Pre-Apprenticeship Courses

Train with the largest CASR and EASA Part 147 approved Maintenance Training Organisation in Australia.

Our aeroskills pre-vocational courses provide essential training required to begin a career in aircraft maintenance engineering. Our instructors are highly experienced professionals, from Commercial and Defense aviation and aerospace industries.

Aviation Australia holds funding approval with the Queensland Government for pre-vocational training in the below qualifications:

  • Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Avionics) MEA40618
  • Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Mechanical) MEA40718
  • Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Structures) MEA41318

The course is designed so graduating students will leave apprenticeship-ready. We deliver the essential pre-apprenticeship, underpinning vocational theory training towards the listed Certificate IV qualifications. This gives students the basic skills and knowledge to move directly into an apprenticeship/traineeship to continue on their pathway to becoming an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) or Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME).

The pre-vocational training components are aligned to CASR Part 66 requirements. This allows students to not only complete training towards a vocational outcome, but in addition, achieve a CASA Certificate of Recognition for Part 66 examinations; which can be used towards a future Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME) outcome.
