A little bit of history:
Since the founding of the EASA (
28 September 2003), by (Regulation (EC) No 1592/2002 ) (it reached full functionality in 2008),
EASA took over functions of the JAA (Joint Aviation Authorities) and JAR. JAR had previously copied a lot from
FAR = "Federal Aviation Regulation" of the USA FAA. It has also advanced the Regulation to an international Standard.
The A&P Mechanics-License of the US-FAA underlies still FAR 65. JAR has extended this to JAR-66 and it is nowadays the
worldwide standard for aviation maintenance. All major international airlines/countries have gone to the JAR-66 standard.

Your way to the EASA part 66 licence is first to pass all theory exams, while you are studying you start filling out your
work experience logbook and when you have passed all theory exams you apply for the licence on EASA Form 19.
You can take exams any time you are prepared for. The exam is not easy, this is why I have built this site!

There is no oral or practical exam like for the A&P license! You must prove sufficient practical experience in a work experience log!

You can take exams at any EASA-Member-State National Authority like the UK-CAA or CAA-International or at any EASA Part 147 approved exam place!
When you have passed all theory exams you must apply for the licence on Form 19 within five years. Here you must also prove your work experience!
You can go right away for the licence you want, this means you can go directly for a B1 or B2 licence!

Info:
EASA does not recognise NON-EU JAR-66, A&P or ICAO Type II exams -See section A9! 
The same applies if you want to get an A&P license, there is no crossing over from other licenses!

Please no emails like: I am the greatest, I know everything and I do not need anything & how do I convert to the part 66 EASA licence!
You must take all basic exams again from the beginning on, if you do not have EU-member state certificates!

How can you get the EASA Part 66 Licence?
CAT-A  is mostly offered with an apprenticeship. If not offered by an institution for free I would not go for it!
It entitles you to sign off your own brake and tyre changes etc......

B1 and B2-Training is offered by aviation training schools either in two to three year courses or for aviation
maintenance personnel in 5 to 6 month courses.

Furthermore you can get the EASA Part 66 CAT-A, B1 and B2 as a self-study student. This means that you study at home
for the exams and apply on  EASA Form 19E, like on aviation schools. You can take the exam at various EU-National Aviation Authority
exam places like the UK-CAA, CAA-International  or at various EASA part 147 approved aviation schools
