Aviation Subject Matter Experts Needed

Work on this project has commenced and the Aviation Industry Reference Committee is forming a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).

Your industry expertise and insight is welcome to help develop a 3D Computed Tomography Scanning Skill Set and one new Unit of Competency for aviation security workers in preparation for updated aviation transport regulations.

TAC nominations closed on Friday, 2 August 2019.

For more information about this project please contact the Industry Manager.


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 cover this new technology.

The Aviation Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed the development of one new Unit of Competency and one new Skill Set to enhance the vocational skills and professionalisation pathways for transport security protection roles and allied security screening occupations.  New occupational standards will cover advances to technological skills in the area of 3D CT Scanning, and will be aligned to aviation transport security regulatory requirements.

The expected submission of the Case for Endorsement will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by 31 August 2020.

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 to provide subject matter expertise for the development of Training Package materials.

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.
