Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence (AME)

Looking for responsibility and growth in your future career? This program is recognized by Transport Canada and gives access to the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence.(AME)

This license, sought after by many companies, increases your job and career opportunities, as well as your income. Holding a license will enable you to certify that an aircraft and/or equipment is airworthy.

The AME (Aircraft Maintenance Engineer) license categories issued by Transport Canada are as follows:

  • Aircraft, helicopters: Category M
  • Avionics: Category E
  • Structure: Category S

Applicants for a Category M, E or S license must provide proof of appropriate training and relevant experience to a Transport Canada center.

Students enrolled in a DEC in Aircraft Maintenance Technology who achieve good academic results and have minimal absences from class will, under certain conditions, be granted a credit of 19 months towards the four years of experience required by Transport Canada to obtain an “M” category aircraft maintenance licence, and will no longer be required to take the technical exams administered by Transport Canada.

Graduate Testimony

 

Patrick Villeneuve-ThibertPatrick-Thibert-photo.jpg

Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Pratt & Whitney Canada

 

"Before going at ÉNA, I already had a passion for automobile mechanics and an interest in aviation. The school has prepared me very well for the job market. As part of my job, I am required to do dimensional and geometric inspection of various parts of aircraft engines. It's very important to be conscientious, rigourous and meticulous, because you don't want to risk playing with people's lives."

 

 

University and other formations
 

About 26% of aircraft maintenance graduates pursue University studies in fields such as Mechanical Engineering or Operations and Logistics Engineering.

Studies at ÉNA can be an important asset if you also want to do a training in a flight school.

Frédéric Leroux 

Airplane pilot – Jazz Aviation L.P.

Graduate in Aerospace Engineering in 2016

 

« I studied at ÉNA in parallel with my flying lessons. The School brought me strong technical knowledge while developping a great network of contacts and giving me access to the Aero-Club ÉNA which allowed me to accumulate time of flight. My training in Aerospace Engineering gave me the opportunity to know very well how an aircraft is designed and planned. Now I have a better understanding of the aircraft that I will fly following my internal training at Jazz.»
