Extended transition period: MEA qualifications

20 June 2023

In some cases, ASQA is empowered to approve transition periods longer than those detailed in Clauses 1.26 (a), (b) and (c) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015.

In accordance with the Guidance for Providers – Learner Transition, ASQA will consider applications for a longer transition period where it can be demonstrated that there would be genuine disadvantage to a cohort of learners if such an extension was not approved.

ASQA has recently approved an extended transition period for the following MEA qualifications -

  • MEA30318 Certificate III in Aircraft Life Support and Furnishing
  • MEA40918 Certificate IV in Aircraft Surface Finishing
  • MEA41318 Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Structures)

The extended training, assessment and certification issuance period for these qualifications ends on 21 November 2024. It applies to all providers for the purpose of training students who had already commenced these qualifications as at 20 November 2023.

ASQA consulted with the VRQA and TAC WA for this extended transition request.

This qualification will remain on the provider’s scope of registration until the end of the extended transition period.
