so, then our Aviation Maintenance Technology program is the place for you! Some of your questions can be answered by reading our FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions).

We have a long and rich history of producing Aviation Technicians. Our aviation program began in the 1930's as Edison Technical College and transformed into the SSC program in 1968. We provide the training and teach the skills necessary to become an Aircraft Maintenance Technician. After completing the two-year program our students are certified to take the FAA Airframe and Power plant(A&P) exams and then go on to work on any aircraft in the world. The A&P certificate is also recognized in other industries such as power companies and elevator mechanics.
