Aviation Australia’s first Tasmanian apprentice receives B2 licence


Joshua continues his work at Rotor Lift Hobart after receiving his B2 licence

Aviation Australia became an approved provider with Skills Tasmania with User Choice funding for the Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) and Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) in May last year. Since then we’ve had six apprentices with Joshua Dwyer the first to complete the Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) last month and has now received his B2 licence.

During Joshua’s apprenticeship he made contact with Aviation Australia and started lobbying to Skills Tasmania by highlighting the challenges apprentices were facing and how Aviation Australia were in a position to help.

“I’d like to think that the pathway for Tasmania Aeroskills Apprentices’ is now a little easier in a system that can be complicated and frustrating at times,” Joshua stated.

Joshua found the training at Aviation Australia to be of a high quality, stating “The student resources were logically put together and meant that I was able to self-study for a lot of the subjects which allowed me to complete them in a timeframe that suited me. For a father of two small children, this was very much appreciated.”

“I found the process that Aviation Australia had put in place, easy to work with and well communicated.  While rigid in some areas, these were communicated appropriately and had a logical set of steps that could be followed to end up in a well-defined outcome,” said Joshua.

Joshua works for Rotor Lift Aviation in Hobart and will continue working there now that he’s completed his apprenticeship. His next step is to obtain the appropriate aircraft type ratings required at Rotor Lift.

Aviation Australia would like to thank Joshua for his support, we’re delighted to have been able to help Tasmanian apprentices with their studies.

We congratulate Joshua on gaining his B2 licence and wish him all the best in the future.
