Pt. 147, App. A 

(b) A school may not change its ap-

proved curriculum unless the change is 
approved in advance. 

[Amdt. 147–2, 35 FR 5534, Apr. 3, 1970, as 
amended by Amdt. 147–5, 57 FR 28960, June 
29, 1992] 

§ 147.38a

Quality of instruction. 

Each certificated aviation mainte-

nance technician school shall provide 
instruction of such quality that, of its 
graduates of a curriculum for each rat-
ing who apply for a mechanic certifi-
cate or additional rating within 60 days 
after they are graduated, the percent-
age of those passing the applicable 
FAA written tests on their first at-
tempt during any period of 24 calendar 
months is at least the percentage fig-
ured as follows: 

(a) For a school graduating fewer 

than 51 students during that period— 
the national passing norm minus the 
number 20. 

(b) For a school graduating at least 

51, but fewer than 201, students during 
that period—the national passing norm 
minus the number 15. 

(c) For a school graduating more 

than 200 students during that period— 
the national passing norm minus the 
number 10. 

As used in this section, ‘‘national pass-
ing norm’’ is the number representing 
the percentage of all graduates (of a 
curriculum for a particular rating) of 
all certificated aviation maintenance 
technician schools who apply for a me-
chanic certificate or additional rating 
within 60 days after they are graduated 
and pass the applicable FAA written 
tests on their first attempt during the 
period of 24 calendar months described 
in this section.

amended by Amdt. 147–3, 41 FR 47230, Oct. 28, 
1976] 

§ 147.39

Display of certificate. 

Each holder of an aviation mainte-

nance technician school certificate and 
ratings shall display them at a place in 
the school that is normally accessible 
to the public and is not obscured. The 
certificate must be available for in-
spection by the Administrator. 

§ 147.41

Change of location. 

The holder of an aviation mainte-

nance technician school certificate 
may not make any change in the 
school’s location unless the change is 
approved in advance. If the holder de-
sires to change the location he shall 
notify the Administrator, in writing, 
at least 30 days before the date the 
change is contemplated. If he changes 
its location without approval, the cer-
tificate is revoked. 

§ 147.43

Inspection. 

The Administrator may, at any time, 

inspect an aviation maintenance tech-
nician school to determine its compli-
ance with this part. Such an inspection 
is normally made once each six months 
to determine if the school continues to 
meet the requirements under which it 
was originally certificated. After such 
an inspection is made, the school is no-
tified, in writing, of any deficiencies 
found during the inspection. Other in-
formal inspections may be made from 
time to time. 

§ 147.45

Advertising. 

(a) A certificated aviation mainte-

nance technician school may not make 
any statement relating to itself that is 
false or is designed to mislead any per-
son considering enrollment therein. 

(b) Whenever an aviation mainte-

nance technician school indicates in 
advertising that it is a certificated 
school, it shall clearly distinguish be-
tween its approved courses and those 
that are not approved.
