Aircraft operators and maintenance companies have identified an emerging need for the qualification of additional aircraft maintenance staff to meet future needs. Current demographics identify an ageing workforce and insufficient ‘new starts’. This situation could mean that the industry would have insufficient qualified staff to continue maintenance operation in the long run. It is therefore imperative that aircraft engineers are trained today to meet future demand of the airline industry.
The course is aimed to offer training to meet the theoretical knowledge requirements to become eligible together with practical experience in gaining the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance License which is a professional engineering license to practice, and confers upon its holder the privilege of certifying aircraft fit for service. Quite simply, without licensed engineers, the airline or maintenance companies could not legally operate.
On successful completion of the full modular course, learners will have achieved the theoretical knowledge for basic aircraft maintenance. They will be able to:
| Use a combination of engineering knowledge and understanding to improve the application of existing and emerging maintenance technology.
| Apply appropriate theoretical and practical methods to the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
| Provide technical and commercial leadership.
| Demonstrate effective interpersonal skills.
| Demonstrate a personal commitment to professional standards, recognizing obligations to society, the profession and the environment.
