|When I did mine I went to TC and was just quoted the CARs
Which basically said 48 months on type, basic training, 12 months on the category I'm applying for and 70% of the applicable tasks. in the CARS
48 months on type I had I was an M1 licensed AME for several years, time as an apprentice counted.
basic training, I had as I obtained my M1 license and went to college
12 months on M2 category aircraft I had worked for the company for over 2 years
70% of the applicable tasks I got signed off by an AME with a M2, I printed out the list in the CAR's and the AME signed and put N/A next to the tasks that were not applicable to the aircraft maintained as well as what the AMO could do,( if the AMO has no scales and sends the aircraft somewhere else to be weighed then the AME will never get that task.) https://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/ ... g-2422.htm
Sent it to TC they called saying the lost my application but had the log book, the next week they called saying they had the application but could not find my log book, (I gave up and said maybe M1 is all I am suppose to be) then 2 weeks later a different TC inspector called and said my M2 and log book is on the way.
Both times were frustrating and I was disappointed to hear that other AME's got an M1/M2 working on the same aircraft I did but TC gave me only a M1.
best thing talk to your tc inspector and see if they agree with the plan
hope this helps.
