Aircraft Maintenance - Technical Training Validity Expiration

Aircraft Maintenance - Technical Training Validity Expiration

Aircraft Maintenance - Technical Training Validity Expiration


Does anyone here works in the Aircraft Maintenance branch? And if so, under which autorithy (FAA, JAA)?

I'm currently working under Venezuela's Civil Aviation Autorithy (INAC), and there is this policy about technical training that gives ANY training a validity of 12 months after completion.

Example: If a licensed Technician goes under any Borescope Inspection course today (30/7/2016), he/she will only be capable of performing the Borescope Inspection he was trained for until 30/7/2017. After that he need to be trained again.

According to some coworkers, this isn't the case for others authorities, so I would like some insight about this.

If there is some regulation similar to this one, could you plase name/attach said document (Ex. FAA Part xxx, paragraph xx.xx).

Thanks in advance guys!!

RE: Aircraft Maintenance - Technical Training Validity Expiration

In the US, FAA has no time limit for training. If one works for an Air Carrier, or a Repair Station, each of those entities are required to have some training program and that program may require recurrent training on some calendar basis. If you are doing NDT work for a repair station of air carrier, you would have a program that meets ASNT 410 or some other Industry Standard that requires recurrent training. If you are an A&P working on non-air carrier aircraft, there is NO required training, just the recent experience requirements of 65.83
