Application of the Unit

This unit requires application of skills and knowledge relating to the requirements for the completion and processing of documentation during, and on completion of, aviation maintenance activities.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

Not applicable.

Pre-Requisites

MEA105C

Apply quality standards applicable to aviation maintenance processes

Employability Skills Information

This unit contains employability skills.

Elements and Performance Criteria Pre-Content

Elements describe the essential outcomes of a unit of competency.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the required skills and knowledge section and the range statement. Assessment of performance is to be consistent with the evidence guide.

Elements and Performance Criteria

1. Interpret documentation

1.1. Documentation  requirements are determined and accessed, where necessary, from relevant sources in accordance with regulatory and enterprise procedures

1.2. Information contained in existing documentation is interpreted correctly and, where necessary, requirements carried out in accordance with regulatory and enterprise procedures 

2. Complete documentation

2.1. Information requirements for new documentation or updating of existing documentation are determined to allow for accurate completion of records

2.2. Documentation is completed accurately and clearly to enable information to be easily read or interpreted

3. Store and distribute documentation

3.1. All procedures for storing and distributing documentation are followed to ensure ready access when required in accordance with regulatory and enterprise procedures

Required Skills and Knowledge

Required skills 

Look for evidence that confirms skills in:

  • identification and accurate completion of industry documentation associated with aircraft/aircraft component maintenance, repair, overhaul and modification activities, industry regulatory reports and OHS hazard reporting formats
  • handling industry documentation appropriately to ensure that records are accurately processed, forwarded and/or stored as required by industry and enterprise regulations

Required knowledge 

Look for evidence that confirms knowledge of:

  • maintenance practice terminology and the associated relationship with industry documentation, i.e. scheduled and unscheduled servicing, aircraft/component lifing, i.e. on condition, life expired, throwaway, repair and overhaul

Evidence Guide

The Evidence Guide provides advice on assessment and must be read in conjunction with the performance criteria, required skills and knowledge, range statement and the Assessment Guidelines for the Training Package.

Overview of assessment 

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to correctly complete and process maintenance documentation applicable to maintenance tasks that are being performed.

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

It is essential that information generated in the process of completing paperwork is in a form which is acceptable to the workplace environment and regulatory requirements in accordance with the relevant aircraft publications/maintenance regulations/orders and standards and practices.

Evidence of underlying knowledge and skills associated with the interpretation and completion of paperwork is required to supplement evidence of appropriate levels of literacy and numeracy, associated with presenting clear and concise information.

A person cannot be assessed as competent until it can be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the workplace assessor that the relevant elements of the unit of competency are being achieved under routine supervision on at least one type of documentation from each of Groups 1 and 2 from the Range Statement.

This shall be established via the records in the Log of Industrial Experience and Achievement or, where appropriate, an equivalent Industry .

Context of and specific resources for assessment 

Competency should be assessed in the work environment, or by use of simulated activities, covering the interpretation, use and completion of aircraft maintenance documentation in the maintenance environment in accordance with relevant aircraft publications/maintenance regulations/orders and standards and practices.

This unit must be linked in its assessment and application to those that apply to the actual maintenance of aircraft.

Method of assessment 

Guidance information for assessment 

Range Statement
