The next iteration of the aviation maintenance technician airman certification standard (ACS) is available for review and comment, download it here.
Member comment is due by Jan. 11.
An FAA and industry working group is working on the new standard for AMT knowledge and skill requirements. The ACS is fundamentally an enhanced version of the practical test standards (PTS), with the addition of knowledge and risk management elements for each subject area. The result is a comprehensive document that outlines what an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge and practical tests for a mechanic certificate.
See past member alerts on the ACS for more information about the document and its evolution.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
