These PART 66 modules are presented in detail with examples of implementation.

To adapt to all profiles, NOVAE offers 3 types of training:

  • ERE option: Personal e-learning preparation, targeted refresher course, then examinations with tailored support from qualified personnel throughout your learning;

    For greater flexibility, the ERE option is available in 2 versions: 

    • Condensed (by default): the instruction period is around 8 weeks, modules are taught as close together as possible. The examination is taken at the end of teaching to maintain the benefit from the support.
    • Expanded (on request, according to profile): the duration can be increased to up to 6 months. That allows employees to combine training with time in the company.
  • ETOS option: E-learning preparation, then examinations (you decide when you are ready);
    A switch to face-to-face teaching is possible: if you are not comfortable once your training has started, you can switch over to the ERE option and receive the support of qualified instructors.

  • Full: full course / practice / examinations

What is the advantage of NOVAE training? Flexible, autonomous training that adapts to your needs (examination credits possible according to certificates acquired in accordance with OSAC regulations).
Send in your information request and our advisors will make contact with you to assess your profile and offer you the best guidance.

PART-66 Training - Aircraft maintenance licence: questions and answers

How do I get my EASA Part 66 license?

To get your license, delivered by the OSAC, you will have to validate a theoretical part composed of QCM by modules (result >= 75%) and a practical part (experience from 1 to 5 years, according to your qualifications) in PART 145 aircraft centers (in France and abroad). The NOVAE PART 66 training will allow you to validate the theoretical part of the license.

What our trainees say

I highly recommend this training organization, very serious and with a very good support for the trainees. The main trainer listens to the trainees and personally adapts the session to the trainee. The organization is very responsive to the requests of the trainees, you should not hesitate to collaborate with them because by crossing the opinions of the various people I know in my professional circle they are by far the most concerned about the success of the trainees.

Throughout my training, I needed advice, which NOVAE did very well by giving me quick and informed answers. The availability of your staff is quite remarkable and deserves to be known by people who will soon need your services.

I would like to thank you very much for your perseverance and your interest in my file. My project would surely never have succeeded without you. Thank you once again!

Good team, good atmosphere, very very happy. There are small modifications to be made on some courses but the trainers are listening. Honestly it's a good school. I will recommend the center, it is very instructive and I have already started to talk about you.
