COURSES on offer
IR Part 66 – Category B1 and B2 Licences
Category B licences are aimed at line maintenance. They can also be used within base maintenance, in inspection or supervisory roles.
To be eligible for a licence, an individual must have completed the relevant modular examinations and have a prescribed period of aircraft maintenance experience.
A minimum of Grade C GCSE’s or equivalent in maths and a science subject is required. Practical maintenance experience will also be a benefit, in both assisting understanding and ensuring all experience requirements will be fulfilled within the specified 5 year period.
The wider responsibilities of the Category B technician requires a more detailed knowledge than for Category A and, hence, a longer period of experience. Find out more about knowledge levels here.
Category B1 is mechanically oriented and covers aircraft structure, airframe systems, engines and propellers, or rotors, as appropriate. Category B1 licence holder will be also be able to certify all electrical work, including power and distribution systems and control and indication systems.
Category B2 is avionic based and confers privileges similar to those of the mechanical technician to cover electrical power and distribution and control and indication systems associated with avionic systems.
