Other Ranks (Technical)
Duration: 63 Weeks
Following completion of Military (Recruit) Training and a Sea Survival and Ship Safety Course of one week you will complete Aviation Technician Avionics training.
The Aviation Technician Avionics training component of the apprenticeship is conducted at the Royal Australian Air Force's Technical Training Facility (RAAF Base Wagga Wagga , NSW) and consists of theory and practical instruction in workshops and laboratories.
The course content has been designed to meet the Naval requirements for an Aviation Technician sailor, who is capable of immediate employment in an operational squadron at the Naval Air Station at HMAS ALBATROSS (Nowra, NSW).
Naval training fully embraces the National Aerospace curriculum and includes some Navy specific modules where appropriate. Graduating students will have received academic training encompassing:
- the full civilian requirement for Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) Avionics;
- a number of competencies (not the full range) from Avionics 'workshop' stream; and
- a number of competencies (not the full range) from the 'Mechanical' stream as cross trade training.
