The Parafield campus, located at Parafield airport, offers Aeroskills training in:
- Certificate II,
- Certificate IV Aeroskills (Mechatronicis)
- Certificate IV Aeroskills (Avionics)
- Certificate IV Aeroskills (Mechanical)
- Certificate IV Aeroskills (Structures)
- Diploma in Aeroskills (Avionics)
- Diploma in Aeroskills (Maintenance)
The Diploma for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) achieves the new standards of EASA A, B1 and B2 license levels (LAME).
The above “Nationally” endorsed engineering courses are focused on aviation engineering standards and practices for all three sectors of aviation maintenance and airworthiness; RPT (Regular Public Transport), GA (General Aviation) and Military. The course delivery is through the implementation of the CASA syllabus (underpinning knowledge modules) which complements the Aeroskills competency based training.
The competency based training is required by the aviation engineering industry addressing all three main areas of maintenance (Line, Heavy and Workshop) enabling the successful student to be productive at a trade and license level on completion of the selected qualification.
The Certificate IV offers specialisation in either avionics, mechanial or structural aspects. This Certificate provides students with a practical vocational introduction and first step leading to a Licence outcome at Diploma level.
The Diploma in Aeroskills (Avionics) provides qualification to individuals seeking the grant of a CASA B2 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence covering the supervision, performance and certification of avionic maintenance on aircraft that are type-rated by CASA for maintenance purposes.
Wheras the Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) enables individuals to seek the granting of a CASA B1 Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Licence covering the supervision, performance and certification of airframe, engine, electrical and structural maintenance on aircraft that are type-rated by CASA for maintenance purposes.
