Modification History

Release 2 - Licensing requirements clarified. New elective MEA147A added to Elective Units Group A - equivalent

Release 1 - Unit codes updated as required. Imported financial management elective unit replaced by MEA146A - equivalent

Description

This qualification may be of use to individuals employed in managerial positions in both the civil and ADF regulatory environments in the fields of avionic maintenance management and Integrated Logistic Support (ILS). It should also be noted that most of the maintenance management positions applicable to this qualification have airworthiness regulatory requirements regarding aviation maintenance experience. There is therefore no direct entry pathway to the qualification.

The qualification consists of:

  • twenty five (25) common units and two (2) imported units, seventeen (17) of which are elective, that provide general competencies applicable to aviation maintenance managers
  • four (4) para-professional avionic engineering units.

With regard to the employability skills, due to the high proportion of electives required by this qualification, the industry/enterprise requirements described for each employability skill are representative of the aviation maintenance industry in general and may not reflect specific job roles. Learning and assessment strategies for this qualification should be based on the requirements of the units of competency for this qualification.

Pathways Information

Not applicable.

Licensing/Regulatory Information

This qualification complies with airworthiness regulatory requirements of CASA and the ADF.

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