    What is Aircraft Maintenance Engineer

    To assure safety within the industry aircraft maintenance engineers are licenced in the same way as pilots and air traffic controllers. If suitably licenced under the regulation PART-66 & CAR 66 an engineer can certify the work that has been carried out on an aircraft and return it to service.

    Within the Aircraft Maintenance practice, several licence categories cover different levels and disciplines with multiple paths to achieve them.

    A Category B Licence is the one that covers more levels and disciplines within aircraft maintenance. It is achieved after graduation from a four years program. The program is composed of a two year approved course and two years of appropriate practical experience.

    Category B licences are divided into specialist skills such as Mechanical (B1) or Avionic (B2). The alternative path to get this licence is self-study, attending short courses and examinations (read more on the PART-66 & CAR 66 Examinations page). In this case, five years of appropriate practical experience are mandatory.

    How our Aircraft Maintenance Engineer programme is structured

    By working closely with our customers, we have been able to recognize that each person has different needs when studying. Consequently, we put together a training program that provides an overview of aircraft systems and maintenance processes. Our programme is composed of the approved courses necessary for licensed aircraft maintenance engineers.

    Programme duration

    Next-AT’s approved category B courses last for 80 training weeks plus annual leave of 5 weeks each year and public holidays (less than two years in all).

    Theoretical expericence

    The first 12 months of the course are common to all licence categories thus students do not need to decide on whether to follow Mechanical (B1) or Avionic (B2) licensing until the second year of the course.

    Practical experience

    Every year, we make agreements with our partners to allow students to undertake the 2 years of appropriate practical experience directly into the maintenance office of commercial reality.

    What our students think about the programme?

    We ask some of our students to share with us their motivations, background and experiences during the programme and why they decided to start a career as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.
