Formerly known as Brunel Technical College, City of Bristol College has been working in the field of aviation maintenance promoting training and partnerships to MROs and individuals. Today the EASA Part 147 Approved Centre supports several EASA Part 145 and a number of Part 21 organizations with their training requirements.
At Bristol, we’re proud of our history but we also commit to the future. Capital investment in the renewing of our training centres, workshops and hangars has always been a priority to us. Keeping pace with technology we use the latest computerized training equipment. We have added a £5M composite training workshop to complement our facilities to deliver the practical element of Module 6 and Module 7. This facility is also used to deliver apprenticeship training programmes for Part 21 organisations.
Despite the present world economic situation, the EASA Part 147 Centre is preparing itself to meet future demands. Demonstrating its commitment to the aviation industry, work will start in the coming months on a new training centre with a £45 million college investment. There will also be new equipment in all existing classrooms, workshops and our two training hangars.
With work in hand for the introduction of the recent changes to the Part 66 syllabus for Module 11 and Module 13, there has been a positive response from industry to work with the college.
The college has not only full-time EASA Part 147 Category B1 and Category B2 maintenance training courses but also offers short courses for EASA Part 147. In addition, the college delivers customized training programmes at customers’ sites including HF, EWIS and SFAR 88. Consultancy services to assist other organizations set up their own Part 147 organisation completes a full suite of offerings from the college.
