Course Overview

Do you have a genuine interest in the aviation industry and want an exciting career working with aircrafts?

Then make your dreams a reality with this pre-apprenticeship course that will prepare you for a long and successful career.

The Certificate II in Aeroskills will take you on a journey through the industry, giving you hands-on experience working with the mechanics, structure, composites and surface finishing of actual plane parts.

You’ll gain a range of theoretical and practical knowledge in fields like aircraft airframe construction, maintenance of mechanical components, aircraft hydraulic and pneumatic systems and so many more.

Taught full-time for a six-month period, you’ll attend classes five days a week and be guided by our expert teachers who will support you every step of the way, helping you build confidence to move your studies along.

When you’re finished, you’ll be able to get credits towards the first year of a Certificate IV Apprenticeship, Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). But that’s not the only option available to you.

You might also choose to study a Certificate IV Aeroskills (Avionics) (not offered at TAFE Gippsland), or a Certificate IV Aeroskills (Mechanical), and we will be here to help you make all of those decisions when you’re ready – because we understand making decisions about your future takes time and thought.

Get stuck into this exciting industry and you’ll be on the right pathway to secure an apprenticeship in something you’re passionate about.
