The FAA has granted a petition for exemption, requested by AMC on behalf of aviation maintenance technician schools (AMTS) certificated under part 147. The exemption provides relief from curriculum requirements provided for in § 147.21 such that AMTS may provide students credit for time spent preparing for and competing in the competition.
The exemption allows faculty members to determine whether student time dedicated to preparing for and participating in the AMC satisfies the requirements of § 147.21; students may be credited up to 60 hours.
The exemption is available here.
