 Instructor Ethos

"I am an Aviation Maintenance Training Instructor. My pledge to provide these Marines and Sailors with professional training comes first. I will possess the ethos and ethics conducive of the teacher to scholar relationship. I will set the example, in any endeavor, in which these Marines and Sailors will follow. I will abide by the SOP at all costs and have the moral courage to do what is right. Training Instructors are on stage 24/7 for all to emulate. Understanding that these Marines and Sailors are learning and that it will take patience to instruct them is the virtue of professionalism that I will endure. Our legacy is the student, given the chance they too will endure as Marines and Sailors have always done. Before you, I swear this is true."
