1.    In accordance with Federal Aviation Regulation Part 147, completing the
      aforementioned curriculum does not constitute approval to take the Federal
      Aviation Administration Airframe or Powerplant Mechanic written, oral, and
      practical license exams.  The FAA approved training director must review
      individual student enrollment, course records, and certification course
      testing results before considering each student for certification
      approval.  Students are required to meet Federal Aviation Regulations Part
      147 training requirements to be eligible for certification.  Students will
      be required to complete each certification course with a minimum grade of
      71 percent and pass pre-tests for General and Airframe with a minimum
      grade of 80 percent to be considered for the Federal Aviation
      Administration written tests.  To obtain FAA certification approval,
      students will be required to complete additional coursework.
