    I know a lot that does not use their A licence guys to their full potential and it is Compliance led. I bet 400 would know the person in question. Our A guys must do a gen fam course plus a lot more and the tasks are very restricted in number. The minefield of Part M and Part 145 regs that contradict each other.

    By not mandating 'type training' for Cat A certifiers it has lowered standards that B1's or B2's should not encourage, the Industry will use the 'Not fallen out the sky yet' excuse to whittle down any type training to even lower levels than it currently is for B1's and B2's. After all when a Cat A signs a CRS it's no different than when we sign one, the responsibility is the same, the consequences when errors occur are the same, the legal ramifications are the same and yet EASA allows them to perform these tasks with no formal classroom type training. It will be an interesting case when a fatal accident occurs involving a Cat A error and a Judge decides whether this system was wise and without acceptable risk.

    My main worry is the VAST variety in the standard of A licence holders I have seen . Some are excellent with lots of knowledge , competence and experience , whilst others are shocking in their lack of knowledge and competence , even if they have done a lot of tasks and dailies etc . Unfortunately I have also seen similar variation in B license holders ..........

    Funnily enough , there wasn't such a variation when we had BCARs and ORAL boards ! Ah those were the days !
    B737,757,767 , A320/330/340 ........ And several bars .....

    Trouble is Cat A's can slip through so many nets now and end up with full CRS on their tasks granted to them without that more thorough Type training and all that goes with the granting of a full B1 or B2 Type Approval.

    It is a watering down of basic standards that EASA are totally ignoring (perhaps by choice).

    We have always had varying degrees of competence with licenced engineers but it does seem that the 'varying degrees' seem to be getting greater since the introduction of JAR 66 or is it just us old farts?!!

    FWIW just look back a few of the threads on here, so many with their module passes A, B1 & B2 but most haven't taken the time to read and understand Part 66 QED really
