Our Oral & Practical Course covers core competencies to enable you to successfully pass the Oral & Practical exam with the DME. During the ORAL portion of the test, the examiner will ask a series of oral questions. During the PRACTICAL portion of the test, the examiner will want you to demonstrate that you understand basic principles, practices and procedures in aircraft maintenance and repair. The completion of this course is one of the final steps in your journey to obtaining your A&P certificate!
