After trawling through the usual EASA AMC/GM and CAA stuff, without success, I am trying to find out if a Cat A requires any classroom theoretical training on the ''Type rating'' he or she is applying for within their Part 145. It would appear that 'practical task training' on the areas the Company MOE publish applicable to their Cat A approval is all the lads in my Company are going to get. I am trying to persuade the Company to give them some decent training (Airbus 320) Gen Fam, at least, but would find it easier if I could find a snippet that advises this is required. Obviously these are not Type Ratings as such but even so I would be surprised if no theory training is acceptable. Any help is appreciated.
