Aircraft Line Maintenance | Queensland

The school to work pathway allows school students to take the first step to a career within the aviation industry. The Certificate II in Aircraft Line Maintenance (MEA20518) provides the basic level knowledge and skills required to perform a range of specified maintenance tasks on aircraft on a flight line or at the departure gate.

The VET in Schools program for Year 10 & 11 students is conducted over approximately 2 years. This qualification can lead to future Aeroskills apprenticeships/traineeships and is also a pathway to achieving a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Category A Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence, which allows authorised personnel to release aircraft to service.

The Certificate II in Aircraft Line Maintenance is funded by the Queensland Government through the Certificate 3 Guarantee – Vocational Education and Training in Schools (VETiS) program.

VETiS allows students to undertake nationally recognised training whilst undertaking years 10/11/12 at school. This training can count towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
