Free Online Course in Aviation Maintenance Open to Public

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Worldwide Campus will offer a free, two-week online class focusing on aircraft maintenance, inspections, safe and efficient integration of daily operations and how to effectively manage global challenges facing the industry.

Scheduled to run from Feb. 26 to March 12, the Aviation Maintenance Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will be taught by Embry-Riddle faculty as well as experts from the aviation industry and is open to the public.

“As the industry changes and adapts to new environments, we have to educate ourselves on how to successfully navigate those challenges, to make the most out of potential opportunities,” said Dr. Bettina Mrusek, lead faculty for the Aviation Maintenance MOOC. “Our students will get a real-world look at the industry, from multiple perspectives. We are not only focused on the maintenance technician, but also on those supervising and leading them.”

In addition to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Aviation Maintenance offered through Embry-Riddle Worldwide, the university also offers a bachelor’s degree in Aviation Maintenance Science at its residential campus in Daytona Beach, Fla.
