We train approximately 200 students per year in Certificate II, IV and Diploma – which includes trade training. Our location and facilities are the perfect base to start your career in aircraft maintenance. An interesting fact from the University of New South Wales suggests that, in the longer term, the labour market for aircraft maintenance engineers may tighten. By 2025, they estimate a “30 per cent global workforce shortfall in aircraft maintenance capacity, with Australia and the Asia Pacific region particularly hard hit” (University of New South Wales, ‘The Future of Aircraft Maintenance in Australia’, October 2015.)
Watch Jake Sheppeard’s story and choice to take on a career in this industry, rather than going to University!! “Learning and Earning” while completing his trade qualification in Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Mechanical), he is successfully building a career with BAE Systems.
