The EASA CAT A program is the first step towards becoming a licensed personnel in the Aircraft Maintenance sector of the industry. APFT has partnered with Lufthansa Technical Training of Germany to deliver the training to young Malaysians who aspire to be Licensed Technicians or Engineers.

The program is a six- month theory and practical training whereby students will take the Lufthansa EASA CAT A exam and then get placed in an MRO to undergo a period of 3 years Industrial Training work. After all tasks have been completed they will be able to apply for their EASA CAT A licence. They can upgrade to be a Licensed Aircraft Engineer by taking the CAT B modules and adding another 2 years to the industrial training period. We have started the course in our Hangar in Subang airport where we have the classrooms, workshop, mechanical room, avionics room, riveting room, tool room and CBT facilities.
