Also i'm worried that if i am finding the course difficult in first year will i be totally lost by 2nd year if i make it that far.
Also maybe you could give me a straight awnser to this question cos everyone i ask gives me different answer --->I am really doing AVIONICS but the aircraft systems course and avionics have been combined does this mean i have to do three years now instead of the normal 2 year avionics course.
With the 2 or 3 year thing... You can leave after 2 years and you will get a higher cert (level 6) and if you hang on an extra year you'll get the ordinary degree (level 7) A few lads in my class got jobs in shannon aerospace and didn't come back for 3rd year. They got the level 6 higher cert.
As for the jar exams. I'd advise you to do them to A licence level. If you pass the house exmas, these shouldn't be too much extra strain. This is much easier than B1 and B2 level. I have them all to B1 level but I hope to get the EASA 66 B1.1 licence in just over a year.
2. for category B2 and subcategories B1.1 and B1.3:
(i) five years of practical maintenance experience on operating aircraft if the applicant has no previous relevant
technical training; or
(ii) three years of practical maintenance experience on operating aircraft and completion of training considered
relevant by the competent authority as a skilled worker, in a technical trade; or
(iii) two years of practical maintenance experience on operating aircraft and completion of a Part -147 approved
basic training course.
Above is a quote from part 66, so therefore the minimum you need is 2 years experience on operating aircraft.
Have you found out whether the IAA recougnise Carlow as an approved Part-147 Course. I understand Carlow has a 147 for doing exams but I would be sceptical that the course itself has approval.
If Carlows course is not approved then this leaves you in the first catagory i.e. you need 5 years practical experience.
66.A.30 1 part 3 states that I need one year of practical maintenance experience on operating aircraft and completion of a part-147 approved basic training course.
I have a fair chunk of that experience done already in a part 145 organisation and the course in Carlow is 147 approved.
As for company approval... Company approval can be obtained very quickly when there are only 4 people working in the company!
