Hartford Aero Tech

Stratford School for Aviation Maintenance Technicians

Our programs run from September to June and all programs are completed in one year, except for our two-year HVAC program. If you want to return for a different technical pathway, you have to re-apply for another program for the following school year.

Application Process

Adult education students complete an application that includes a resume and GED or high school transcript. We accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, however all students must complete a 900-hour program starting at the end of August and finishing in June. Upon submitting an application, students will be contacted to schedule a day to shadow in their selected program and be interviewed.


As an adult education student, you will receive a certificate stating that you completed the 900-hour required program.


The tuition rate for the post-graduate programs at Bristol TEC is $2,000 per semester (2 semesters per year)  plus a $50.00 registration fee per academic year.
