Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Repair and Overhaul Technology Program
The Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Repair and Overhaul Technology program follows the Canadian Council for Aviation and Aerospace (CCAA) outline for the Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Repair and Overhaul Technician and is CCAA accredited.
As a precision machinist you could create something that would become an integral part of an airplane, car, piece of surgical equipment, or major industrial machine. Your knowledge of materials’ properties and the machines that can reshape and transform them is invaluable.
In this one-year program you’ll learn how to take a mechanical blueprint and physically produce the part it describes using lathes, drill presses, vices, micrometers, and milling machines.
When you graduate, you’ll be on the road to earning your Red Seal as a precision machinist.
If “close enough is good enough” are words that will never cross your lips, you could be a perfect fit for a career as a precision machinist. Talk to us today.
