While textbook knowledge is clearly an important foundation to maintenance training, Airbus Helicopters, Inc. believes that instruction received in the classroom – and work performed on actual helicopter components – is critical to providing the best training possible.
All of our maintenance courses are designed to provide first-hand shop work experience through on-the-job exercises. The amount of shop work scheduled for a particular course is determined by the level of training required and the complexity of the component system(s) involved. These courses provide maintenance technicians with a thorough understanding of the skills and requirements needed to evaluate aircraft performance following maintenance actions (aircraft and/or engine).
Our Airframe Field Maintenance Courses are designed to teach aircraft maintenance engineers/technicians how to maintain their Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft for intermediate inspections, in accordance to the Aircraft Maintenance Manual. Our Maintenance Refresher Courses are designed to provide recurrent training on helicopter maintenance.
Course acceptance is based on the requirement that the student possesses one of the following:
- Certificate as an A&P Mechanic or Aircraft Maintenance Technician
- Canadian approved Aircraft Maintenance Engineer certificate
- One year of experience as an active mechanic on helicopters (Commercial/Military)
- Three years of general experience as a commercial or military aircraft mechanic
At the completion of the course, a closed book final examination will be administered in which the technician must achieve a score of 70% in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.

Off-Site Maintenance Training
Airbus Helicopters, Inc. understands the day-to-day operational priorities that our operators face, and our maintenance instructors are able – on request – to travel to your facility to conduct Airframe Familiarization or Maintenance Refresher Courses. This enables you to reduce your travel costs, while at the same time minimizing the time required away from the shop.
