Queensland Institute For Aviation Engineering (QIAE) says, an Australian aviation engineering training company that enables aspiring pilots to undertake the necessary training associated with obtaining your qualification (a Certificate IV in Aeroskills), is today claiming it has the best aviation apprenticeship in the world.
“That’s an achievement we are proud of and will do whatever takes, within reason of course, to deliver on that expectation,” says the site’s owner, who has been providing a training programme that ensures trainees’ gain both experience and confidence by means of their participation within an active working environment.
As a registered aviation training provider, QIAE is one of the top aviation school that provides a its students with a complete “study” component to facilitate their apprenticeship.
“In addition to a comprehensive training that seamlessly integrated theoretical and technical subjects, aviation students will receive from QIAE invaluable lessons in adaptability, problem solving, independent thinking, responsibility, leadership, communication and teamwork.
Considering the various types of apprenticeships QIAE provides, the company’s spokesperson said students may choose to undertake either a full-time or a part-time aviation engineering apprenticeships.
Full-time apprentices work and train on full-time basis, usually from 36 to 38 hours a week, whereas part-time apprentices work and train for no less than 15 hours each week (averaged over a four week cycle).
Funding for these programmes, according to the spokesperson, are being provided by the Australian Government, which has recently recognised the growing need to address the significant skill shortages apparent within the contemporary workforce. “Therefore, they have instituted a number of financial incentives for apprentices, including accommodation allowances and apprenticeship trade bonuses,
notes the source.
However, in accessing these government-sponsored financial incentives it is said to dependent upon the applicant’s circumstance. Eligibility for these government reimbursements to cover training costs. Details about this can be accessed via the Australian Government Apprenticeships website, or persons could ask Centrelink for information on the Youth Allowance, Austudy and ABSTUDY.
In order to enter into an apprenticeship, applicants must first engage an employer (either a business within the aviation industry or a group training organisation who will place the applicant with various businesses to gain on-the-job experience). Regardless of which the applicant choose, his or her employer is responsible for the payment of paying the applicant’s wages.
“Once you have secured an employer, you can discuss with them your desire to nominate QIAE as your training provider. Once you have selected your training provider, your employer is then responsible for registering you with the Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) and assisting you in lodging a training contract with them,” explained the site’s owner.
However, prior to the end of the trainee’s probationary period with an employer (typically 90 days in duration) QIAE will assist his or her both in the development of their training plan. “This plan identifies what is expected of you and your employer, and will help to ensure the student learn and can competently demonstrate all the necessary skills he or she requires in order to be awarded your qualification.
Now, with so many aviation schools offering both domestic and international training, the question naturally arises” Why should I elect QIAE as my training organisation?”
In answering the question, QIAE responded that all three trade schemes belonging to the Certificate IV in Aeroskills course delivered at QIAE are accredited by the Queensland Government. Furthermore, the course and it associated subjects align with the National Aeroskills Competency Standards and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) syllabus for Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (LAME). What’s more, QIAE’s Founder and Managing Director, Tank Macpherson was a co-writer in the National Training Curriculum that is now used by all Aviation Maintenance Schools, Airlines and the Defence Forces, so you know you’re in safe hands.
