- Aircraft Technician: Contains apprentice training materials for diagnosing, maintaining, repairing, and installing necessary electrical components to deliver and integrate various aircraft’s electrical powers.
- Aircraft Instrument Mechanic: Exercises on a more complex set of aviation-based apprenticeship programme schemes, for instance, integrating electronic and fine mechanical prowess through auto-pilot and dexterity training.
- Aircraft Radiotrician: Trains apprentices mainly on navigating and communicating through aircraft’s radio station. In special cases, this scheme also provides materials for apprentices to fix and adjust related aircraft’s equipment.
- Aircraft Mechanic: Gives knowledge of integrated aircraft systems’ processes as well as trains apprentices to perform well in maintaining and certifying aircraft’s machinery specifications through corrective and preventive actions.
- Aircraft Structural Worker: Provides theoretical and practical grounding for artisans (or apprentices) to repair the physical form of aircraft after damaging incidents.

- Electrician: Provides technical knowledge about law and regulations for electrical networks as well as practical training in maintaining and installing the various light and heavy-weighted electrical equipment as needed.
- Fitter & Turner: Involves apprentices to turn, mill, grind, and weld machinery equipment to ensure those machines are always ready to be used.
- Millwright: Learns all about heavy machinery, including dealing with mechanical and electrical combinations of robotic and automatic engineering processes through modifying and reconstructing machinery equipment.
- Tool & Jigmaker: Teaches apprentices to create specialised jigs to assist production capacities with as minimum waste percentages as possible.
- Turner & Machinist: Trains involved apprentices or artisans according to their different machinery-related specialisations (such as surface grinders or milling machines) to accurately produce or repair machines’ parts according to the clients’ instructions.
- Welder: Enables apprentices to learn in-depth about techniques in producing welds even if faced with difficult situations.
