Public consultation now open, seeking your feedback

The 2019 Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work prepared on behalf of the Aerospace Industry Reference Committee are currently available for review until 8 March 2019.

The Industry Skills Forecast has identified the following skills gaps and emerging skills needs within industry:

  • A critical shortage of Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers in Australia.
  • Alignment of the regulatory frameworks of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and the Australian Qualification Framework provides an opportunity to alleviate skill shortages in the industry.
  • The comprehensiveness of the Case for Change submitted as part of the 2018 Industry Skills Forecast, that requested a complete review of the MEA Aeroskills Training Package and also consider alignment of VET qualification standards to CASA licensing regulations, mean there are no further proposed items for inclusion in the 2019-2023 Proposed Schedule of Work.
