3D Computed Tomography (CT) scanning is currently undergoing trials in Melbourne and Sydney airports and it is anticipated that civil aviation safety regulations will be revised to accommodate this new technology.
The Aviation Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed this project to review the Transport Security Protection Qualification, including development of one new Unit of Competency and one new Skill Set.
This project seeks to enhance the vocational skills and professionalisation pathways for transport security protection roles and allied security screening occupations, whilst adopting new advances to technological skills in the area of 3D CT Scanning, whilst ensuring continued compliance with aviation transport security regulatory requirements.View IRC Skills Forecast
The Aviation IRC will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.
Regular updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.
If you have any questions about this project, or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Manager.
