Description

This qualification applies to individuals who perform non-destructive testing (NDT) on aircraft and aircraft components in accordance with AS 3669-2006 Non-destructive testing – Qualification and approval of personnel – Aerospace at Level 2 and in compliance with the regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

The requirement for the awarding of MEA50515 Diploma of Aeroskills (Non-Destructive Testing) is demonstrated competency in listed units of competency under the conditions set out below. It consists of core units plus applicable units from electives Group A.

Core units are as follows:

  • preliminary common and technical stream units for individuals who do not have a Certificate IV in Aeroskills
  • mandatory units consisting of:
  • common and technical stream units that relate to the aviation maintenance environment
  • technical stream and imported units relating to the NDT work environment
  • imported units that specifically cover the competencies required to perform each relevant NDT technique to the standard specified in AS 3669-2006 Non-destructive testing – Qualification and approval of personnel – Aerospacefor Level 2 personnel.
  • Elective Group A units consist of:

  • common units specific to either CASA or ADF regulatory requirements
  • technical stream and imported units that are applicable to various areas of employment in the NDT field.
  • The core and elective units provide for two training pathways to the qualification as follows:

  • one that provides for Certificate IV qualified aviation tradespersons to progress to the Diploma level NDT qualification (the career path for uniformed ADF personnel and possibly some civilian personnel)
  • another that provides for progression to Diploma level NDT qualification from direct entry (the career path that may be followed by NDT personnel used by the maintenance organisations other than those operating under the ADF regulatory system).
  • The qualification also provides credits towards the MEA50415 Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical), the MEA60215 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Maintenance Management (Mechanical) and the MEA60315 Advanced Diploma of Aviation Non-Destructive Testing.
