Interested in becoming a certified repair station?

The AEA now offers a week-long course divided into training modules designed for start-up repair stations as well as mature operations looking to improve their understanding of the regulations, performing internal audits and editing repair stations manuals.

Committed to enhancing the profitablity of members


Led by AEA President Mike Adamson, the day-to-day operations are managed by a full-time staff at the association’s international headquarters located in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.


Board of Directors

Elected by its members, the AEA is governed by a board of directors, which includes a diverse international mix of repair stations, manufacturers and distributors.
