Maintenance Controller Course

Many owners and operators wish to increase their understanding of the requirements for the maintenance of their aircraft. The Maintenance Controller Course is attended by a wide range of aviation participants, from airline maintenance planners to private aircraft owners.

The Course is ideal for people in Part 119/135 aviation organisations who are designated as the Senior Person responsible for the control and direction of maintenance (the 'Maintenance Controller'). It is also intended for others in aviation that have an interest in the planning and direction of maintenance.

The course is in two parts:

Part One is a pre-workshop self-paced learning module. The aim is to introduce you to, or refresh your knowledge of, the Rules that provide the foundation for aviation safety in New Zealand. You will require access to the CAA web site when working through the pre-workshop module.

Part Two is a two-day workshop. This is designed to be hands-on and practical. Both parts complement each other and will enable you to get the most out of the Maintenance Controllers' Course.

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), in conjunction with ServiceIQ the Industry Training Organisation (ITO), have written 'Units of Learning' for the course registered with the NZQA.

Once you have passed the Maintenance Controller course exam may wish to register (within 90 days of the course date) with ServiceIQ for the National Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering (Maintenance Control) level 4

Within 12 months of the Maintenance Control course date you need to have successfully completed a competency assessment.

All participants that are assessed as 'competent' in all the required Units, will be issued with a National Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering (Maintenance Control).
