Course overview

This qualification is applicable to employees of aircraft maintenance organisations or of specialist aircraft surface finishing organisations who are required to prepare the surfaces of aircraft and aircraft components for the application of surface finishes and to apply paint, specialist finishes and decals or stencils, including aircraft registration markings, national markings and organisational logos.

The units of competency in this qualification are a mix of:

  • common units that apply to all Aeroskills specialist streams at Certificate III and IV levels
  • structures technical stream units relating to aircraft surface finishing
  • imported automotive units relating to the application of paint finishes.

This qualification fully articulates with the MEA40922 Certificate IV in Aircraft Surface Finishing and the common units provide a number of credits towards other Aeroskills qualifications at Certificate III and IV levels.

This qualification applies to workplaces that operate under the airworthiness regulatory systems of the Defence Aviation Safety Authority (DASA) and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Any regulatory/licensing requirements associated with any MEA units of competency must be met.
