New programme.

Develop and apply the knowledge of compass compensation.

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 to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to construct, install and maintain compass systems within aircraft.

NZQA Unit standard 20903 will be awarded after the successful completion of the AMEL Compass Compensation Exam 16.

You will cover:

  • Theory of Magnetism
  • Terrestrial Magnetism
  • Aircraft Magnetism
  • The Compass Base
  • Direct Reading Magnetic Compasses
  • Theory of Compass Compensation
  • Direct reading Compass compensation
  • Direct Reading Compass Compensation Procedures
  • Remote Reading Compass Systems

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.
