Opening in 2011, PIA’s Hagerstown Branch Campus is now Maryland’s exclusive FAA certified Airframe & Powerplant training provider. Working in conjunction with the Hagerstown Airport Authority and by request of the Governor’s Workforce Investment Board, PIA instituted the aviation maintenance technician school to help serve the workforce needs of both Maryland and the rest of the nation.
The facility features modern classrooms, a student resource center with a computer lab and publications library, and specialized shop areas designed to offer the optimal training environment for the instruction of aircraft propulsion systems, electricity, sheet metal, hydraulics, instruments & controls, composite materials, non-destructive testing, welding, painting and more.
Located along the Hagerstown Regional Airport just south of the Mason Dixon line between Maryland and Pennsylvania, PIA’s Hagerstown Campus was recently (in 2014) recognized as a “School of Distinction” by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges. The campus will not be reviewed again until 2019.

As you prepare for your education, it’s important to know you’re not alone in navigating your financial plan.
Most students depend on a financial plan that incorporates multiple resources. Together, we’ll explore your eligibility for various financial aid programs, loans, grants and scholarships to help you figure out what’s best for your unique situation.
Here at PIA, we believe that a high-quality education should be delivered with transparency, including understanding how your investment measures with your earning potential. A stable financial plan should have no surprises, and that’s exactly what you can expect when you meet with the PIA Financial Aid Office.

Housing for Students
One of the most common questions I hear in Admissions is ‘Where am I going to live since you don’t have residence halls?’ or ‘Where is my son/daughter going to stay for school and is it safe?’ I remember when I went off to college it was fairly simple because I stayed in a residence hall, but I also remember it was awfully expensive and my parents and I had no control over who I lived with. While moving to school at PIA isn’t quite as simple as attending a school with a residence hall, you can work to set your sights on a place within your budget.
To make this search easier, PIA provides a list of properties that have been used by PIA students in the past as well as several new listings. This list is not a recommendation or guarantee by PIA. In addition, the Internet can also be a powerful tool when searching on one’s own. All arrangements are between the student and the property manager or owner. PIA IS NOT INVOLVED IN THESE AGREEMENTS IN ANY MANNER.
