On Job Training
What is On Job Training?
On-the-job training (OJT) in aviation is a form of practical training provided at MRO and in airlines. During the training, students are familiarized with the working environment of an airline and different operations of Hangers. Students also get a hands-on experience using machinery, equipment, tools, materials, etc.
The students perform tasks that are essential to their job function with the supervision of a manager or Engineer. OJT used and is required to broaden an employee’s skill set and to increase productivity.
Why On Job Training is essential?
IAME ensures that the student receives the necessary confidence to carry out day-to-day operations unattended and without outside help. The IAME training institute integrate state of the art technical training for aircraft maintenance engineering and overhaul.
IAME provides OJT in following areas
Line Maintenance should be understood as any maintenance that is carried
out before flight to ensure that the aircraft is fit for the intended flight. Scheduled maintenance or checks including visual inspections that will detect obvious unsatisfactory conditions/discrepancies but
do not require extensive in depth inspection.
- Line Maintenance may include: —
troubleshooting. — Defect rectification. — Component replacement with use of external test equipment if required.
- Component replacement may include
components such as engines and
- Scheduled maintenance or checks
including visual inspections that will
detect obvious unsatisfactory
conditions/discrepancies but do not
require extensive in depth inspection.
- It may also include internal structure,
systems and powerplant items which are visible through quick opening access panels/doors.
- Minor repairs and modifications which do not require extensive disassembly and can be accomplished by simple means.
Base maintenance may be referred to as heavy maintenance, and consists of
tasks that are generally more indepth and long-lasting than those above, but are performed less frequently. An MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) company will have to have large facilities and specialized equipment and staff to undertake base maintenance and many operators contract-out this function.
- C and D Checks which will check for
deterioration of the airframe, engines
- Removal of defects .
- Implementation of Service Bulletins (SB)and Airworthiness Directives (AD),although this can also be done duringLine maintenance.
- Technology upgrade – fitting of Terrain Avoidance and Warning System (TAWS), Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) etc.
- Cabin reconfiguration, painting etc.
