The affordability of air travel has led to a significant growth in the air carrier industry, creating a huge demand for aircraft maintenance staff. Suitably qualified personnel, especially those allowed to certify aircraft worthiness, command high salaries and are highly sought after.
This programme is your passport to certifying aircraft worthiness as the diploma incorporates the European Aviation Safety Agency* (EASA) syllabus, preparing you for the EASA Part 66 Category B1-1 license examinations. You sit for the EASA license examination at the same time you pursue your diploma course at Nilai University, which is a validated EASA examination second site.
As part of the course, you will undergo guaranteed industrial attachment with our strong partners.
* The European Aviation Safety Agency is the centrepiece of the European Union’s strategy for aviation safety, promoting the highest common standards of safety and environmental protection in civil aviation. Visit www.easa.eu.int for more information.
