To help tackle the shortfall of engineers in Ireland, Resource Group, a Part 147 training provider in Europe, will soon be opening a new Part 66 examination centre in Shannon, Ireland.

The newly established examination centre will provide students with the opportunity to obtain both UK CAA and EASA certifications, enabling them to fulfil requirements for A1, A3, B1.1, B1.3, and B2 licences.

The initial examination dates will be available towards the end of July and are open to all engineers who have acquired Part 66 Self-Study modules through Resource Group.

Managing Director of Resource Group Training Solutions, Ian Fitzpatrick, said: “We regularly receive a significant level of engagement with our self-study courses from engineers residing in Ireland. Through thorough research and a substantial volume of interactions regarding our Self-Study product, Ireland consistently ranks among the top ten locations for website searches and inquiries so ultimately opening an examination centre in Shannon, Ireland felt like the right choice.

“We anticipate that this examination centre will create pathways for numerous engineers, helping to bridge the gap in the shortage of skilled workers and to meet the increasing demand in the industry.”

Resource Group’s Part 66 Self-Study courses enable individuals to work towards a Part-66 licence in their own time; reducing the need to take long periods away from work at a time when the industry is in need of every skilled worker available. With input from industry experts and educational specialists to enhance learner experience, the courseware includes 3D graphics, interactive scenarios and engaging video content, specifically designed to maximise learners’ understanding of course concepts regardless of their preferred learning style.

The courseware includes end of module knowledge checks with detailed reports to help learners identify their strengths and weaknesses, as well as timed, mock assessments to simulate the Part 66 examination experience.

The new hub in Ireland is the first location to open as part of Resource Group’s examination centre expansion programme, which is set to open further exam centres across Europe in 2024.

During the first month of the new site opening and for a limited time only, Resource Group will be offering A, B1 and B2 Licence bundle discounts, which will see customers make savings off the total cost of individual modules.
