Oy, so much for trying to keep posts brief!
Any organization that provides JAA 147 approved training is required by regulation (legally, in other words) to include a practical training portion, also known as OJT. The training can be accomplished on a static engine without requiring disassembly, destruction, sabotage, et al. The manufacturer is not necessarily approved to provide this type of training, and the company providing the training is not required to actually own the equipt.. JAA regs mandate that companies maintaining or operating the equipment complete the training prior to beginning operation or maintenance actions, which in many cases means before actually owning or having access to the equipment.
Sorry the initial post caused such surprise to some readers, but since their isn't a specific 'training' forum and in the interest of brevity I left it to the reader to determine whether it applied to their area of expertise or not.
