Continuing Airworthiness - Maintenance Programme Skills

TT19M01 | 2 days

The effectiveness of your Maintenance Programme and the competence of your personnel are key to optimising your operational efficiencies, yet such programmes are not well understood in the industry. Regulations require you to build, manage and improve your maintenance programme, but what does this look like in practice?

This understanding is fundamental if you are to fulfil the regulatory requirement of your personnel being competent. What are you measuring their competence against? Improving understanding in this area, and getting the right people doing the right things will ultimately drive improved performance and be reflected in an improved maintenance to flying ratio.

How will this course benefit me?

This course is designed to meet the needs of staff and organisations who want to deliver a consistently robust approach to managing an effective maintenance programme. Through examining industry best practice, the course will provide you with the knowledge and techniques you need in order to promote greater efficiency in maintenance programme management, ultimately improving safety, reliability and profitability.

Looking at the intent of the regulations, the principles and the dependencies of the Approved Maintenance Programme, you will, through interactive exercises, gain a full understanding of the complementary functions. Completing this course will result in you making more informed decisions leading to:

  • Reduced maintenance downtime and costs
  • Improved performance within the AMP team
  • Increased aircraft availability
  • Improving safety by having confidence in the maintenance programme.


Is this course right for me?

This course is designed for staff of civil commercial operators of aircraft based on MSG-3 design methodology, or operators of CMPA (Complex Motor Powered Aeroplanes).

  • Maintenance programme engineers
  • Technical service engineers
  • Fleet engineers
  • Planning engineers
  • Certifying staff / Maintenance engineers
  • Graduates looking to start a career in continuing airworthiness management


This course would also benefit:

  • Technical representatives / Liaison engineers
  • Part-145 managers
  • CAMO managers
  • QA/Compliance monitoring staff and managers



You will need to be experienced in CAMO roles, with a good understanding of Part-M and Part-145 regulations and have a basic understanding of maintenance programme requirements. We highly recommend prior attendance on our TR03 “EASA Part M - Understanding the Management of Continuing Airworthiness” course. Experience in planning, reliability and Part-21 activities is desirable, but not essential.
