A Word about FCC Certification: The FCC and FAA do not currently offer a "Avionics Technician License."  What the FCC does offer is the(GROL) "The General Radiotelephone Operators License."  This license is required by the FCC to fix radios, radars and transponders in modern aircraft.  The (GROL) also authorizes you to oversee unlicensed technicians as they perform radio and radar repair. You are not required to attend an Avionics Technical School to participate in the FCC examinations or to gain employment as an avionics technician.

NOTE: All those seeking the GROL must be a legal resident of United States or eligible to work in the United States.

The Avionics Maintenance Technician: "Aviation maintenance employers desire the “complete package” when interviewing prospective Airframe & Powerplant Mechanics.  Possessing the General Radiotelephone Operators License (GROL) with optional Radar Endorsement (RE) will make you that complete package"
