We hold IR Part-66 (JAR-66) monthly examinations.
ICAT can examine to level A1 and B1.1. From the 4th May 2009 each examination costs £40. All other charges are identified in the ‘ICAT Examination Requirements’ available below.
Applications must be received no less than three weeks before the examination date. All examinations are held on a Friday and start at 10:00 and 13:30, unless otherwise stated. A place in a morning or afternoon examination session cannot be guaranteed on application. Further guidance is given with the application form.
This will depend on the licence you are trying to obtain. It can be as little as 1 year for an ‘A’ Licence, but can be as much as 5 years for a ‘B’ Licence. More information on experience requirements can be found on the IR Part-66 page or at www.caa.co.uk
The knowledge level required depends on the licence you are studying towards and varies form chapter to chapter. This is given in the syllabus. The syllabus and knowledge levels are available on the E-learning modules page dedicated to that module..
If you have been working on first or second line aircraft for more than 7 years then you may be able count this as up to 4 years of the 5 year requirement for the B Licence. This is at the discretion of the CAA and, as such, only they can make the decision to accept your previous experience, so it is best to check with them.
Many countries have a licensing system that is at ICAO level 2, the CAA licence is at ICAO level 3. An engineer holding a licence at ICAO level 2 would have to start from scratch in order to achieve an CAA IR Part-66 Licence.
