A Phased Approach to learning

Our programme is structured so that students are first able to benefit from the comprehensive Mechanical and Avionic syllabus of the proven Level 3 National Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering with its coverage of core subjects and fundamentals at just the right level of detail.

Students then start their 2nd Year undertaking common EASA modules before focusing their studies on either the Mechanical (B1.1 or B1.3) or Avionic (B2) disciplines, knowing that they will be working towards obtaining one of the most widely recognised and accepted international qualification standards in the industry today. In this way, our students never lose sight of the fundamentals and are better placed to understand the relationship between aircraft systems and topics in the syllabus as they later progress to cover subjects at a more advanced level.

We believe that our phased-approach to training is a key element in achieving the learning outcomes and enables our students to develop their language skills and adapt to their new environment earlier on in the programme.
