Introduction of 2 Days Seminar  
The LTK FAA Airframe and Powerplant Test Seminar is a two days course.  It is specifically for those who will travel to the United States to seek authorization from an FAA Airworthiness Inspector and then test for the US FAA Mechanics Certificate.  This Seminar prepares you for meeting the FAA Inspector and successfuly passing the Authorization Interview.  
This seminar also provides experience with certain Practical Test subjects not normally encountered by mechanics working on Transport Category Air Carrier aircraft.    
The Seminar will be conducted by Richard Brown, a former US FAA Airworthiness Aviation Safety Inspector.  Richard Brown spent seven years with the Oakland Flight Standards District Office.  While there, he conducted over 80 A&P Test authorization interviews of Chinese mechanics
