Welcome to the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Readiness Assessment (AMERA) study guide! To ensure that you’re well prepared we want to give you an opportunity to review and practice the foundational math skills that are in the assessment taken prior to selection into the AME program. The basic math skills needed are as follows:

  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of decimals
  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions
  • Conversion of decimals to fractions and vice-versa
  • Rounding up of decimals
  • Conversions within the Metric system
  • Conversions from Imperial to the Metric System (conversion factors will be given)
  • Solving of basic word problems

The following information is links to practice sheets for many of the skills needed and you are encouraged to practice as much as possible.

  • Red River College’s Wiseguys’ videos is an online database of how to solve math questions on a wide range of subjects.
  • As you prepare to take the selection assessment, please review an online math readiness assessment sample.
  • In order to be given direct entry into the AME, a score of approximately 50% is needed in the math assessment. If you score lower than this, other options are available for you to consider prior to starting the AME program.
  • You can certainly find other information at /asc/student-success-skills/ where you can learn more about how to technical textbooks and how to study well.
  • As you are preparing for your program and planning your overall career as an AME, please take the following self-evaluation tool that considers many aspects of being an AME. This is a tool for your personal use. Please note if you answer “no” or “maybe” to any of these questions, it doesn’t mean you can’t begin the program. It is simply an opportunity to take some time to reflect before your program begins and you may want to contact the program coordinator to get more information.
