NATA AMT awards

The NATA Aviation Maintenance Technician Employer Recognition Program awards aviation maintenance organizations that encourage and support aviation maintenance technician (AMT) training. The award is meant to complement the FAA’s Aviation Maintenance Technician Award, while providing a special recognition for employers that support training.

The NATA award is based on the percentage of AMTs employed, directly or indirectly, by a maintenance organization that participates in qualified training events. An AMT must complete at least 12 hours of training each year to be counted toward the organization’s award percentage. For more information, visit
