Welcome to Spartan Online Learning

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Technology Management is designed for students who wish to be more competitive in their chosen aeronautical professions.
The Spartan College motto, “Knowledge and Skill Overcome Superstition and Luck,” is more than just a saying; it is the core belief upon which the curriculum at Spartan is built. The saying was adopted long ago by some of Spartan’s first graduates. They understood that relying on superstition and luck was not an option. They knew that the knowledge and skill gained at our aircraft mechanic school was imperative to their success. Learn more about the Black Cat Spartan symbol.
Since that time, Spartan has continued to build upon and enhance the curriculum in our aviation and avionics maintenance courses, providing students interested in air travel with a variety of degree options.
