The burgeoning aviation industry in Wales has decided to adopt electronic-learning in order to train prospective aviation and aerospace technicians. The project, which is the work of Barry College's business-services division and Cardiff-based Peter Gill & Associates, will address the Civil Aviation Authority's JAR-66 licence requirements. Barry College will be responsible for developing 17 modules for the aircraft licence. Each module will be available online and on a standalone CD, which will include text, diagrams, 2-D and 3-D animation and audio and visual components.
