Aircraft Electronics Technician Certification

The National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies (NCATT) offers the Aircraft Electronics Technicians certification

Check out the April issue of Avionics News for "Part II: The Shop’s View of NCATT Certification and Hiring Technicians"

“The AET exam is a better measure of Knowledge becasue the candidate must actually know the material in order to pass the exam.” Clay Caessens , Blue Angel Aviation

In the interview he compares the AET exam with the FCC GROL “the FCC exam tests the ability to memorize answers to a govt test.” He only hires AET certified folks or has them test within their first 90 days

As I've said in other posts, certifications are earned by mastery of a body of knowledge and there is something to be said for completing an exam without receiving the question pool in advance.

I heard from NCATT that 520 AET certifications have been awarded to date.

I read on the NBAA site that the AET exam will be part of the AMTE certification. See Project bootstrap http://www.nbaa.org/prodev/bootstrap/
