Technical Courses The five technical courses take place in the classroom, with an instructor presenting core concepts and procedures, as well as leading course participants through reinforcing learning activities. These activities will range from discussions, to solving "what if" scenarios, to hands-on activities. After each course, learners will go online to go through practice scenarios for that course. These scenarios let learners play the role of a maintenance technician in a realistic and safe environment. They will make decisions to prioritize, diagnose, and repair problems, just as they would on the job.

The two non-technical courses are taught entirely online, allowing learners to take each course at their own convenience and at their own pace. After learning the new content in each course, students will go through a set of scenarios in which they evaluate the performance of maintenance technicians in realistic situations, then rate them on a set of criteria related to the learning points in the course. Each online course is approximately two-and-a-half hours in length. Online courses can be available via the HAA computer lab for students without access to a computer or high speed internet.
