Prepare Quickly for Work in Alabama's Growing Aircraft Industry in Ozark

Ozark, Ala., -- A short-term certificate program in aircraft structures has been added to the curriculum of Enterprise-Ozark Community College's Aviation Campus at Ozark. 

Employers have been increasing their demand for employees with basic airframe repair and maintenance skills, which this program will address.  The short-term program's courses can be applied to the full program and are creditable toward the airframe and powerplant Federal Aviation Association (FAA) certification.  Completion of the full program as well as testing fulfills the FAA certificate requirements.

"Instead of completing the entire Airframe and Powerplant (A & P) Technology program, participants will enter the program, complete the five courses for the short-term certificate, and enter the field as aviation structures mechanics," says Tom Kirk, Director of Technical Education at EOCC. 

"With this training, participants will be able to begin working in the industry while at the same time working toward completion of their A & P certification.  This gives a student an opportunity to work in the field while he continues to learn."

Specifically, the short-term certificate will prepare participants to perform basic repair, service, and maintenance procedures on aircraft structures and components.  It will consist of 25 credit hours in the following courses: Technical Preparation, Basic Electricity, Materials and Processes, Non-metallic Structures and Welding, and Aircraft Sheet Metal Structures.

Additionally, this program is offered to accelerated high school students from Covington County, Andalusia City, and Opp City school systems who are eligible for early admission to college.  The courses are taught at the Andalusia-Opp Airport.

For more information about EOCC's aviation programs, contact Tom Kirk at (334) 774-5113.
