Developing a Training Program for Composite Maintenance Technicians

Composite Mechanic smallThe use of composites in aircraft structures and other components has increased fuel savings by reducing weight without sacrificing structural strength. As more composite aircraft enter into operation, detailed and documented composite training should be developed to ensure that personnel performing composite maintenance on aircraft structures and components properly evaluate and repair damage to meet the highest level of safety.

The course is designed to provide the basic/minimum composite knowledge and skills that a technician should have related to composite repair.

It includes a sample training course curriculum and practical skills evaluation which can be used as a baseline framework for maintenance organizations to develop a composite repair training program to suit their individual needs.
