How to get an FAA A&P license


From overseas by homestudy for AMTs with other licenses!
You must get "slips" from an FAA inspector first. Therefore you need a letter from your company that you need the license!
This is the approval to take exams when you are from overseas!
You can also book short courses (prep courses) for the FAA testing. In this case the school will organize all!
Examples from Florida are:
T Black Aviation - Clearwater, FL
AMT - Miami, FL
National Aviation Academy - Tampa, FL
For Homestudy only:
You buy A&P exam question books Airframe, Powerplant & General and learn the about 4000 exam question by heart an take the exams.
Having passed the exams you take the oral and practical exam. There is also a book about oral and practical exams for A&Ps. Amazon sells all!

Aircraft Mechanic Oral, Practical, & Written Tests

The Aviation Mechanic certificate has two ratings – the Airframe (A) and the Powerplant (P). If you decide to seek both ratings, this is commonly referred to as an "A&P Certificate".

You must be
at least 18 years old; and
able to read, write, speak, and understand English language.
You must have at least:
18 months of practical experience with the procedures, practices, materials, tools, machines, and equipment generally used in constructing, maintaining, or altering an airframe or powerplant, appropriate to the rating sought; or
30 months of practical experience concurrently performing the duties appropriate to both the airframe and powerplant ratings.
You may also be eligible:
by graduating from an FAA-approved Aviation Maintenance Technician School (AMTS) or
by completing the Joint Service Aviation Maintenance Technician Certification Council (JSAMTCC) training course for military personnel.

You should be familiar with Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 65, subpart D, Mechanics

.
You must pass the knowledge (written), oral, and practical tests. Additional information on knowledge testing.

There are three knowledge tests required to receive the Aviation Mechanic certificate with Airframe and/or Powerplant ratings. You must take the General knowledge test first, followed by the Airframe and/or Powerplant knowledge test(s).
Many of the AMT knowledge test questions are based on content from the AMT Handbooks:
AMT-General Handbook (Handbook) (PDF)
AMT-Airframe Handbook (Volume 1) (PDF), (Volume 2) (PDF)
MT-Powerplant Handbook (Volume 1) (PDF), (Volume 2) (PDF)


Details on AMT knowledge test subject areas may be found in 14 CFR part 147
, appendix B, C, and D.

You will be administered an oral test by a Designated Mechanic Examiner (DME) based on the Testing Standards.
