7 Simple Secrets to Totally Rocking Your Aviation Maintenance Training
The fact that you are training in aviation maintenance should actually already be filling you with confidence and granting you the audacity to hold your head high wherever you go. Many envy the opportunity you have. Not because of the name (of course Aviation Maintenance alone is a huge draw), but because they know what you stand to achieve as soon as you are out of college and into the field; a satisfying job with a lot of room for growth, not to mention a nice pay check.
So, why not start enjoying Aviation Maintenance while in training? The following are 7 tips on how.
Identify areas you enjoy
Of course you love aviation maintenance, but which parts of the course do you enjoy the most? Is it the propellers and the rotary system or are you more into flight control? If you have these one or two areas you really adore, you’ll find yourself doing everything you can to perform well in them. You’ll buy textbooks without being pushed around and will always complete your assignments in time.
Being an adult comes with making decisions and that‘s where many fall short. Suddenly you want to go out on the night to an examination, or you’re considering missing a class just because you think it’s not “too” important. You picked aviation maintenance; it’s now or never. Join study groups, share and learn from others. You may never get another opportunity like this.
Level up your social life
You go to college to learn and part of that is learning how to live with others. How things went in high school stops to matter. Here you meet everyone, albeit within your age group. Take a break from the normal routines and watch a movie or board a bus and hang out downtown for a while. One thing you should know is that your brain is like a muscle, it needs a break once in a while.
If you are not going to get time for a 30-minute walk while in college, you may as well count out exercising again in your lifetime. Plan out how you are going to exercise, whether you’ll be going to the gym, at what time and for how long. See if you participate in a sport, there are plenty to choose from.
It is normal for your eating habits to be affected as soon as you join school. But that should never stop you from having a good meal every time you get down to eat. Always ensure that your diets are balanced, with enough veggies and fruits, whole grains and plenty of proteins.
Get enough sleep
College can be demanding with plenty to worry about. But you still need quality sleep to enable your mind to refocus, rebalance and recharge. This can mean creating time for a quick nap, trying to go to bed early or sticking to a healthy sleeping schedule.
Get some perspective
So much is expected of you and you can only live with the expectation if you’re always thinking a step ahead. You want to hang out with friends, explore off campus, and join clubs and so much more. But you need to remember why you are in training: academics. The excitement only gets to a climax when you pass your classes.
You’ll learn a lot in training, things that will play a huge role in shaping your future. You should make the most of your time there.
