I found some discussion at the following link, although it does degrade after a few posts.

Your best bet would be to find an EASA Part 147 school. There you can do the theoretical modules and the written exams. You´ll still need a level 3 type course on an aircraft (also taught by EASA Part 147 schools) to get your licence (the EASA Part 66 B1 and B2 licences are typerated).

EASA will start giving the xams in ORlando , Florida starting this NOV 09 yuo must complete the modules required by EASA in EASA part 147 school. you can acces the UK CAA website to get all the info. Once you finish all yuor modules yuo still cannot release an aircraft unless you have a level 3 approved type license on the plane.

Im still waiting for one day when FAA and EASA to recognize each others license so we dont have to go through this

Do you have an I/A? If so that should help you quite a bit.

I believe the Canadian License conforms. I was looking at a school in Dawson Creek a while back and the big issue was that the European rules require experience, and the I/A satisfies the apprenticeship requirements the US A&P doesn't have.

But don't quote me on that. Like I said I was just sniffing around a few years ago.
