Please see below the training pipeline for the below Accelerated Apprentice Schemes. All questions should be directed first to your AFCO and this information is correct as of today and maybe subject to change.

ACCELERATED APPRENTICE (AA) AE SCHEME PIPELINE

The aim of the AA AE scheme is to qualify a Leading Air Engineering Technician (LAET) within two years of entry. Following Initial Naval Training (INT) the AA pipeline consists of 2 bespoke technical training courses. These are principally a compression of the AET pipeline covering the same milestones but with a bespoke task book during AA AE Field Training at an Air Station. This is followed by LAET Qualifying Course (LAETQC) and Leading Rates Leadership Course (LRLC) alongside their AET counterparts.

PIPELINE DESCRIPTION

INT.
The AA recruits undergo the same training as their AET counterparts and should be treated in the same manner. They join as Probationary LAET (P/LAET). (10 Weeks).

AE AA Enabling Course.
A compressed version of the AETQC where the AA trainees develop their system knowledge and learn how to operate in the air environment safely. This will also include Able Rates Leadership Course (ARLC) and Basic Sea Survival Course (BSSC). At the end of this time their trade preference card will be submitted for either Mechanical (M) or Avionic (Av). (14 Weeks).

AE AA Field Training.
This provides exposure to a squadron environment and an aircraft type. They will be expected to complete their AA Field Phase Task Book which is based upon the standard AET task book, with some additional Command Leadership and Management (CLM) elements. (23 Weeks).

The first 18 weeks is a compressed version of the AET pipeline which culminates in achieving the Qualified to Sign (QS) and Qualified to Maintain (QM) competencies.

The following 5 weeks are spent undertaking the LAET development section of the task book where the focus is understanding the role of a supervisor in addition to other CLM tasks.

LAETQC.
This is the standard traded course alongside their non-accelerated counterparts. (51 Weeks).

LRLC.
This is the standard 4-week course which marks the end of the AA pipeline. Following successful completion, the AA will become a LAET working towards their Certificate of Competence to Supervise Aircraft Maintenance. (4 Weeks).

Average Time to complete - 98 Weeks (not including leave periods).
