Aww damn...you're doing all of them?

Apparently there's some courses offered around Canada. I haven't personally taken those exams but I've heard they're crazy difficult.

I've been told that the ASA AMT test prep books are helpful. They are tailored to the FAA tests, but the question format and material is said to be similar to the recent TC tests.
They should serve as a good way of helping you take the huge texts that are currently getting you down and divide them into bite sized pieces.

Edit: Maybe not so much for the avionics exams. I missed that part of the original post.

The Stevenson AME refresher course is worth it's weight in gold! I took it a few years ago and it's tailored to pass the exams in house.

Hello everyone

Can you please help me with the study material for sitting the AME E License?

I find the FAA ASA books and the Stevenson AME refresher courses are oriented towards the M license.

Thanks

Not as far as I know. They have accommodation packages at the airport. It's a short walk to classes. If you're lucky you can even get your current employer to sponsor you.

I am preparing for the M2 exams. Presently, I am using the ASA test guide to practice. However I seem to realise the books are tailored for FAA. Please is it advisable to use them to study for TC=ransport Canada M2 exams, otherwise what can anyone here advice me?

Thanks

Friends,
I am trying to apply for a Permanent Resident visa to Canada through Express Entry program. My plan is to reach Canada and appear for M1 M2 exams. I have gone through basic training in India but I am not sure if that training will be valued in Canada. So My plan is to reach Canada and have my basic training qualification assessed by an inspector. If that does not workout, I just heard about ICS in Canada which has an online Aircraft Mechanic course which I can complete in less than a year. I checked the list of approved and acceptable list of training organisations in the website and I found the name of ICS in the list. I think if I enroll for the course then I will be eligible to appear for M1 M2 exams. I also know that I need work experience for writing M1 M2 exams. I have been working as an Aircraft Technician in India since Jan 2017 till date. Will this experience be counted as the eligibility ? I went throught the website and saw specific tasks that I should complete before appearing for the exams. And it says atleast 70% of the tasks listed should be completed. But since I am a Category B 1 technician ( mechanical ) and have only worked on fixed wing aircrafts fitted with turbofan engines and never in a rotary one many tasks associated with rotary and electricals in the list are tasks that I cannot complete. I have an Easa log book in which I have entered the tasks that I have associated with. Is there a specific log book format for canadian license? Please help me to go through the procedures and I humbly request for suggestions regarding the same. How can I make this happen?

Behur,


Indian training is not recognized in Canada. You will have to redo basic training. You can do it online:

https://www.icslearn.ca/programs/trades ... -mechanics

I believe the time you did working on airplanes will count towards your logbook. You’ll have to fill out a logbook to 70% also. There is a specific logbook you’ll have to use and can be bought here. Or download from tc website:

https://www.avworld.ca/avworldca-logboo ... le-hc.html

I don’t think your logbook sign offs will count as Canada and India do not have a bilateral agreement for maintenance. So if air canada breaks in Delhi a DCA Indian licenced guy can’t sign the aircraft out. I know the Indian maintenance system is based off easa but isn’t easa approved or recognized.

Once you complete the logbook and ics:

You can write the 4 transport Canada licensed exams.

Please note the assessment officer from transport Canada had final say, but from what I’ve seen these are the outcomes usually.

Airframe
Power plant
Standard practices
Cars .

Good luck.

Very few guys pass the tests on there own. Most have to do the prep course in Manitoba offered by Stevenson college. This is the route I would go, or just go back to school and do an approved course.
