Aviation Maintenance Technology is a challenging career field with excellent employment opportunities. At ENMU-Roswell we offer:

  • Only FAA Part 147 A&P school in New Mexico
  • 14.5 month Certificate of Completion Program
  • Balanced Commercial and General Aviation Training Program
  • Boeing 727 Familiarization Training
  • Reasonable Tuition
  • Operational Aircraft
  • Hands-On Training
  • Cessna Approved Composite Training Certification

The Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program runs approximately fourteen and a half consecutive months, making this program one of fastest and most competitive in terms of completion time available. We believe that by training students and preparing them for FAA licensure in the shortest time frame possible, we provide a gateway to careers much sooner and in a more cost effective manner than other AMT training programs. Because of this schedule, please consult AMT faculty, academic advisors, or the Career and Technical Education Division concerning semester start dates. Completing courses in the sequence and schedule offered is critical to successful completion of the program.

Upon successful completion of the FAA FAR Part 147 program, students will be issued a certificate acknowledging the student’s eligibility for FAA testing. Students seeking an associate of applied science degree must also successfully complete additional general education classes. Applicants for an associate of applied science degree who are currently FAA Airframe & Powerplant certificate holders may apply their A&P certificate towards the AMT portion of the A.A.S. degree.

Please note that mandatory drug screening is required prior to the first week of the program and will be scheduled by the AMT faculty. Students must pass the mandatory drug screening in order to remain in the program.

After 27 years with United, and having received lifetime travel benefits, I decided to pursue the career long goal of returning to an aviation maintenance school to share my knowledge and experience with young people who shared my passion in aviation.

While my A&P license sufficed within the airline, I found it was tough on the outside without a degree. In order to work for my college, I needed an AS degree minimum. That’s where ENMU-Roswell comes in. The good folks at the school, took the time and effort to build a program, which benefits people like me who have an aircraft maintenance license, but lacked a degree. After one short year, I completed the requirements through distance learning. The classes were challenging and the instructors, caring. I had always felt a little less of myself for not having a degree, and now I am so very proud of what this school had done for me. I realized how incredibly lucky I was at 55 to have the opportunity to return to school. I even managed to graduate with honors.

Thanks to my degree, I have finally achieved my goal. A nice little community college in Alameda, CA. has entrusted me with the education of their students. They’ve got a great program, and I have enjoyed working there. Mission accomplished! I cannot express enough, my appreciation of what the field has done for me, and my family, and how proud am to be a graduate of ENMU-Roswell.

Gainful Employment

Meet ENMU-Roswell graduate, Steven D. Jordan, from Titusville, FL.  Steven is 28 years old, married with three children. He is employed as an Avionics Technician for United Airlines in Orlando, Florida and heard about our program from his FAA DME, Jeffery McCoy in Houston, Texas.

Prior to his current position, he worked for Continental Airlines and he served in Afghanistan on a U.S. Army base as an overseas civilian contractor. He has also worked as a civilian contractor and as an AD aircraft mechanic in the U.S. Navy.

Steven had his A&P and wanted to complete his Associate of Applied Science Degree. He was able to do this after one semester of taking online courses offered by ENMU-Roswell.

“I will continue my studies toward my Bachelor’s or a new career in the medical field as an RN,” said Steven. “I want to thank my wife for being the best wife and mother to my kids, my mom and wife for believing in me so much that I will achieve my goal to be an RN, my friend Lizzy for tutoring me and coaching me, and ENMU-R for providing me with a great education.”

Steven has a message to his fellow graduates: “You can achieve anything you want in life if you put your faith in Jesus and keep your mindset never to quit anything you start, stay motivated, and dedicated to crossing the finish line!”
