Modification History

Release 2 - Correction to error of unit title in Group A (Aircraft Maintenance Stream) MEA213 Inspect, test and troubleshoot advanced aircraft instrument systems and components.

Qualification Description

This qualification applies to employees of Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisations (CAMOs) or to members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) who perform scheduled inspections, fault diagnosis and repair, and modification of aircraft electrical, instrument and radio systems and system components.

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 avionic component repair and overhaul performed in workshops. These outcomes are defined in two streams:

  • aircraft maintenance stream
  • component maintenance workshop stream.

The qualification consists of:

  • common units that apply to all Aeroskills specialist streams at Certificate III and IV levels
  • avionic technical stream units relating to either aircraft avionic system and component maintenance or to component repair and overhaul
  • one mechanical technical stream unit that is applicable to the aircraft maintenance stream
  • one imported unit that is applicable to the aircraft maintenance stream.

Because of the wide application of this qualification there is considerable flexibility in the selection of technical stream units and individuals should be mindful of their future career aspirations when selecting units for, in particular, the aircraft maintenance stream. Provided that the correct elective units are selected, the qualification articulates with the Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) which qualifies individuals for the grant by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) of a B2 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence.

The qualification also provides credits towards the MEA50315 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics) and the MEA60115 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics).
