Qualification Description

The qualification applies to individuals seeking the grant of a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) B2 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence covering the supervision, performance and certification of avionic maintenance on aircraft that are type-rated by CASA for maintenance purposes.

The qualification satisfies CASA requirements for the grant, under Civil Aviation Safety Regulation (CASR) Part 66, of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence B2 when the skills and knowledge requirements align with CASA syllabus requirements in the Companion Volume CASA Interface and training has been delivered in accordance with the requirements of CASR Part 147. It consists of:

  • common and technical stream units required at Certificate IV level in the aircraft maintenance stream
  • additional Diploma level common and imported units that cover supervisor level work health and safety (WHS) competency plus competencies required by CASA for the exercise of licence privileges
  • Diploma level avionic technical stream units covering advanced fault diagnosis and aircraft weight and balance calculation.

Credits are also provided towards the MEA50315 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics) and the MEA60115 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics).
