We are pleased to announce that AIM Indianapolis (AMI) and AIM Chesapeake (AMN) are the recipients of the prestigious 2014 Diamond Award of Excellence from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Maintenance Technician Awards Program. This is the 11th award for AMI and AMN received their first award in 2007 and has earned numerous awards since then. The program began as a way for the FAA to encourage Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) and employers to participate aggressively in available initial and recurrent maintenance training. Through the AMT Awards Program, the FAA recognizes eligible Technicians and employers by issuing awards to those who receive or promote and foster initial and recurrent training.
“I am very proud of the education department for their dedication to ongoing training that they have to do for us to continue to earn this award,” said Andy Duncan, AMI Campus Executive Director. Brad Groom, AMN Campus Director for Education, added “This also helps with our accreditation body audits/inspections by showing ongoing technical training.”
In order to achieve the Diamond Award of Excellence, 100% of our eligible employees must receive an individual Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award in the FAA AMT Awards Program. To receive an individual AMT Award, a Technician must complete a minimum of 12 hours of training during the year, including a two hour course conducted through the FAA website. They are also required to log their training on the FAA website and claim their individual award within a specified time frame. The Diamond Award is the highest award granted by the FAA for aviation maintenance technicians and employers.
