3          Specific aircraft type examinations
              The specific aircraft type examinations for licence group 20 in table 1 are those:
(a)   indicated by the symbol # in the column for licence group 20; and
(b)   comprising an assessment of the assembly, functioning and principles of construction of, and the methods and procedures for the maintenance of, the airframe category of the specific aircraft type.
4          Credits and waivers
     (1)     A person is not required to pass the examination in electrical and instrument systems (code BC) for a licence group if the person holds a credit for passing each of the following examinations for the licence group:
(a)   Aircraft general instruments – I (code IA);
(b)   Aircraft general instruments – II (code IZ);
(c)   General electrical systems (code EB).
Note   The examination coded EB is prescribed in the Specification under CAO 100.94 for category electrical. The examinations coded IA and IZ are prescribed in the Specification under CAO 100.95 for category instruments.
  (1A)     A person is not required to pass the examination in Airworthiness administration (code AA) for a licence group if:
(a)   the person has knowledge of Module 10, Aviation Legislation, in Part 3, Appendix I of the Part 66 Manual of Standards (MOS); and
(b)   the person has demonstrated the knowledge by successful examination conducted by a Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO) in accordance with paragraph 66.A.25 (b) of the Part 66 MOS.
Note   CASA approval is dependent on CASA’s satisfaction that, through Module 10, the MTO can train and examine in the comprehensive specifics of Airworthiness administration (code AA) for the licence group.
  (1B)     A person is not required to pass the examination in Structural composites (code FP) for a licence group in category airframes, if:
(a)   the person has successfully completed training and examination in Course AA-27, Composites Repair Techniques (Theory); and
(b)   the training and examination were conducted by Aviation Australia Pty Ltd, trading as Aviation Australia, Aviation Reference Number 580292, in its capacity as the holder of a Certificate of Approval for such training and examination under Part 147 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998.
Note   This course of training and examination was specifically developed, to CASA’s satisfaction, as an alternative to examination in Structural composites (code FP) for a licence group in category airframes.
     (2)     CASA may waive the requirement for the written examination (code FS) mentioned in table 1 for a specific aircraft type if:
(a)   the specific aircraft type is so similar to another aircraft type for which the applicant already holds the category airframes rating that the applicant may be taken to have adequate knowledge of the airframes category for the specific aircraft type; and
(b)   the safety of air navigation will not be affected by the waiver.
     (3)                 CASA may waive the requirement for the oral examination (code FO) mentioned in table 1 for a specific aircraft type if:
(a)   the person obtains, and records in a schedule of experience, appropriate practical experience on the aircraft type; and
