Qualification MEA50118 Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) +
MEA50219 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical)
Training Provider Flight One Academy (RTO 45165)
Training Location Archerfield Airport, Brisbane

Flight One Academy has the privilege of being a CASA certified Maintenance Training Organisation. (Certification number CASA.147 MTO.0048.) This allows us to deliver theory and practical training and assessments towards obtaining an Australian Aircraft Engineer Licence.

Theory and hand-skill training is conducted primarily in a classroom environment co-located with our Archerfield Airport aeroskills workshop. To address the practical requirements of the qualification, students will receive the opportunity to undertake practice-based activities recorded in a Log of Industrial Experience and Achievement. Students may complete their logged practical training during the course or alternatively, in another aviation workplace.

Flight One Academy’s engineering double diploma programme is designed as a two year course, with the first year covering the Certificate IV of Aeroskills (Avionics and Mechanical) in its entirety. The Diploma Year builds on this foundational learning with more evolved and complex concepts of aircraft maintenance.

Across the Diploma Year, students will learn how to supervise maintenance activities, remove and install advanced aircraft components, and learn how to troubleshoot a wide range of complex aircraft systems and address requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).

Leveraging the wider Tisdall Aviation Group’s MRO facilities, we have designed the course to provide students with the opportunity to benefit from engagement with our in-house live aircraft maintenance environment, providing every trainee the best possible learning experience.

Outcomes

The School of Engineering Diploma Year is designed around the concept of licence readiness – providing each graduate with the opportunity to complete the learning and associated examinations required by CASA to obtain an Aircraft Engineer Licence outcome.

The course includes formal aeroskills theory training aligned to the knowledge requirements within the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations Part 66 Modules, and assessments that are delivered under our CASA Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation Approval Certificate (CASA.147 MTO.0048). When combined with our extensive practical training, this structure empowers our graduates and prepares them to seize career opportunities as they arise.

To be eligible to apply for a CASA Aircraft Engineer Licence, graduates must also meet CASA’s stipulated employment experience requirements but will not need to undertake further training or assessments.

The expected outcomes of this course, subject to demonstrated competencies, are:

  • MEA40618 Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Avionics)
  • MEA40718 Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Mechanical)
  • MEA50118 Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics)
  • MEA50219 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical)
  • Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority Part 147 Completion Certificate

Training & Assessment Arrangements

Training is conducted at Archerfield Airport in Brisbane, Australia, via face to face classroom learning by experienced aviation trainers utilising authentic aircraft engineer training equipment, tools and aircraft components to supplement the quality theory training.

Assessments for this programme are conducted and invigilated in accordance with the requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA). Assessments may include, but are not limited to, multiple choice, short answer, short essays, group work under observation and practical assessments.

Recognition For Prior Learning (RPL)

Applicants with well documented previous training and/or experience may be eligible for Recognition for Prior Learning toward Units of Competency included in this qualification. Please advise at the time of application if you are seeking RPL.

Delivery Mode

The course is delivered face to face on campus, supported by online learning facilities. The course runs 4 to 5 days per week during term and attendance is compulsory unless otherwise approved by the Head of School. Students undertaking this course are expected to wear the college uniform provided.

Double Diploma

Flight One Academy’s unique Double Diploma of Aeroskills comprehensively delivers all theory training for the both the mechanical and the avionics streams.

The Double Diploma programme involves a challenging workload, so trainees will need to demonstrate perseverance and diligence. The rewards however are significant, as the extended qualification develops a broader and more versatile skillset for graduates to offer potential employers. The Aeroskills Diplomas are optionally available as separate single diplomas.

Certificate vs Diploma

Flight One Academy has designed its Aeroskills Diploma programme to be undertaken as a combined qualification, because all the units contained within the Certificate IV are part of the Diploma. Completing the Certificate IV allows you to develop the skills you will need to work as a qualified Aircraft Engineer.

The Diploma, by incorporating the training and assessments required by CASA for a licence outcome , ensures that once you have met CASA’s other licence requirements (such as stipulated periods of employment) you will be fully prepared to obtain your Aircraft Engineer Licence.

In undertaking the combined programme, you will graduate with both a Certificate IV and a Diploma of Aeroskills, with either or both of your chosen specialisations. For diploma graduates, no further basic training or assessments are required before seeking a licence!

CASA English Language Criteria

Aircraft maintenance trainees should also be aware that, according to CASR Part 66 AMC CASR 66.025 /GM CASR 66.025, all personnel wishing to hold an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence will be required to provide evidence to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority that they have achieved a suitable English language proficiency level.

An applicant for a maintenance certification licence must be able to read, write and converse in English to a level that CASA is satisfied is sufficient to enable the applicant to safely exercise the privileges of the licence applied for. The level of knowledge would be such that the licence holder is able to:

  • read and understand the instructions and technical manuals in use within the organisation;
  • make written technical entries and any maintenance documentation entries, which can be understood by those with whom they are normally required to communicate;
  • read and understand the maintenance organisation procedures; and

CASA Medical Criteria for Licencing

The following information is relevant to anyone considering applying to CASA for an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s Licence in the future.

GM CASR 66.025 – Grant of Licence

If an applicant for a Part 66 aircraft engineer licence has at the time of application a medically significant condition that they consider to be safety-relevant, the applicant must under paragraph 66.020 (2) (e) of the CASR, specify the medical condition to CASA on the approved licence application form.

A medically significant condition includes:

a) any of the following (no matter how minor):

i. any illness or injury;

ii. any bodily infirmity, defect or incapacity;

iii. any mental infirmity, defect or incapacity;

iv. any sequela of an illness, injury, infirmity, defect or incapacity mentioned in subparagraph (i), (ii) or (iii); and

b) any abnormal psychological state; and

c) drug addiction and drug dependence; and

d) for a woman — pregnancy and the physiological and psychological consequences of pregnancy or of termination of pregnancy.

Safety-relevant is defined at regulation 67.015 of the CASR and means: a medically significant condition is safety-relevant if it reduces, or is likely to reduce, the ability of someone who has it to exercise a privilege conferred or to be conferred, or to perform a duty imposed or to be imposed, by a licence that he or she holds or has applied for.

For example: if an applicant for a category B2 avionics licence knowingly suffers from colour blindness and decides that their ability to perform their work may be affected by this condition, they would be obliged to consult with a medical practitioner and declare that condition, together with a report from the medical practitioner that describes the condition, to CASA at the time of licence application.
