Australian College of Aviation’s popular Double Cert IV in Aeroskills delivers a Part 147 aligned qualification majoring in both Avionics and Mechanical. The programme provides the core theory and practical training required for the role of Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. The course is delivered at the Archerfield Airport Tisdall Aviation Centre, providing a unique and immersive learning experience.
Holding a Certificate IV in Aeroskills is the first step towards gaining work as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer. Our custom-developed program is designed to provide the skills and experience demanded by industry, including relevant practical skills.
As a graduate engineer from Australian College of Aviation, you will have the knowledge and skills to start your career as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer, with the option to gain qualifications across the mechanical and/or avionics disciplines. Qualified engineers have incredibly diverse career paths, with the opportunity to working on everything from massive jets to private planes.
Plus, aircraft engineers can work in almost any location – from the biggest cities, to the smallest outback towns. With most commercial aircraft ‘cycling’ multiple times a day, the airframe, avionics, and mechanical components need to be inspected and maintained at regular intervals, with even the smallest components being tracked, checked, and repaired when necessary. Engineers are tasked with troubleshooting complex issues across the electrical, fuel, hydraulic and propulsion systems, to help keep flight operations to complex schedules.
Throughout the course, you will undertake learning across the fundamentals of maths and physics, the principles of flight, plus workshop and hand skills to enable maintenance of individual aircraft components.
You will predominantly carry out examinations, maintenance and repairs of the mechanical components of aircraft such as gas turbine, jet and piston engines, frames, hydraulic, pneumatic, fuel and other associated systems.
Avionics Aircraft Maintenance Engineers carry out work that involves the maintenance and repairs of the electrical components of aircraft such as on board computers, radio, radar and GPS directional equipment.
