Aviation Maintenance Technician Oral Practical Exam Guide

ISBN: 1619544105

Genre: Transportation

The oral and practical exams are the last steps for certification of an Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT). The AMT Oral & Practical Exam Guide by industry expert Dale Crane (edited by Raymond E. Thompson) will prepare the reader for the General, Airframe, and Powerplant exams. This book includes information on the certification process, typical projects and required skill levels, and practical knowledge requirements in a question-and-answer format, with references defined for further study. When taking an FAA Knowledge Exam, you merely verify your knowledge of facts--you interface with a computer and there is no personal involvement. The AMT oral and practical tests are different: you work one-on-one with an experienced mechanic evaluator who is able to not only judge your mechanical skills, but observe how you think and see the way you solve problems. The examiner determines whether or not you possess the knowledge and skill level needed as an entry-level technician, as defined by the FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS). The AMT Oral & Practical Exam Guide will help you prepare for this significant step towards your new career as an AMT.
