The Avionics Technician Association (ATA) has partnered with University of Central Florida?s Division of Continuing Education to offer a three-month avionics technician training program starting January 2017. Graduates will be prepared to work in the aviation industry and meet an urgent need to equip aircraft with the technology necessary to comply with the latest Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements. "Anyone with a high school diploma can take this course and be ready to fill entry-level positions in the aviation sector upon graduation,? said Avionica founder and chief executive officer Israel Mercado, a 30 year veteran of the aviation industry. Mercado also added, ?It?s also very useful for experienced technicians or mechanics who want expand or renew their skills installing and troubleshooting the latest and most modern avionic equipment.?
