This CAR comes into force with immediate effect in respect of new organisation or organisations seeking initial approval or existing organisations seeking changes to the scope of approval held by them ( Cat G can work upto 1st August 2015)
Phase One - Knowledge: Consists of basic training, its completion ensures that a trainee has the necessary background in terms of knowledge to proceed to Phase Two of the training. Phase Two - Skills: Consists of general maintenance practices, practical skills and attitude training in order to master essential skills before proceeding to work on airworthy aircraft or components Phase Three - Experience: Consists of applied practical on-the-job training (simulated or actual tasks under supervision) and job oriented maintenance experience in an approved maintenance organisation on an operational aircraft.
Demonstration: An exercise or operation performed by a qualified competent instructional person with the help of teaching aids or actual components to enhance the understanding of a single or group of students any one or combination of fundamental operating principles, constructional features, operational procedures, inspection, servicing, testing, adjustment and defect rectification technique of a subject item.
An exercise or operation performed by anindividual student under the supervision of aqualified instructor that helps inunderstanding the fundamental operatingprinciple or to acquire the required skill infabrication or inspection or servicing ormaintenance or testing or operation or faultdiagnosis in the field of Aircraft Maintenance.
