Industry led training

Mick Malone Head of Airworthiness at Aero Inspection Part 21 Design Shannon said ‘’We are delighted to be working with LIT and AAV Training on this exciting new Part 21 Design Technician Level 7 Special Purpose Award course.  We believe it will bring a good understanding of initial airworthiness and introduce students to the very interesting world of aircraft design and initial airworthiness. ‘’

Mick explains why he has developed this course, ‘’It’s a great option for those who want to develop their careers as design engineers, I wish this course was available when I was starting off as a design engineer, we are also aware that currently there is a skills shortage of engineers and technicians to work in EASA approved design and production organizations’  from design engineer to  more senior positions.

We are actively addressing this shortage by designing a course which will give our students the opportunity to develop the required knowledge and skills to confidently take up these positions.  It also offers more experienced personnel a deeper insight into Initial Airworthiness, in particular, the classification and approval of modifications and repairs”
