MEA50418 Diploma of

Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical)

Full time duration: up to 2 years ­  Your fee estimate*:

This qualification applies to individuals employed in aviation maintenance management fields in both the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and Australian Defence Force (ADF) regulatory environments in jobs such as mechanical maintenance team leaders, maintenance planners, spares assessors, repairable item managers and technical authors. It must be emphasised that many of the maintenance management positions applicable to the qualification have additional experience requirements specified in airworthiness regulations and only a limited range of employment opportunities may be available to those who do not have extensive prior aviation maintenance experience. For this reason the qualification has entry requirements.

The qualification consists of:

  • eleven (11) core units that provide competencies applicable to aviation maintenance managers
  • one (1) or two (2) elective units chosen according to employment need.

Credit is provided towards the MEA60218 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical).

This qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the ADF and CASA. Any regulatory/licensing requirements associated with any MEA units of competency must be met.
