RPL for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers

Recognition of Prior Learning with ATAE allows Engineers in Aircraft Maintenance to upskill or have current skills recognised to Australia’s Aviation qualifications. These qualifications come from the Australian Aeroskills Training Package and the CASA Part 66 Manual of Standards (MOS) for Licencing.

At ATAE, we offer RPL against the following qualifications:

  • Certificate IV Aeroskills (Mechanical) MEA40715

  • Certificate IV Aeroskills (Avionics) MEA40615

  • Certificate IV Aeroskills (Structures) MEA41315

  • Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) MEA50115

  • Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) MEA50215

ATAE is also a Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO). This means we can RPL against qualifications and deliver training for achieving a Licence outcome. Direct RPL can be accepted from Europe (EASA member states) and United Arab Emirates (GCAA).

ATAE’s scope for RPL against CASA Part 66 Category Licences are:

  • A1 and B1.1 aeroplanes turbine.

  • A2 and B1.2 aeroplanes piston.

  • A3 and B1.3 helicopters turbine.

  • A4 and B1.4 helicopters piston.

  • B2 Avionics

RPL is available to anyone who is looking to attain recognition (either fully or partially) against any of the qualifications listed above. Before committing to an RPL assessment you can speak with an ATAE RPL assessor to determine whether it will be worth your while. 

How long does it take?

After applying, you can expect your initial response within 2 weeks.

As engineers ourselves, we understand the burden of working shifts and long hours so we have specially designed our RPL service to allow you to study at your own pace around your work schedule.

We believe you should be able to expect reliable, prompt and clear communication. Our team treats our colleagues out in the industry with the respect they deserve by being responsive and pro-active.

If we say we’re going to do something for you, we will do it!

Service Fees

This programme is fee-for-service based. We charge an initial $550 at the time of application that covers your initial RPL Report and the first 2 hours labour.

The online enrolment form has a convenient Credit Card section or alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer straight after you lodge your enrolment. Please note that we can not commence working on your RPL Report until receiving the initial payment.

Some RPL cases are more complex than others. If we need to do more work on your case, we charge a reasonable $220 per hour.

Tip!: You can keep costs to a minimum by sending only the required evidence clearly scanned and certified and by mapping your own practical experience to the MEA units of competency.

Practical Evidence Guide

Practical Evidence gained by Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be ascertained by various means such as written logs of experience, copies of Task Cards, Simulated Tasks and Consolidated Training. Other means such as Competency Letters from Employers or Trainers may be used for supplementary evidence. If any evidence of the above is presented, all practical evidence must be certified true copies of unless originals are sighted and signed by ATAE Approved Staff.

How can I give Practical Evidence?
Practical evidence can be assessed for RPL in many ways. The most accepted and used method is logged evidence, this can be in the form of J.O.E, S.O.E, O.J.T or any other approved log book. We can provide an approved Journal for logging practical evidence. Practical Units can be mapped from different types of logs. CASA use MEA Units from Manufacturing Skills Australia’s Aeroskills Package. Whether mapping is carried out or not may cause added RPL labour charges.

Who can sign my log book?
All signatures for certifying an entry must be registered on a Supervisors Signature Register and the certifier must hold the unit of competency they are signing for. E.g. if gathering evidence for a B Licence a LAME with the same Category must sign for the task carried out.

What information is needed for each entry?
The Journal History Sheets will provide what is needed for information on a practical unit entry; Date, Job number, Rego, Supervision level Etc. We will provide electronic copies of the Work History Sheets, as well as a Journal Writing Guide.

Theory Evidence Guide

Theory Evidence can come from a wide range of different documentation, Whether International, Domestic, Military or Civilian. Accepting the right evidence for Recognition Of Prior Learning (RPL) will determine the amount of extra Theory Training needed. All Theory requirements Certificate IV in Aeroskills are on training.gov.au website. All CASA Part 66 Theory requirements are contained within the CASA Part 66 Manual Of Standards (MOS). If any Theory Evidence is presented it must be submitted as certified true copies of, unless originals are sighted and signed by ATAE Approved Staff.

How can I give Theory Evidence?
Theory Evidence can be accepted if proven to be relevant to the Qualification and include the transcript detailing each sub module/unit. Depending on the level of the qualification the award of credit, partial credit or supplementary credit may be used.

Who can deliver approved Theory
Anyone who has passed CASA Basics Exams or Part 147 Modules within 10 years of the first Module/exam will be given full RPL credit. ATAE offers Theory Training as an Approved CASA Part 147 Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO). Any non-Part 147 Theory evidence submitted may be accepted with a Challenge Test. A Challenge Test will test current theory knowledge of a subject with an exam that is significantly shorter than the full exam, but over the entire scope of the subject.

What type of Theory can I use?
Theory can come from many different sources, the most common are those that can be easily mapped to the Aeroskills training Package. For a trade level Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME), the Certificate IV in Aeroskills is awarded. For someone seeking a CASA Category Licence, the Diploma of Aeroskills is awarded (only B1.1, B1.3 and B2 currently).
