Here is an FAQ about the relationship of EASA part 66, JAR-66 and FAA A&P Licenses!
EASA does not recognise NON-EU Part-66, A&P or ICAO Type II etc. exams, nor their work experience!
The same applies if you want to get an A&P license, there is no crossing over from other licenses!

You can take exams for the EASA part 66 and other part 66 at approved
places whenever you feel ready for it.
It is not easy, this is why I have built an exam preparation site.
To take an exam you must include in the EASA Form 19E a copy of your
passport stamped and signed by your
manager or quality control manager. You are getting an exam date (e.g. UK-CAA) and take exams until you have
gathered all 13/14 exam certificates.
You must apply for the licence when you have mastered all 13/14 exams,
and prove sufficient work experience
in a work experience log book within five years!
CAT-A, B1 & B2 is www.EASA66.com
Modules cost Euro 20 to Euro 70 depending on their size!
My system is in a way that you must make three exam trips to an official exam place, in case you are far away from an exam place.
Here is a quick run-down how to get your EASA part 66 licence.
You must plan 3 exam trips to get the 13/14 modules done.
If you live nearby an exam place you can take exams monthly or as you like it!
While you are studying you already collect work experience log signatures in a work log book.

take modules 1 to 5 at the first exam or first 2 exams.
Take modules 6,7 and the 2 module 7 essays together.
Take module 10 (legislation) multiple choice and M10 essays together
Take module 9 (human factors) and M9 essays together!
Take aerodynamics, propellers and turbine engines and/or M11 together.
Have a look at my site www.easa66.com for the different types of licences, the modules and their syllabus!
to B1.1: For the prove of work experience use the
Aircraft Maintenance Engineer's Basic Practical Logbook and record the B1.1 tasks which are not CAT-A.
You must take on a B1 level following exams: M1 to M8, M9, Parts of M10, M11,M15 & M1
A Computer printout of the work you have done is very helpful, just transfer the data to your logbook!
To take exams you do not have to present work experience. You can start
taking exams as soon as you are prepared for!
Work experience must be presented when you have passed all 14 B1 or all 13 B2 exams and you are applying for the
licence,for instance at the UK-CAA. The assessor for your work-experience-log can be one of your licensed supervisors.
It is not necessary for him to have an EASA licence! If you currently do not have enough work experience,
you can get it within five years from your first exam on.
My system is an on-line exam preparation. You can start any time!My
system prepares students with little background to fully licensed
technicians from Non-EU countries.
The study time takes usually from 6 to 18 month, depending on the pace of studying and aviation background.
