Qualification Description

This qualification applies to members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and to employees of civil Aviation Maintenance Organisations (AMOs) who work on the maintenance of aircraft and personal life support equipment and on the fabrication and maintenance of aircraft furnishings.

The unit typically applies to those who work independently or as part of a team under direct and/or indirect supervision, following set procedures and methods, requiring some discretion and judgement. They are responsible for the quality of their own outputs, and require a high level of analysis and risk assessment within familiar and unfamiliar contexts. High level communications skills are required when fitting individuals with items of personal life support equipment and when determining item fabrication requirements.

The qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Regulatory and licensing requirements associated with MEA units of competency required for this qualification must be met.

Entry Requirements
