RDA Hunter's ME Program Develops New Aeroskills Course

RDA Hunter and TAFE NSW are proposing that local students from the Hunter Region be provided with the opportunity to gain school based training in Aeroskills

With the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF, F-35), Hawke lead-in fighter and both the classic and super hornet maintenance contracts being awarded to Defence organisations in the Williamtown area, there will be significant growth in employment in the local aerospace sector. As well as the recent announcement of Newcastle Airport having facilities to cater for international flights in the near future, we can expect an increase in apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities.

RDA Hunter and TAFE NSW are proposing that local students from the Hunter Region be provided with the opportunity to gain school based training in Aeroskills. This NSW Educational Standards (NESA) endorsed course will provide the Hunter's young people access to the aerospace industry via a Certificate II Aeroskills Pathway in Year 11/12 through EVET and possible school-based traineeship pathways.

The Certificate II Aeroskills (MEA20415) will provide the Hunter’s young people with the skills to perform repair and overhaul tasks on a limited range of electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electro-hydraulic and electro-pneumatic aircraft components.
