  • Successful completion of Sigma Aerospace College Core Skills Aptitude Test.

 

Computing

Students on this course require computer access for learning purposes and to complete course assessments. Learners are expected to have at least intermediate computer skills in programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook and know how to use the Internet to access information. An active email address for correspondence and training requirements is imperative.

Suggested hardware, software, and Internet requirements include:

  • Desktop or laptop (iPads, tablets, etc may be used, but some software may not function reliably on these devices)
  • Microsoft Office (or similar)
  • PDF viewing software
  • Reliable internet connection (preferably a wired connection as mobile hotspots tend to be too unreliable), capable of running programs such as MS Teams or Zoom, and able to upload and download PDF files
  • A web camera and a speaker

All other learner resources and materials are provided through the learner aXcelerate portal, Learner Guides, Assessment, Unit PowerPoint slides and PDF resources.

Important!

This course does NOT include practical training and is only for working aircraft engineers. Practical competencies must be met via Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL). To attain the practical competencies associated with this course, you will be expected to upload the following documentation:

  • Related Log of Industrial Experience pages
  • Journal documents signed by your supervisor
  • Work History Sheets
  • Any Supervisor Signature Registers
  • Type Course Syllabus and Certificates
  • Related Industry Maintenance documentation
  • Commonwealth Statutory Declaration etc

 

To enrol in this qualification you must have access to aircraft & maintenance facilities to complete the practical component – otherwise you are ineligible to enrol and may result in forfeiture of any fees paid.

Critical Notes:

  1. Students looking to accelerate the processing of their RPL report will need to pay in full upfront.
  2. If you believe you have valid previous Aeroskills qualifications, units of competency, or are transferring from another provider and wondering if you can get a discount, select the ‘Pay by Invoice’ option at checkout and following the Client RPL Document Upload process, we will assess if any industry discount applies (without guarantee) and revise the invoice, however this will slow down the process of receiving your initial RPL report.
  3. Initial RPL report, career or training advice and guidance will only be released following payment of tuition fees in full.
