FAA suspends certificate of Atlanta Technical College

The U.S.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued an emergency order revoking the maintenance technician school certificate of Atlanta Technical College (ATC) of Atlanta, Ga.

The FAA alleges that ATC failed to maintain approved grade, attendance, and make-up reports for students in numerous courses in its Aviation Maintenance Technology (AVMT) program.


Student grade records were either not maintained or incomplete and were not signed by instructors. Several students who had not made up absences were nevertheless allowed to move on to the next block of instruction, the FAA alleges.

ATC has not enrolled any students or conducted any classes in the AVMT program since May 2014, and the FAA rescinded its approved curriculum in June 2014. However, ATC has continued to administer exit examinations and issued certificates of completion to its former students when it knew it was not authorized to do so, the FAA alleges.

Additionally, ATC did not provide the FAA with requested copies of each certificate of completion and a detailed analysis of how students received certificates in the absence of an FAA-approved curriculum, the agency alleges.

ATC surrendered its certificate.
