Candidate qualification information
Answers to common qualification and licence transfer questions
How do I acquire an aircraft maintenance qualification?
The majority of our clients prefer that candidates hold a Certificate IV Aeroskills (Mechanical, Structures or Avionics) trade qualification and have completed the relevant apprenticeship.
Alternatively, existing qualifications can be assessed by a Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO) for recognition of prior learning (RPL). The MTO will review your certificates and previous study to determine if a qualification can be issued. This pathway may require additional study, or practical assessment to attain the qualification.
For further information about recognition of prior learning and conversion to a Certificate IV Aeroskills contact Aviation Australia.

How do I transfer my Defence Force or foreign qualifications to an Australian Aircraft Maintenance Engineer licence?
Overseas licence holders seeking recognition of their licence may go to a Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO) that is approved by CASA for Category. Once satisfied that the applicant is fully Category compliant, the Part 147 MTO will compile a report to CASA to enable the overseas licence holder to apply for a Part 66 licence.
