Oklahoma CareerTech has chosen the SAE Institute/Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) Professional Certification Program to provide advanced credentials for its aviation maintenance students.
Oklahoma CareerTech will begin by implementing the SAE Institute/PAMA Aviation Maintenance Specialist/Aviation Maintenance Engineer Knowledge Assessments and certification exams. Aviation maintenance instructors at several of its schools will be the first to participate and non-FAA certified aviation maintenance students will be among the first directed toward aviation maintenance specialist certification.
Developed in adherence with industry consensus standards, the SAE Institute/PAMA Professional Certification initially offers two designations: Non-certified individuals can earn the Aviation Maintenance Specialist (AMS) certification; while FAA-certified Airframe and Powerplant mechanics can earn the Aviation Maintenance Engineer (AME) certification.
SAE Institute/PAMA’s Aviation Maintenance Fundamentals Certification Preparation and Technical Refresher Training Course are approved by the FAA for inspection authorization renewal and FAA Aviation Maintenance Technician Awards credit.
