A second group of students has completed the Aviation Maintenance Technology programme at Cape Cod Community College (CCCC).

17 graduates qualified for FAA Certification testing. One had already passed full FAA certification, while on completion of the programme others were preparing to begin work in the aviation industry and some were enrolling for further study to complete their Associate in Applied Science Degree in Aviation Maintenance at CCCC.

Individual awards were presented for special accomplishments, including a US$1500 ‘tool scholarship’ – an anonymous donor has pledged this scholarship to every graduate who earns their full FAA certification.

Four members of the class which showed outstanding academic performance were welcomed into CCCC’s chapter of the International Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa: Christian Antoine of Harwichport, MA; Sean Crimmins of Dennisport, MA; Melissa Damon of Plymouth, MA, and Christopher Wendt of Forestdale, MA.

In December 2017, CCCC announced that students from Bristol Community College can enter its Aviation Maintenance Technology programme.
