       8.3     Before issuing a certification authorisation to a WHR employee, the COA holder must provide, and the WHR employee must successfully complete, training and assessment in Part 1 WHR maintenance in accordance with the COA holder’s quality control manual.

Note   This training and assessment is not required for an employed authority or type rating holder.

With reassessment of competency and certification authorisation, a trained WHR employee is permitted to continue as a trained WHR employee.

     8.13     For paragraph 8.12, a WHR with an airframe mentioned in column 1 of Part 2 of the table in Appendix 3 whose piston engine type has been modified to be a turbine engine type, is deemed to be an unlisted WHR.
