Advanced Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance (Avionics)
This programme is designed to equip learners with the necessary theoretical knowledge of aircraft maintenance and related electrical and avionics systems at technician level. This is also backed by practical experience in dedicated workshops. Learners attending this course will be prepared to sit for the relative examinations organised by awarding bodies, which may lead to being awarded the EASA Part-66 Category B2 licence. Subject to authorisation by the Part-145 Organization, the licence will permit the holder to issue Certificates of Release to Service following maintenance on electrical and avionics systems. This training programme includes work-related training and practice. Applicants have to be able to work within the industries concerned.
This course is a highly innovative program in the sector and gives the opportunity for the learner to obtain an advanced diploma apart from sitting for the EASA exams. Successful learners can then progress to the Level 5 Undergraduate Diploma in Foundations of Engineering which will allow them to have access to the IET BEng in Mechanical or Electronics.
