enrolment process


The following steps outline our enrolment process.
  • Confirm you will meet the pre-requisite requirements for this course (excluding the Air New Zealand Placement Test, this will be arranged later)
  • Complete this online application form.
  • You will be contacted by the Aviation Institute, and requested to provide supporting documentation (passport copy, recent IELTS or equivalent certificate, and academic/high school transcripts)
  • The Aviation Institute will review your supporting documentation, and arrange for a Placement Test to be conducted online or locally. Depending on demand from the country you are applying from, you may need to travel regionally to attend a Placement Test. 
  • On successful completion of the Placement Test you will be provided with a training agreement and an invoice for the course fees.
  • On receipt of your training agreement and course fees, the Aviation Institute will forward to you and your nearest Immigration New Zealand office a Visa Invitation letter. You should include a copy of this letter with your visa application. Immigration New Zealand has launched ONLINE-Student, a visa application service that allows you to apply, pay fees and upload supporting documents online.
  • Obtain Medical and Travel Insurance covering the period of your travel to/from and stay in New Zealand.
  • Start your aircraft maintenance career!
