Maintenance Repair and Overhaul in Aviation
3
The curriculum within this course provides an in-depth analysis of the requirements, policies, and procedures necessary for the operation of a Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) organization. Topics include; airline maintenance operations, engineering, and maintenance. Also included is the repair of structures, systems, and aircraft components. Furthermore, the curriculum explores MRO financing, domestic and off-shore operations, regulatory requirements, logistics, supply chain support, human resources and industry oversight.

Students will understand the challenges and complexities associated with operating a MRO organization. Students will develop an understanding of the logistics support needed to operate a MRO organization as well as industry rules and regulations regarding MRO operations and management. Students will realize the impact financial decisions have on the overall success of the organization and recognize the importance of quality maintenance practices.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:1. Explain the policies, practices, and procedures associated with operating a successful MRO organization.2. Interpret and apply the regulatory requirements of domestic and off- shore MRO operations.3. Determine costs associated with MRO operations and employ industry best practices for financial management.4. Assess the relationship between engineering and maintenance within a MRO organization.5. Evaluate the key concepts associated with aviation maintenance repair within an MRO organization.6. Evaluate the challenges associated with human resources management within a MRO organization and determine best possible solutions to meet those challenges.7. Compare and contrast the differences between aviation industry regulatory oversight and internal oversight functions.8. Defend the importance of integrating an effective safety program within a MRO organization.9. Determine management roles, functions and responsibilities within a MRO organization.10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
