Release 1 - New qualification

Qualification Description

The qualification applies to individuals seeking the grant of a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) B1 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence covering the supervision, performance and certification of airframe, engine, electrical and structural maintenance on aircraft that are type-rated by CASA for maintenance purposes.

The requirement for the awarding of MEA50215 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) is demonstrated competency in listed units of competency under the conditions set out below. The listed units also satisfy CASA requirements for the grant, under Civil Aviation Regulation (CASR) Part 66, of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer B1 Licences in sub-categories B1.1 and B1.3 when the skills and knowledge requirements align with CASA syllabus requirements in the Companion Volume and CASA Interface and training has been delivered in accordance with the requirements of CASR Part 147.

The qualification consists of:

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

The qualification also provides credits towards the MEA50415 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical) and the MEA60215 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical).
