Aviation Training Package Update

2015 is shaping up to be one of significant change for the AVI Aviation Training Package. For this month’s edition, we’ll tell you about the new aviation Skill Sets and qualifications being developed for release throughout this year.

Qualifications

Several new qualifications and a proposed upgrade to two flight crew licence aligned qualifications are proposed for inclusion into the AVI Aviation Training Package. Recent changes to civil aviation safety regulations have led to a fundamental review of the commercial pilot licence qualifications framework for aeroplane and helicopter pilots. Key changes that are planned include:

  • Upgrade of the Commercial Pilot Certificate IV qualifications to Diploma level, and realign units of competency to CASA’s Part 61 Flight Crew Licencing Manual of Standards
  • Core of the qualification to align to licence requirements, and will also incorporate key flight activity ratings as elective Skill Sets
  • Inclusion of aviation safety non-technical skills throughout the qualifications in areas such as fatigue and risk management, threat and error management and human factors skills
  • Detailed information on each of the qualifications when they become available for industry review will be found at either the Commercial Pilot or Rotary Wing project pages

New qualifications proposed within the Ground Operations area are as follows:

  • AVI40X15 Certificate IV in Aviation (Flight Operations Dispatcher) – This qualification reflects the role of a Flight Operations Officer (FOO) or Flight Dispatcher (FD) working in the aviation operational environment. Successful completion will require competency in units relating to work defined as aligned at AQF Level 4. Qualifications should be structured to align with licensing and regulatory requirements applicable to the occupation concerned
  • AVI40X15 Certificate IV in Aviation (Aerodrome Operations Supervisor)- This qualification reflects the role of an aerodrome operations supervisor or team leader/coordinator in the Australian airport operating environment. Performance of a broad range of skilled applications including requirements to evaluate and analyse current practice, develop new criteria and procedure for performing current practices and provision of some leadership and guidance to others in the application and planning of the skills.
  • AVI50X15 Diploma of Aviation (Aerodrome Operations Manager)- A general qualification for the aviation industry. Successful completion will require competency in units that relate to work defined as aligned at AQF Level 5. Qualification is structured to align with regulatory requirements applicable to aerodrome operations management functions

Detailed information on each of the qualifications when they become available for industry review will be found at the Ground Operations project page. Individual units of competency for these qualifications are either being reviewed or in development with industry project stakeholders.

Skill Sets
