AME Course Syllabus

The duration of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is of 4 years. 4 years constitutes of 2 years academic programs and 2 years practical training. DGCA Govt of India is the regulatory body which conduct the modules in academic years. The candidate has to clear all the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering subjects and training to get the AME license. There are total 17 modules but candidate have to clear the modules depending upon the chosen stream. In India, Module 1 and Module 2 are not applicable because candidate has already studied Mathematics and physics in 10+2 or equivalent.
