The AISC approved the final draft MEA Aeroskills Training Package components for the Aircraft Maintenance Subcategory B1 Licences Project at the 13 August 2019 meeting. MEA50219 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) is now live on training.gov.au as part of Release 4.0 of the MEA Aeroskills Training Package.

IBSA Manufacturing, in consultation with the Aerospace IRC, established 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 operated under the direction of the IRC and comprised of organisations and nominated individuals with significant expertise and knowledge working within the industry.

This project involved the review of 39 units of competency and the MEA50215 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical), to include 3 units to facilitate pathways to B1.2 and B1.4 licences.

The project also involved development of new content and redevelopment of existing content to address the following areas:

  • align MEA50215 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) to CASA subcategories licences B1.2 and B1.4.
  • provide pathway opportunities in gaining the CASA sub licences and, where possible, align with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) standards
  • provide access for apprentices to become piston engine aeroplane and helicopter LAMEs.
  • enhance the existing qualification by broadening its applicability to those seeking B1.2 and B1.4 licences within the industry
