Qualification Description

This qualification applies to members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and to employees of Aircraft Maintenance Organisations (AMOs) who are maintaining aircraft and personal life support equipment and aircraft furnishings.

The qualification consists of a number of common units plus mandatory and elective technical stream units, including a number of imported units dealing with explosive ordnance (pyrotechnics) safety and inspection, and with sewing, trimming and use of fabric adhesives.

The qualification articulates with MEA41115 Certificate IV in Aircraft Life Support and Furnishing and the common units and the elective Avionic, Mechanical and Structures Technical Stream units provide a number of credits towards other Aeroskills Certificates at Certificate II, III and IV levels.

This qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the ADF and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Any regulatory/licensing requirements associated with any MEA units of competency must be met.
