AME APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING – an initiative by DGCA

Through a public notice, DGCA has launched apprenticeship program in collaboration with various airlines, MRO, and Non-Scheduled Operators. Pass out students from AME Institutes, having Papers-l and 2 (or equivalent Modules) would be eligible to apply.
From the merit list of all registered candidates generated on the AME Apprenticeship portal of the Ministry, final selection for apprenticeship would include assessments/interviews by potential employers registered on the portal with pre-announced vacancies.
Selected candidates would be trained academically with a substantial
component of field experience using Standard Training Modules for Fixed Wing,Helicopters and Avionics Streams.
A Certificate of Competence, which is also recognized as a Certificate of Experience of one-year by DGCA and other stakeholders, would be issued by the establishment concerned to every successful Apprentice.
An interactive portal (www.ameapprenticeship.gov.in) for registration, tracking, monitoring, and disseminating information on AME  Apprenticeship is being developed on the Ministry’s website which is expected to be activated shortly. It would serve as a common platform for all stakeholders in AME Apprenticeship training, i.e. students, establishments, academia, training institutes, and regulatory agencies, to register and track and monitor the implementation of such skilling.
