This module contains instruction in basic mathematics for the aviation maintenance technician as prescribed by EASA Part 66/147 for the B1, B2 rating. For most students, this module is a review of the principles learned previously in life. Those being exposed to these mathematic principles for the first time may require remedial training.
There are many applications for mathematics in aviation maintenance. the goal of Module 1 is to review the basic mathematic knowledge that a certified maintenance professional will need.
