The AMT program was developed to address the primary need for aircraft maintenance professionals in an expanding commercial aviation market. There has been increasing demands for commercial aviation worldwide and particularly in the UAE. This is mandated by airline companies’ keen interest in increasing their fleets of aircrafts and registering an unprecedented growth in this sector of transportation. The airline’s fleets require a considerable amount of human resources that are versed in this high-tech industry to manage its growth.
The AMT program at ADPoly was established to fulfill the UAE’s need for national expertise in aircraft maintenance technologies. The program provides internationally (approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency-EASA) and nationally approved (Approved by the General Civil Aviation Authority of the UAE GCAA) Ab/Initio training in basic aircraft maintenance technologies. These approvals lead to industry required licensing. Additionally, AMT programs which are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, include a two years diploma in aircraft maintenance technology, three years Higher Diploma in aircraft maintenance technology, and applied bachelor for aircraft maintenance management. The accredited program embeds the requirements of EASA’s/GCAA’s Ab/Initio training under part 66/CAR 66 Category A1.
