Part 21 Design Technician is a Level 7 Special Purpose Award programme aimed at Aircraft Maintenance personnel or those with a background in Aeronautical Engineering and offers them a career path into the area of Initial Airworthiness as an Aircraft Design Engineer. It also offers more experienced personnel a deeper insight into Initial Airworthiness, in particular, the classification and approval of modifications and repairs.
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”
On successful completion of this course, participants will have a fundamental knowledge of Initial Airworthiness legislation and how it impacts aircraft design and design changes. It will introduce the learner to the theory and practice of Initial Airworthiness and provide them with an opportunity to develop a thorough understanding of the development process for major and minor aircraft modification and repairs.
