    Default Am I on the right track to obtain an AME license (EASA)?

    Hi all,

    I'm a junior year mechanical engineering undergraduate student from India. I have decided to pursue aircraft maintenance as a career and started preparing for the examinations by self-study.

    What I want to know is if clearing these exams alone would make me eligible to get hired by an EASA approved Part-145 MRO.

    From given regulations by EASA, a person has to demonstrate five years of experience if there is no previous involvement and experience within the field (including those not enrolled at a Part-147 training organisation). I wanted to know how anyone would hire a person with no experience. Do you have any tips? If yes, please share.

    For a better picture, let me tell you about my plan:
    > Study for and clear the modules (13 for B1.1) in a year or more
    > Meanwhile, apply for a part-time job for a similar/related role
    > Apply for a job at a Part-145 approved MRO after clearing the modules
    > Gain experience of 5 or more years
    > Apply for AME license

    Please tell me if this is a valid path. If not, kindly suggest an alternate and appropriate path or additional steps I might need to follow.
    Many thanks in advance.

    We do not know a lot about the European requirements.
    Am not sure about the required schooling required or experience requirements to test pout for your certification.

    I will try to research this in the near future.

    Thank you for signing up.
