Aviation Australia

Course details

CRICOS course code: 098985K

Level of study: Career Based/Vocational

Summary

This specialisation is made-to-order if your passion is for probing the mechanics of engines and associated systems, except here, you’re learning to work on something slightly bigger than your average V8.

In undertaking this course, you will be trained in the skills needed to maintain jet engines, complex aircraft systems and electrical systems, including antiskid braking and undercarriage systems, cabin pressurisation, fuel and pneumatic components, flight controls, hydraulics and more.

Purpose of Course

This course provides students with the underpinning knowledge and skill requirements to progress to an Aircraft technician, enabling them to complete:

• perform scheduled inspections;

• fault diagnosis and repair;

• modification of airframes and airframe mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components; and of aircraft engines and (where applicable) propellers.

The qualification defines the exit from an apprenticeship and may apply to either aircraft maintenance performed on flight lines/ramps and in hangars, or to airframe and engine component repair and overhaul performed in workshops.

This qualification articulates with the MEA50218 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) which is one of the elements that qualifies individuals for the grant of a CASA B1.1 or B1.3 Aircraft maintenance Engineer Licence.

The qualification also provides credits towards the MEA50418 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical) and the MEA60218 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical).

Target Group

This qualification may apply to employees of civil aviation maintenance organisations or to individuals that wish to gain employment in the aviation industry who perform scheduled inspections, fault diagnosis and repair, and modification of airframes and airframe mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components, and of aircraft engines and (where applicable) propellers.

The qualification may apply to either aircraft maintenance performed on flight lines/ramps and in hangars, or to airframe and engine component repair and overhaul performed in workshops.
