Award of Excellence “Diamond Award”
2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016
The program began as a way for the FAA to encourage Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) and employers to aggressively participate in available initial and recurrent maintenance training. Through the AMT Awards Program, the FAA recognizes eligible Technicians and employers by issuing awards to those who receive or promote and foster initial and recurrent training. In order to achieve the Diamond Award of Excellence, 100% of our eligible employees must receive an individual Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award in the FAA AMT Awards Program. To receive an individual AMT Award, a Technician must complete a minimum of 12 hours of training during the year, including a two hour course conducted through the FAA website. They are also required to log their training on the FAA website and claim their individual award within a specified time frame. The Diamond Award is the highest award granted by the FAA for aviation maintenance technicians and employers.
