Avionics Training Program
Thank you for your interest in the MRTDL program. Enrollment in this program is now closed.
Short for aviation electronics, avionics is the field that involves the assembly, installation and maintenance of electronic systems on all types of aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft.
Avionics systems include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions. These can be as simple as a searchlight for a police helicopter or as complicated as the tactical system for an airborne early warning platform.
STLCC offers an accelerated practical, hands-on, non-credit course in avionics covering the following topics:
- Introduction to Aviation
- D.C. Theory, Series and Parallel Laws
- A.C. Theory, Series and Parallel Laws
- A.C. Circuits
- Blueprint and Schematic Reading
- Wire Identification, Fabrication and Installation
- Digital Theory, Logic Theory
- Radio Theory and Communications
- Avionics Systems Installation, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
- Fiber Optics Systems Installation, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting.
Classes were offered at St. Louis Community College's Florissant Valley Campus as an nine-week daytime program.
