TRAINING PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: This course is for learners who have employment
in the aircraft maintenance industry as trainees, apprentices, or tradespersons in the area of
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (Avionics). The outcomes of this course focus on the
underpinning skills and knowledge (off-the-job training) needed to support the Aircraft
Maintenance Engineering (Avionics) competencies set out in the Aeroskills Training
Package. This course is to provide students with the training to become Aircraft Maintenance
Engineers (avionics).

The course covers the removal, installation, repair, overhaul and troubleshooting of:

- aircraft electrical systems and components;
- aircraft instrument systems and components;
- aircraft aiconditioning and pressurisation control systems and components;
- rotary wing and fixed wing flight control systems and components;
- aircraft communication and radio navigation systems components;
- aircraft radar systems and components;
- aircraft oxygen system components.

Subsequently, students can continue in their career path by undertaking higher
qualifications. These, in turn, will increase opportunities for students to enhance their career
paths, towards becoming Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (LAME's) and, in some
cases, Aircraft Maintenance Managers, Aircraft Maintenance Controllers or Chief Engineers.
