This training program is designed to meet the needs of the aviation industry while developing local talent for jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics avionics technicians earn a median salary of $58,540 up to $87,570.
Training includes reviews and tests for two of the most important licenses of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and one-year membership in the Avionics Technician Association.

AVIONICS TECHNICIAN PROGRAM INTRODUCES SMT:

As our mission to keep our Avionics Technicians up to date on the latest in the field we developed our new UCF certified Surface Mount Technology (SMT) course which prepares you to work with and troubleshoot the electronics equipment down to component level located in the aircraft.

Surface Mount Technology is a method for producing electronic circuits in which the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device so made is called a surface-mount device (SMD).

The vast majority of commercial electronics are all about complex circuitry fitting in small spaces. To do this, components need to be directly mounted onto the circuit board rather than wired. This is essentially what surface mount technology is.

The Surface Mount Technology course will consist of 4 Fridays from 7 PM to 9 PM at a cost of $1,500. The SMT program is also UCF certified.
