Continuing Airworthiness Maintenance Management

Aircraft operations rely on ensuring safe operations as well as greater aircraft reliability and availability. Continuing Airworthiness is not just the maintenance of aircraft and equipment. It also involves monitoring the performance of products in service.


The objective of this blended learning training course is to provide a comprehensive overview of:

  • How to improve fleet availability, reliability and safety
  • How to reduce maintenance costs
  • Your responsibilities & accountability for maintenance performed by third parties
  • What new skills, techniques and approaches are required as performance becomes a reality in CAMM (Continuous Airworthiness Maintenance Management ) oversight.

The course content is based on the international ICAO requirements. The course can help you to develop a implement & improve Continuing Airworthiness Maintenance Management programs, adding value to your operation and optimizing your aircraft maintenance budget. It can also assist with streamlining any maintenance that you have outsourced to third parties.


Participants can only register for part 2 of the course, the livestream webinars, upon successful completion of the 4 online modules and meeting all part 1 certification criteria.


Due to the Corona pandemic travel restrictions, the 2021 edition will be an online learning course. Four (4) online on-demand modules will have to be completed and an oral test needs to be taken and passed before candidates can attend the two livestream webinars. The 2022 edition is foreseen to be a blended course with on-demand modules followed by two days of classroom based training at the ASPC-Rwanda in Kigali, housed at the College of Science and Technology of the University of Rwanda.


This short course is designed for experienced personnel from all parts of the aviation industry. It will be of particular value to manufacturers, suppliers, operators, MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) staff and civil aviation authorities who are concerned with the continuing airworthiness and/or certification of aircraft and their systems.
