Course summary

Based at our purpose-built Future Skills Centre, this full-time two-year programme provides the ideal progression path for students wishing to train as a Licenced Aircraft Engineer. We are able to offer the UK Civil Aviation Authority Part 66 category B1.1 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence syllabus as a Civil Aviation Authority Part 147 Approved Organisation. You will combine the practical hand skills training expected of an aircraft maintenance technician with classroom delivery covering all aspects of aircraft maintenance and repair taught by instructors with a wide range of experience in both civil and military aviation. The Part 66 syllabus runs alongside the Foundation Degree programme accredited by Kingston University, successful completion of which enables you to progress to complete a top-up bachelor’s degree at Kingston University which is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society, for which there is a one-year Full Time and a Part Time two-year option available. Students who pass the Part 66 exams are required to complete two years’ work experience in industry before they can be granted their CAA Engineer’s Licence, against the normal five-year experience requirement. This enables them to progress to certifying engineer positions within airlines and aircraft maintenance providers. Skills learnt on the course are also directly transferrable to other careers within aviation and to other industries. Modules (for guidance only):
