Engineering Training
Engineering Training school in CTE, Hyderabad is a DGCA approved Training School that is involved in providing Training to the Engineering Personnel of the Airlines and maintenance organisations. It contains the well established infrastructure with all the facilities like air-conditioned modern class-rooms, LCD projection systems etc. as per DGCA requirement, under Cat ‘G’ of CAR series ‘E’, for “Approval of Organisations” by DGCA. It has a sufficient number of qualified and experienced DGCA approved Training Instructors headed by one Chief Manager for conducting the training courses. It conducts different types of technical courses for the employees of Airlines / Maintenance Organisations of India and abroad as well as for the ab-initio participants to be engaged in aviation industries. The courses are designed for class-room training as well as practical training on the aircraft in our fleet of A320 family and others.

Also, aircraft simulators are being used for practical training purpose in our CTE campus. Other than aircraft courses, non-aircraft courses required for aviation industries like ‘Human Factors’ etc. are also being conducted by the Training School. After attending the aircraft courses in the school, the Engineering personnel become eligible for acquiring/renewing licences/approvals for maintenance of aircraft subject to completion of DGCA requirement. Also the ab-initio participants can obtain the standard qualifications for passing BAMEL for future career in aviation industries. Other than A320 family aircraft, training on other aircraft like A330, A300, CRJ-700, B737-200, ATR42 etc. also can be conducted if be requested, with the co-operation of the Engineering Training Schools of other bases of Air India e.g. Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata in addition to the school of CTE, Hyderabad.
Some standard designed training programme normally being conducted in the school are shown below in appendix ‘A’. But other tailor made courses also can be designed as per the requirement.

Different Type of courses offered by ETS, Hyderabad:
The Training Courses are on A320 Family (A320, A319 and A321) aircraft with V2500/CFM56 Engines, A330 aircraft with P&W4168 Engine, CRJ-700 with GE CF 34-8C5 Engine are conducted for obtaining AME Licence / Approvals as per DGCA requirement for certification of aircraft and/or its components. The Licence / Approvals to be obtained are valid for Line / Major maintenance as well as for overall shops. In all the courses, examinations are conducted by DGCA in each phase of the classroom training where, the pass marks as per DGCA norms is required to obtain for appearing in the oral examinations for obtaining licence/approvals.

The courses help for both the Line and major maintenance technicians for their day to day activities and for future career progression. The courses are conducted in the form of Class-room training and of practical training. Examinations are being conducted for both class-room training as well as for practical training. 60% marks in aggregate is considered as the pass marks for the courses.
Having the basic knowledge on aircraft/engine/avionics systems with the minimum qualifications and experience as required by the parent company. It is advisable that the technicians should have gone through the basic trainings on aircraft.
For A319/A321 aircraft difference courses, the person must have been trained and worked on A320 aircraft in similar trade. Else, a full course on the aircraft is to attend.
The Offered Aircraft Courses: Same as the courses offered for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers but with less duration.
Some other type of courses are offered to the personnel involved in Aircraft Maintenance activities in the aviation industries. These courses are of short durations but quiet important for one airlines/maintenance organisation. Any person involved in aviation industries or working in related areas are eligible for these courses. The courses are as :
The coverage by this course is very important in the aviation industries as on date. It became one mandatory requirement for all the personnel of aviation industries.
