The Air Traffic Control Steering Committee met on 13th August in Melbourne, to validate and sign off the revised Diploma of Aviation (Air Traffic Control). Representatives from Defence and Airservices Australia have worked towards the harmonisation of the qualification with the current and future industry needs of civil and military airspace management. A key outcome of the revised Diploma is the closer alignment of unit information with the CASR Part 65 Manual of Standards for air traffic services licencing. The qualification is expected to be finalised for inclusion into the AVI08 Aviation Training Package in the near future.For any further information contact Dan.Minton@tlisc.org.au, Senior Training Package Specialist-Aviation

The Diploma of Aviation (Air Traffic Control) Steering Committee was held in Melbourne to consider the work undertaken by the Technical Advisory Group and to review key concepts and minor wording issues. At this meeting, the packaging of the qualification to include 6 core units and 1 elective unit from a selection of 3 units, was confirmed as the requirement to accurately reflect the job role.The Steering Committee also considered the review process moving forward and confirmed the value of a mapping matrix to ensure appropriate rigour in the units and the relationship of the Performance Criteria with the Performance Evidence and Knowledge Evidence. This work will be undertaken prior to final validation and sign off by both committees which is expected to occur in August 2014.

22 – 24 April 2014
The Diploma of Aviation (Air Traffic Control) TAG met in Sydney to review the qualification, units and packaging rules during a 3 day workshop, hosted by Airservices Australia. Each unit was thoroughly examined and revised to reflect current practice in Air Traffic Control as applicable to both Airservices Australia and Defence air traffic controllers.

The materials were prepared in the New Standards format for presentation to the Steering Committee which met in May. Qualification packaging was discussed and the recommendation made that one unit be removed and that the qualification contain 6 core units and 1 elective unit. The units were ‘future-proofed’ in recognition of the changes that are anticipated to take place with the introduction of the OneSky initiative.

Furthermore, a body of information from the original range statement was identified as valuable guidance information to be included in the Companion Volume Implementation Guide.

26 February 2014
The Air Traffic Control TAG meeting was held in Melbourne. Following the directions set by the Steering Committee in October, a further four draft units were revised, discussed and edited as an initial revised draft for consideration. The aim of this revision is to ensure that units are relevant, current, and that there is true alignment between the performance criteria and underpinning skills and knowledge.

19 December 2013
The Air Traffic Control Technical Advisory Group (TAG) meeting was held in Melbourne. The draft qualification and unit reviewed by the Steering Committee was further reviewed by the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and edited with new revised drafts to be prepared and agreed upon.

18 October 2013
The Air Traffic Control Project Steering Committee (PSC) meeting was held in Melbourne. Agreement was reached that the current qualification structure approved as fit for purpose and within regulatory guidelines.
