Leonardo Projects

New E-learning course

Theoretical Knowledge E-learning Course for training of Aircraft Technicians Category A. 

In a collaborative effort that involved aviation experts from Norway, Portugal and England, a complete e-learning course for the initial training of professional Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) has been developed with support from EU’s Leonardo da Vinci programme.

In 1996, prior to the introduction of the new pilot training syllabus for fixed wing aircraft, Nordian and partners developed a standardised training solution for pilot training to be used all over Europe, consisting of books, Computer Based Training (CBT) and study guides. The output of the Leonardo da Vinci project is now in use by flight training organisations in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, England, Germany, Netherland, Belgium, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Serbia and India.

The aim and objectives of the new AME project was to offer an equivalent standardised training solution for the training of professional aircraft maintenance engineers in Europe by adapting the output of the previous Leonardo da Vinci project. The new project made use of new technology by adapting an optional e-learning / distance learning feature to enhance the dissemination and exploitation of the outcome. Relevant parts of the existing 15 fixed wing text books have been modified and rewritten as required to comply with the latest AME syllabus. Existing multimedia content have been customized and new CBT specific to the training of aircraft engineers have been developed as well.

The result of this project is a total training solution for initial training of Aircraft Maintenance Engineers category A. The solution is integrated into an E-learning platform and distributed through a Learning Management System which will provide students access to the required training materials as e-books and Computer Based Training. This allows training organisations the flexibility of either conducting their theoretical training as traditional classroom-based courses or Internet-based courses - or any combination of these two training methods (also known as blended learning).

The Category A Aircraft Technician e-learning course is now available for Maintenance Training Organisations.
