Modification History

Release 2 - Total number of units required to achieve qualification corrected from 'forty-one (41) to fifty (50)' to 'thirty-nine (39) to forty-eight (48) '.

Release 1 - New qualification

Qualification Description

This qualification applies to individuals who perform aircraft and aircraft component non-destructive testing (NDT), develop NDT techniques and provide training in NDT in accordance with AS 3669-2006 Non-destructive testing – Qualification and approval of personnel – Aerospace at Level 3. The qualification also meets the regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

The requirement for the awarding of MEA60315 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Non-Destructive Testing is demonstrated competency in listed units of competency under the conditions set out below. It consists of core units and electives chosen from Electives Group A.

Core units include:

  • preliminary common and technical stream units for individuals who do not have a Certificate IV in Aeroskills or the Diploma of Aeroskills (Non-Destructive Testing)
  • mandatory units consisting of:
  • common and technical stream units that relate to the aviation maintenance environment
  • technical stream and imported units relating to the NDT work environment
  • imported units that specifically cover the competencies required to perform each relevant NDT technique to the standard specified in AS 3669-2006 Non-destructive testing – Qualification and approval of personnel – Aerospace for Level 2 and 3 personnel
  • imported units that cover competencies in the development, delivery and assessment of training.

Elective Group A units consisting of:

  • common units specific to either CASA or ADF regulatory requirements
  • technical stream and imported units that are applicable to various areas of employment in the NDT field at AS 3669-2006 Non-destructive testing – Qualification and approval of personnel – Aerospace Level 3

Individuals who have a Certificate IV in Aeroskills and/or the Diploma of Aeroskills (Non-Destructive Testing) will already have a significant number of credits towards this qualification.

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

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.
