Aircraft Maintenance Technology (AMT) is a highly specialized course that provides not only in theoretical aspects but also in practical side. Published studies have suggested that programs like AMT, which is anchored on the technical aspect of education, requires a great robust of the instructors by providing them an adequate, relevant and updated trainings to substantiate the theoretical knowledge with practical application of the students thus, making instructors competent.This study aimed to evaluate the level of competency of technical instructors in Aircraft Maintenance Technology in selected universities and colleges in terms of Classroom Management,Faculty Qualification and Experience, Mastery of the Subject Taught, Method and Strategy used in Teaching Instructional Methodologies, Research and Extension Projects. The investigation was basically a descriptive-normative survey method. Among the respondents were technical faculty members in selected colleges and universities. This includes 15 School Admin./ Program Coordinator and 120 Faculty. As a general result, it can be assessed that faculty members were competent across aforementioned variables thus, no significant difference exists. On the other hand, all the variables signify a significant relationship except to methods and strategy used in teaching instructional methodologies. With this, utilization of the proposed strategic modelis highly recommended to be conducted by the Deans and Chairpersons of AMT Department geared toward upgrading them the knowledge of new contents in the curriculum and familiarizing them with the state of the art in Aircraft Maintenance Technology pedagogy as well in the area of research and extension as it is deemed suitable, acceptable and feasible.
