Become a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and/or Technician

Mid-East Aviation Academy (MAA) offers two approved part 66 programmes in Aviation Maintenance Engineering Technology; Aeroplane Turbine B1.1 & Avionics B2.

Those programs were established to meet the needs of individuals to be qualified in the area of Aircrafts maintenance based on European Aviation Safety Agency "EASA Parts 147& 66" and are licensed by Jordan Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (JCARC).

Each Programme is offered on a full-time semester basis and last for two and half years.

To become fully licensed by the JCARC, you will need a further two years of work experience after the successful completion of the basic syllabus. Without the Certificate of Recognition B1.1 and/or B2 issued by MAA, students would normally require five years of experience before being eligible for a license.

Career prospects

MAA graduates will enjoy a high employability rate. Their career path is tailored towards becoming Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers.

They may also work with airline engineering departments or support aircraft maintenance organisations. While working in the industry,

Due to their generic content, these training programmes will prepare trainees for many other engineering and technical disciplines and careers.

JCAR/EASA Part 66 Short Modular Courses

MAA offers a flexible, short, modular programme that provides the theoretical knowledge and prepare the trainees to JCARC and/or EASA approved Part 66 examinations required for the full Part 66 license, for those seeking licensing through the ‘Self-improver’ route.

This may be studied as a complete full time programme lasting between 21 and 25 weeks, depending on the type of course, or as individual modules, each lasting between 1 and 6 weeks.

Students who successfully pass module examinations are awarded a Certificate of Recognition of Approved Examination acceptable to JCARC and/or to all EASA Member Authorities.

Currently MAA offers a full selection of Modular courses which are run twice yearly with the examination being held at the end of each module. A variety of Approved Examinations are also available throughout the year.

Note: The short modular courses do not constitute an approved course, and therefore will not offer reductions in the experience requirements for those seeking license issue, or extending basic license categories.

These courses provide training in discrete JCAR Part 66 modules: and can be used by those seeking:

A. Engineers who are interested in pursuing careers in aviation industry with and / or B.eng in Aeronautical, Electrical, Electronics, Communication and computer network, Mechatronics, Mechanical, Industrial and Maintenance Engineering Degrees.

B. Completion, Conversion of an existing National license (ie. A and/or P, or Avionics-Part 65)

C. Initial license issue following the Self-Improver route.

D. Extension to basic JCAR Part 66 license categories (ie. B1 to B2)
