Over the past year we've conducted surveys and spoken with many of our members to determine what benefits and offerings are most important to them. Overwhelmingly, the No. 1 reason people join AMTSociety is access to either the Online Inspection Authorization (IA) Refresher Training course or to attend the Live Education/IA Refresher Events held around the country.
Any individual can register to become an AMTSociety member for free. Just sign-up it's that easy!
The new program will then include a menu of paid or free offerings such as:
- AMTSociety Web-based IA Refresher Training - $49.00
- AMTSociety LIVE Education/IA Refresher Events - $111.00
- Aircraft Maintenance Technology (AMT Magazine) subscription . Free digital edition to anyone and Free print edition to qualified subscribers.
Once registered as a user you can then purchase one of the training offerings. If you are already a registered member, just sign in using your username and password.
You will see no increased cost when you consider the price of the previous $49.00 annual membership dues. For example, the online/web-based training was a free benefit as part of the $49.00 membership cost. With the free membership structure the online training can be purchased for $49.00. No difference in price.
Similar to this, the price for 2014/2015 series LIVE training events was $62.00 for current members, or $111.00 for non-members which included a one year membership. Under the new free membership program the cost of attending one of the live training events will be $111.00. Again there is no difference in overall price.
During the transition to this new program we anticipate there will be a few individuals who recently renewed their membership or joined with the intention of taking the online or live training events. You will not be charged twice. If you are one of these few people please contact us.
As stated earlier, the vast majority of prior and current members join for the IA refresher training we offer. This new program will provide us the ability to focus on providing this type of training and to better place our efforts behind supporting already existing industry initiatives.
