IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to support the Aerospace Industry Reference Committee (IRC) to undertake the Aircraft Maintenance Subcategory B1 Licences Project.


The Aerospace IRC identified that the MEA50215 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) is to be updated to facilitate a pathway for participants seeking CASA Licence sub-categories B1.2 and B1.4. The work will involve the addition of the following three units of competency to the qualification:

  • MEA312 Inspect, test and troubleshoot aircraft fixed wing flight control systems and components
  • MEA313 Inspect, test and troubleshoot piston engine systems and components
  • MEA362 Maintain aircraft vapour cycle air conditioning systems

The Aircraft Maintenance Subcategory B1 Licences Project will also review and redevelop units associated with the Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) based on industry requirements.  Please read the Case for Change for more information on the training package components to be modified as well as the research undertaken to support this project.

It is anticipated that this project will be completed early in 2019.

Project Governance

IBSA Manufacturing, in consultation with the Aerospace IRC, will establish a technical advisory committee (TAC) to provide specific subject matter advice and technical expertise for the development and review of the training package components.

The TAC operates under the direction of the IRC and will comprise of organisations and nominated individuals with significant expertise and knowledge working within the industry.

Methodology and Timelines

This project follows the Training Package Development and Endorsement Process Policy and uses the IBSA Manufacturing Training Package Development Methodology. This process provides robust evidence to support the Australian Industry Skills Committee’s (AISC) decision making process.
