Avotek-Online Releases New Airframe Fire Protection Systems Course

Avotek-Online has released Airframe Fire Protection Systems, an online course that introduces students to the systems responsible for small and large aircraft fire protection and extinguishing.

Because fire is one of the most dangerous threats to an aircraft, the potential fire zones of larger aircraft may be protected by fire protection and extinguishing systems. This program introduces the student to these systems as they may appear on both large and small aircraft. It examines several types of detection systems, the extinguishing agents commonly used, and the various delivery systems for these agents.

Airframe Fire Protection Systems runs for 44 minutes and is presented in two lessons:

  • Fire Detection Systems
  • Fire Extinguishing Systems

Airframe Fire Protection Systems is your next step toward state-of-the-art aviation maintenance training technology. Enroll in the course today!

Increase AMT student engagement with Avotek-Online’s new online course

Avotek-Online has released a new online course to cover the Aircraft Water and Waste Systems material now required by the ACS. This course complements Avotek’s recently released Aircraft Water and Waste Systems booklet and is the first offering in a group of courses that go in the Aircraft System Maintenance category/series on our Avotek-Online page.

This online experience is an excellent way to increase student engagement and learning by having students complete the theory portion of the subject area at home but have their questions answered and work on the skills and problem solving during in-person class time. Often referred to as “flipping the classroom,” this technique can be a very effective way to present AMT material.

Avotek is happy to announce a new category of online learning products. Introduction to Aircraft Maintenance is a series of online courses that cover the General section of the Mechanic exam. These courses are designed as a companion to either the Avotek or the FAA textbook series.

The material has been carefully extracted and presents the most important information associated with each subject area.

Avotek-Online Helps AMT Schools Who Want to Offer Online Classes

Avotek is doing its part to help schools through this change in direction for instruction. Last year we launched Avotek-Online and went live with 20 courses to help you present AMT material to your students. Based on the latest ATEC survey, nearly three out of four AMT schools are working to move toward online learning wherever possible and we are happy to offer some relief.

These courses are available in different combinations to suit your needs. You may purchase access to each subject individually, according to the subject area in Part 147 you are presenting. This option gives you the flexibility to match the material to your curriculum. These single subject courses can be used as the foundation for instruction or can meet FAA requirements for making available material that has been missed. The flexibility is yours. For those of you preparing students (or maybe yourself) for the AET exam, the Fundamentals of Aircraft Electronics course is available in two large packages.
