The programme is 2400 hrs. Taught every weekday from 08:00 – 17:00, on site, and is organised into three phases:
- Phase 1: Academic courses – First year from September to the end of May
- Phase 2: Practical courses – Second year from September to January
- Phase 3: Internship – Second and third year from March to December
After completing their courses in school, students start a separate apprenticeship. The above-mentioned studies qualify the students for such an apprenticeship with an accepted and accredited Part 145 maintenance facility as an aircraft maintenance engineering apprentice. Students get assistance with finding these apprenticeship placements.
All the courses are taught in Iceland but in English. Fully equipped facilities for academic and practical teaching are in Reykjavík. Part of the courses are taught at the Aviation Museum in Akureyri and at various maintenance firms.
The total tuition fee for the study programme is 4.950.000 ISK. Included in this price are all courses, materials and teaching materials. The payment process is as follows:
This study programme is funded entirely by tuition fees so their payment is the prerequisite for students being able to continue their studies and graduate. Menntasjóður (the Icelandic Student Loan Fund) lends for this study programme according to their allocation rules.
