The professionalizing technical education deals with the challenge of training professionals for new professions, which entails the shaping of technical courses that have a demand for teachers with specific experiences. The Mechanics Technical Course on Aircraft Maintenance is an example of these cases. In the present study, an Instructional Material (IM) was developed, and its usage focused on teachers and students that were interested in the concepts of Circular Motion, Torque, Inertia Momentum, Angular Momentum, Gyroscopic Precession and Energy Conservation of the angular movement, based on David Ausubel’s theoretical reference. Such matters should have an approach in the course of these upcoming professionals, highlighting the need of promoting examples, exercises and practical activities of relevance and which represent the training demand of these students. The IM application took place in a professionalizing Technical Course of Instituto Federal de São Paulo (IFSP), São Carlos campus, where the researcher is also a teacher. The class is composed of second or third year students from high school that, at a different time, attend the complementary Professionalizing School. The assignment developed with the IM showed signs of good feedback along with the students, considering that the exercises held in the post-test reveal a significant increase of right answers.
