Level 5 units cover Maintenance Certifying Technician (Mechanic or Avionic) qualifications for a B1 or B2 aircraft maintenance license. Level 6 (Advanced Diploma) comprises an additional 14 units that should be completed in advanced aviation and engineering subjects. These units are meant to provide the student with a broad educational base with emphasis on core aviation principles. Level 7 (applied Bachelor) comprises 9 units that will complete the under graduate level of higher education in aviation maintenance.
