Delta A&P Test

Wed May 08, 2019 7:14 pm

Hey guys. Has anyone taken these tests recently? Im testing here soon and was wondering if anyone had any advice. Ive been studying the spacial recognition stuff and the bennett questions. I spoke to someone and they said the troubleshooting is the hardest. They said something about boxes connected to each other and you have to trace to find the fault but also said it didnt make sense how they were connected. He failed. Ive gone through quite a bit of A/C schematics throughout my career and am pretty good with them but hearing that has me doubting now. Is it really that much more difficult? Thanks

Hi, I don’t know how are Delta test, but is You follow a safe way to do it as if You were actually providing maintenance: Form, looks, wear protection devices, ... And claim and use AMM FIM Schematics...You will pass.
Don’t know about the boxes but I Would check boxes and connections for conditions, (overheating indications, wire in bad states, connectors properly locked, connections check for pin status [is pin looked faulty but not evidently out of service, I would search in wm and check the line with a multimeter ] and boxes properly locked) and only will use WM or other manuals to check any failure. Just behave as You do normally when solving a failure,(with a ... inspector looking every thing you do, and do not stop till something is found all You are talked to. White paper in a board will help to show You don’t work by memory and write down all findings, Also try to be seen doing a list of tools that will be used and at the end check, by inventories, that all tools are with You...

Sorry, forget: Safety!!! Although it will be not a real circuit, ask for c/b or related c/b-s and ask for them to be pulled and signaled with your name, date and is space is available, your portable phone nbr. If it is a Power related system, ask for External Power cable to be removed and panel to be tagged. Also APU Master switch “do not start” and GPU switch also
It is good idea to ask if “airplane” is shocked and on safe condition (doors closed, flaps-Slats on, LG Safety Pins on....

... in case of “electric shock” on Log Book, take not risk and ask for involved boxes to be replace..

Every second , something come to mind, just write it down and make a resume after, it will help You to feel more confortable, because at the end, there are items You had checked some many times...

I took the test many years ago. The logic part did trip up a few people. I talked with one of the young guys in our shop about it. It sounds similar to the one I took years ago. I tried looking up examples on the internet but could not find any. Kind of hard to describe it with 20 years of memory fade.

I doubt the stuff Apprentice said would really help. If you get asked to test that means they like your resume. If you pass the test you do the interview. Unless you really rub the interviewer the wrong way you are in. The only other thing is the passing of the background check, if you have a poor driving record or any arrests that may show up on the check come clean on the interview. There is also a medical exam, but I've never heard of anybody failing that unless they fail the pee test. That test weeds out a lot of prospective AMT's. If you can't pass that one when you know you are going to have one, a random would get you real soon.
