Do you know that you want a future career as a mechanic? Do you like the excitement associate with aircraft? If so, you may want to consider training to become an aircraft engine technician.
Aircraft engine technician training is a basic requirement for anyone who is employed to work on an aircraft. There are several hundred FAA technical schools that offer aircraft engine technician training around the country. Coursework in these trade schools typically lasts a little more than two years. Students are required to spend a certain number of hours in a classroom setting before becoming certified.
If you don't have the time or money to enroll in a certified technical school, it is possible to accumulate the required number of hours to become certified through on-the-job training. Certain certifications require eighteen months of work experience, while more advanced certifications take thirty months. The certification that allows you to become an instructor requires that you've been a certified technician for at least three years.
Another route to becoming a commercial aircraft engine technician is to get your work experience in the armed forces. Many of those who served in the armed forces and received aircraft engine technician training merely have to take a test to become certified, because they've satisfied the on-the-job-training requirements. If you were thinking about getting into this field, there is no time like the present.
