Aviation Maintenance Science Airframe

The minor in Aviation Maintenance Science Airframe will lead to a student being qualified for FAA testing, and upon passing the required exams, becoming an FAA-certified mechanic with the airframe rating. The minor requires 12 credit hours of general AMS coursework plus 18 credit hours of airframe-specific AMS coursework. In order to receive this minor, a minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved in the AMS general courses and also a minimum of 2.0 in the AMS airframe courses. For a transfer student, at least 50% of the courses required for this minor must be taken at Embry-Riddle. For a student who has completed the Aviation Maintenance Science Powerplant minor, or has the FAA Mechanic’s Certificate with powerplant rating, only the 18 credits of airframe-specific courses will be needed to complete this minor.
