Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) - MEA50118
Nationally Recognised Course
The Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) course is designed for clients seeking a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) B2 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence which covers the supervision, performance and certification of avionic maintenance on aircraft that are type-rated by CASA for maintenance purposes.
This qualification consists of common and technical stream units required at Certificate IV level in the aircraft maintenance stream, Diploma level common and imported units and Diploma level avionic technical stream units. The Diploma level units of competencies will cover supervisor level work health and safety (WHS), licence privileges, advanced fault diagnosis and aircraft weight and balance calculations. This qualification provides a number of credits towards a Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics) - MEA50318 and an Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Avionics) - MEA60118.
Practical Experience Requirements:
As outlined in the CASA Part 66 Manual of Standards section 66.A.30; an applicant for a B2 aircraft engineer licence must have acquired four (4) years of practical maintenance experience in carrying out maintenance on operating aircraft and in training. At least one (1) year of the practical maintenance experience required for an initial issue of an aircraft licence must be:
