Program FAQs

  • Where can I get a Logbook?
    We would prefer students to record their maintenance experience in the APR-ATC's Logbook. You can buy the APR-ATC's Logbook at RM 50.00 from our office. Alternatively, we also accept Schedule of Inspection Work form by DCAM [Form JPA-5 AER (A)] and any EASA 147 Logbooks/Logbook from other DCAM ATOs. The content must be hand-written, in capital letters and in black ink.
  • Who are the Assessors?
    We have a pool of in-house DCAM-Approved Assessors for Category A1, A3, B1.1, B1.3 and B2. They are very experienced Licensed Aircraft Engineers themselves. Do take note that DCAM personnel may also be present in the Assessment as observer(s).
  • How long will an Assessment take place?
    Depending on the students and type of Assessment, do expect an Assessment to be conducted between 3 to 5 hours per session.
  • Can I apply for an Assessment at APR-ATC if I am a student from other ATO?
    No, you can't because we do not conduct Assessment for 'active' students from other DCAM-Approved ATOs, unless he/she has officially withdrawn from that ATO. Do take note that aircraft maintenance experience requirement for students from ATO and AMO is not the same.
  • Can APR-ATC arrange for Assessment during weekends?
    Yes, we can ! We do understand that external students are aircraft maintenance personnel working during the day and on shifts. For Assessment on weekends, we charge additional RM 300.00 per day.
  • I have passed all DCA Examinations for Category A1 and completed my Logbook. But I only have 2 years of aircraft maintenance experience. Can I go for the Assessment now?
    For personnel from an AMO, the required aircraft maintenance experience for Application for Grant of Licence Category A1 is 3 years. We will only accept your application for an Assessment on the 3rd year.
  • I did partial Assessment at another ATO, can I continue my Assessment at APR-ATC?"
    No, you can't. We have our own unique ways in assessing students. Thus, you will have to start over again.
  • What if I failed the Assessment?
    Fret not, we don't fail students for Assessments ! If the 1st Assesment result is deemed unsatisfactory by the Assessors; a) The student will be called for a Re-Assessment, at least 2 weeks after the 1st Assessment,or b) The student will be required to send 'Checkpoints' via email/by hand to the Assessment Unit. If Re-Assessment result is still unsatisfactory, the above process will be repeated. Please take note on the Re-Assessment fee; 1st Re-Assessment - FREE 2nd Re-Assessment - FREE 3rd Re-assessment onwards - RM 300.00 per session.
  • How long do I have to wait for my Assessment result?
    At the end of the Assessment, our Assessors will inform you whether your Assessment is satisfactory or require a Re-Assessment / Checkpoints submission. If satisfactory, please expect a few days for us to arrange for the Final Assessment Recomendation form, signed by our Accountable Manager. This form is to be enclosed with your application for Licence at the DCAM.
  • Why there are no Trade Assessment besides Monday & Tuesday?
    To streamline the Trade Assessment process, we set Monday and Tuesday for the 1st sitting of Trade Assessment. Other days will be utlised for 2nd sitting onwards. For example, your 1st sitting for the Trade Assessment - Turbine Engines is on Monday, 2.30 pm. You are unable to complete the Trade Assessment on the same day, thus you will be scheduled by the Assessor for the next sitting on any Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
