DASR66 RPL Assessment of MEAs

DASA identifies the MEA units of competency required to address DASR MAML exclusions or to address competency gaps for the initial issue of a MAML. At enrolment with Aviation Australia, the candidate will be required to submit evidence of their aircraft maintenance engineering qualifications so that we can conduct an Initial RPL report assessment to identify the specific Part 66 basic knowledge and practical training and assessment requirements.

Once all the requirements have been met, as part of the Final RPL report step, Aviation Australia will certify (to the candidate) with a CASR Part 147 Certificate of Recognition (for any CASR Part 66 exams passed at 75% or above) and a Statement of Attainment for the units of competency achieved. This can then be submitted to DASA as evidence that the candidate has met the knowledge and competency requirements of the MEAs. Aviation Australia’s CASR and EASA Part 66 training and assessments are recognised by the Defence Aviation Safety Authority (DASA).
