Atlanta Technical College Re-Certified to Restart Program

Tech College Opens Aviation Maintenance Cert with Assistance from Delta Air Lines

Atlanta Technical College will open its Aviation Maintenance Airframe Certificate Program in 2022, with applications accepted now.

The program will offer students a technical certificate of credit after 3 semesters of coursework. With a combination of aircraft airframe maintenance theory and practical application, the class offers students looking for a reliable, in-demand career track an affordable option. 

The dearth of aviation maintainers has been particularly noticeable in recent years, as demand remains undiminished with flagging graduate production. The school notes that career growth in the range of 11% is expected under current conditions, with annual salaries starting around $66,660. The job pathway is an opportunity for those in the region looking to "move the needle on economic mobility," and "serves as a reminder that the communities south of I-20 are worth our efforts and investment". 

The school has begun its program with assistance from Delta Airlines in the hopes of generating a proper pipeline for graduates to enter the career field easily. Managing director for "people development and culture", Josh McDermott, applauded the start of the program.

"Delta TechOps congratulates ATC on its hard work to achieve FAA recertification to offer the aviation program. Providing this curriculum not only enhances the opportunities available to students in our community, but also supports our efforts to present a compelling career path at Delta TechOps while students are in aviation programs."

Delta's assistance in the project was vital, with Ian Toppin, Dean of Industrial tech saying "the program would not have been recertified were it not for her commitment and personal involvement in every aspect of the recertification process. It was a difficult task, but our team was able to do our part because we knew we had her support. As such, we are grateful to have the program back and we are committed to sustaining it."
