Course details


If you are a looking for higher education or a change into an exciting industry, you've come to the right place. The Academy of Learning's integrated and internationally recognised aircraft maintenance programme is a great place to start.

Students begin by studying a NZQA approved, 36-week, Level 3 Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering. Then into the higher Level 5 Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering. The Diploma incorporates the curriculum and examinations required to hold an EASA aircraft maintenance engineers licence. Further study pathways to degree level are available for graduates of the Diploma.

What will you do?

You will undertake an aviation specific, 82 week course that is designed to deliver high quality, hands on aviation training. You will train alongside industry professionals, in the same facilities with the same professional facilitators as Air New Zealand's own staff.

What do we do?

Air New Zealand Academy of Learning provides world-class pre-employment training for people looking to enter the aviation industry. We leverage learnings and innovation from the Air New Zealand operational environment which transfer to our training programmes, ensuring they are best fit for industry.

Graduate Information

On Job Experience

When both qualifications are completed students will receive their EASA approved basic course certificate. Current regulations advise graduates they will need to demonstrate 2 years of relevant experience in an EASA Part 145 organisation prior to making their application for an aircraft maintenance engineers licence.


Graduates of this course will typically look to seek employment with an aviation maintenance company to build experience before applying for their aircraft maintenance engineers licence.

Alternatively students may remain in study and complete a degree qualification. The Aviation Institute has established pathways to two international universities.

Courses typically start 3 times per year, in January or February, May or June, and September or October.
