Maintenance Management Concentration 2014-2015 Program Educational Objectives Analysis The Maintenance Management concentration will maintain its FAR Part 147 approval status. We currently maintain our FAA Part 147 certification Successful FAA FSDO status and as such will not make any changes. inspection of facilities and records without deficiencies. We have no planned changes as we are meeting this goal. We will continue to work with the FAA in the event they bring forth any concerns. 2. Students will meet or exceed the national norm for each of the curriculum areas of the 147 exam. We have recently changed the software we allow the students to use to practice for the FAA written exams. The software that was replaced was old and many of the questions/answer were somewhat outdated. We felt this might have been leading to some students performing at a lower level on the written tests than they should have been. We will compare our students’ performance on the A&P written exams to the national norms for the testing as reported by the FAA. We will continue to monitor the Powerplant section of the A&P test with the hope that our student performance will improve. It is felt much of their issues were attributed to the older software they were using to study. 3. Graduating students will obtain FAA Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certification. We implemented a capstone course, AERO 4340, which requires each graduate to complete their oral and practical exams for their airframe and powerplant licenses prior to graduation. We will compare the list of graduating Maintenance Management students with the list of those who have qualified for the A+P certification. The only thing we can really do is monitor the progress of our students to help ensure they are in a position to complete their A+P certifications.
