Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) - MEA50118

Nationally Recognised Course

Course Description:

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. On successful completion students will be eligible to apply to CASA for a Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence, due to individual circumstances this course does not guarantee a successful application and licence outcome.

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 two (2) years of practical maintenance experience in carrying out maintenance on operating aircraft (if they have completed a category training course with an Maintenance Training Organisation). At least one (1) year of the practical maintenance experience required for an initial issue of an aircraft licence must be:

  • Maintenance experience on aircraft relevant to the category or subcategory for which the licence was sought; and
  • Accumulated immediately before making the application for the licence
