Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Courses in UK, USA, India. AME and LAME

September 5, 2019


Hello, my name is Ben Lovegrove and in this
video I’m going to list some of the options available to you if you aspire to be an Aircraft
Maintenance Engineer (AME). This is a follow up video to one I made last
October – Aircraft Engineer Salary – Salaries for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers – which
received a lot of views and comments. You can find a link to that video in the description
field below. It was clear from the response to it that
there is a need for clarification on this subject, so this video has been produced to
answer more questions. In a moment I will list the courses available
in various countries around the globe but first let’s summarise what we mean by Aircraft
Maintenance Engineer (AME) or Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME). Just as pilots and air traffic controllers
need to be licenced in order to operate safely so too do aviation engineers or technicians. The term engineer and technician mean the
same thing in the aviation industry. The technicians and engineers who service
aircraft carry out crucial tasks that must be of the highest standards so it follows
that they need to be trained by approved training organisations, and licensed by the national
aviation authority in the country in which they operate. Some of these licences are recognised globally
by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) but there are regional variations too. Here are some definitions of the licence types
and their requirements. These are specific to countries governed by
the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) so check with your national civil aviation
authority for any variations. A Ramp or Line Maintenance Certifying Mechanic
is someone with a Category A Licence obtained after a six month approved course and one
year of certified experience. This enables them to carry out minor maintenance
tasks and part replacements on operational aircraft between major servicing, and to certify
the work done. Candidates can also study in their own time
or choose a modular course, in which case they would need three years of certified experience
in order to qualify. Category A engineers can elect to specialise
in these subjects: A1 Fixed Wing Aircraft with Turbine Engines. A2 Fixed Wing Aircraft with Piston Engines. A3 Rotary Wing Helicopters with Turbine Engines. A4 Rotary Wing Helicopters with Piston Engines. To carry out more complex tasks, major overhauls
and re-fits you need be a licenced Base Maintenance Certifying Technician. For this you need a Category B licence which
can be obtained after a two year approved course and two years of certified experience. You can also obtain this through self study
or a modular course but you would need five years of certified experience to qualify. There are various specialisations for Category
B licences too, and these are: B1.1 Fixed Wing Aircraft with Turbine Engines. B1.2 Fixed
Wing Aircraft with Piston Engines. B1.3 Rotary Wing Helicopters with Turbine
Engines. B1.4 Rotary Wing Helicopters with Piston Engines. B2 Avionic Electronic systems fitted to all
aircraft. Here then are some approved training institutions
