Description

This qualification applies to members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and to employees of civil Aviation Maintenance Organisations (AMOs) who work on the maintenance of aircraft and personal life support equipment and on the fabrication and maintenance of aircraft furnishings.

High level communications skills are required when fitting individuals with items of personal life support equipment and when determining item fabrication requirements.

The qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).
