Environmental Control Systems

Designed to partially fulfill the Airman Certification Standards requirements set out for an Aviation Mechanic career pathway for the Airframe Curriculum Subjects for Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools.


Federal Aviation Administration – Airman Certification Standards

This pathway equips learners with the training necessary to meet the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and become an Aviation Mechanic (AM). It offers three programs: General, Airframe, and Powerplant. The General program serves as a prerequisite for the other two and is recommended as the first step. It covers all the knowledge, skills, and risk mitigation elements outlined in the ACS’s general section. Upon completing this learning path, participants can pursue FAA mechanic or repairman certification through on-the-job experience or by finishing the required coursework at one of the 190 FAA-certificated aviation maintenance schools.

Program: Aviation Mechanic General

This program of courses equips learners for entry into the FAA mechanic pathway. Upon completion, they gain foundational knowledge in mathematics, aircraft drawings, weight and balance, aircraft materials, processes and tools, physics, electricity, inspection, ground operations, and FAA regulations governing maintenance technician certification and work.

This pathway provides training for several programs (High School, Associate and Bachelor) for robotics in advanced manufacturing.

Program: High School Track

This program of courses prepares high school students for the robotics pathway. Upon completion, learners will gain foundational knowledge applicable to work in mechatronics. Safety is paramount, with emphasis on both personal protective equipment (PPE) usage and the safe operation of essential tools. Learners will delve into hydraulics and pneumatics, covering safety protocols, governing scientific laws, and specific applications of these systems.


Hand and Power Tools

Hydraulics and Pneumatics


Program: Associate Track

This program of courses offers a foundation in robotic concepts and their industrial applications Learners will be able to grasp core principles, identify robot types, and explore power and movement systems, including motors and grippers. Learners will be able to delve into sensors enabling diverse manufacturing tasks, and then explore control systems, maintenance, and future trends. A case study on mobile robots and future scenarios opens doors to robotics technician careers. Additionally, the manufacturing course equips learners with the essentials of manufacturing engineering. It delves into terminology, metrics, material transformation, plant design, smart automation, and human-robot collaboration, providing a foundation for manufacturing.
