Modification History

Release 1. Supersedes and equivalent to MEA50315 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics). Unit codes updated.

Qualification Description

This qualification applies to individuals employed in aviation maintenance management fields in both the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and Australian Defence Force (ADF) regulatory environments in jobs such as avionic maintenance team leaders, maintenance planners, spares assessors, repairable item managers and technical authors. It must be emphasised that many of the maintenance management positions applicable to the qualification have additional experience requirements specified in airworthiness regulations and only a limited range of employment opportunities may be available to those who do not have extensive prior aviation maintenance experience. For this reason the qualification has entry requirements.

The qualification consists of:

  • eleven (11) core units that provide competencies applicable to aviation maintenance managers
  • one (1) or (2) elective units chosen according to employment need.

Credit is provided towards the MEA60115 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics).

This qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the ADF and CASA. Any regulatory/licensing requirements associated with any MEA units of competency must be met.

Entry Requirements

Individuals seeking this qualification must meet at least one of the following entry criteria:

  • at least five years current aviation avionic maintenance experience
  • Maintenance Engineer Licence (Avionics) issued by CASA
  • Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Avionics).

Packaging Rules

To be awarded the MEA50318 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics), competency must be demonstrated in a total of twelve (12)  or thirteen (13)  units of competency.

All units must be chosen as specified under the conditions set out below:

  • eleven (11)  core Diploma level common, engineering and imported units
  • one (1)  or two (2)  elective Diploma level common units from Group A.
