Online programme.

Apply knowledge of aircraft engineering knowledge to the certification of aeronautical maintenance.

This is a stand-alone Training Scheme and like the others, can be studied flexibly, online and independently while working as an aircraft maintenance engineer. This will allow you to continue full-time employment while working towards completing your CAA examinations – a compulsory requirement for licensing. 

This course helps students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary associated with aeronautical engineering knowledge necessary to maintain aircraft.

NZQA Unit Standard 20893 will be awarded after the successful completion of the AMEL Aeronautical Engineering Knowledge Exam 2.

You will cover:

  • Aircraft Drawings
  • Metrology
  • Engineering Tooling
  • Workshop Practice A/C Standard Hardware
  • Aircraft Cleaning
  • A/C Painting & Finishing
  • Gasses and Compounds
  • A/C Ground Handling

How do training schemes work?

This Training Scheme is studied online so you can fit it around your work commitments and is available for 56 weeks from enrolment. You should allow approximately 23 hours per week of self-directed learning per course.

Training Schemes allow you to apply and pay for one subject at a time, this allows you can pass the ASPEQ (CAA) exam and enrol on the next Training Scheme of your choice.

NMIT has been teaching aeronautical engineering maintenance for many years and is New Zealand's first approved NZCAA Part 147 Certified Maintenance Training Organisation.
