Assessments For External Candidates
How do I apply for an Assessment and what is the process?
You may apply online or walk in to our office. Upon application, you are required to submit the following documents;
Copy of IC/Passport
Letter of Confirmation of Employment
Copy of DCA Examination Results
Copy of Licence [for Licence Extension, Limitation Removals and Validated AML Assessments only]
Copy of Logbook [not required for Validated AML Assessment]
Evidence of proficiency in the English Language. (Example : SPM result slip with minimum grade C)
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.
What if I failed the Assessment?
Fret not, we don't fail students for Assessments !
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.
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because we do not conduct Assessment for 'active' students from other DCAM-Approved ATOs, unless he/she has officially withdrawn from that ATO.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
