AVI Aviation Supervision

Project scope

 

This project will add a new specialisation stream to the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision), incorporating Units of Competency from the recently deleted Certificate IV Aviation (Flight Operation Supervision).

 

This is aimed at helping to maintain industry skills standards for this job role, enabling skills development and career pathways, including for ground operations supervisors.

 

Flight operations supervisors are essential to aerodrome operations and have responsibility to plan, support and monitor flights, provide up to date information to flight crew and coordinate efforts when unplanned events occur. They co-ordinate all activities on the ground at an airport to ensure the safe, quick, and efficient turnaround of aircraft from when they land to the time they depart. They are also known as turnaround co-ordinators (TCOs), flight dispatchers or load controllers.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

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

 

If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Industry Skills Manager.

 

Timeline

 

The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 30 June 2022.

DRAFT MATERIALS

 

On behalf of the Aviation Industry Reference Committee, its Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has drafted Training Package materials for the Aviation Supervision project (Security screening), including one updated qualification and four new Units of Competency, and is seeking stakeholder feedback.

 

Security Screening Supervisors are needed to supervise the implementation of aviation security preventive measures and monitor the quality of the performance of various tasks which contribute to the safety and security of passengers, crew, ground personnel, and the general public.

 

A new Security Screening Supervision specialisation stream has been added to the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision), comprising four new units that address the  required skills and knowledge for supervisors to:

  • Coordinate response to security incidents and breaches
  • Interpret and implement transport security policies and procedures
  • Facilitate screening of people with special considerations
  • Manage aviation security screening equipment

 

The TAC has also included an imported unit CPPSEC4004 Supervise security operations as part of this qualification specialisation.

 

Draft materials for the proposed new Flight Operations Supervision stream are currently at the validation stage.

 

Feedback closed Friday, 6 May 2022.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED: AVIATION SECURITY SCREENING SUPERVISORS

 

The Aviation Supervision project has been extended to include the development of an additional qualification stream for aviation security screening supervisors.

 

This new specialisation stream will be added to the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision), along with a new Flight Operations Supervision stream which is currently at the validation stage.

 

The Aviation Industry Reference Committee is forming a Technical Advisory Committee to assist with this work. Your industry expertise and insight are welcome to help develop five new Units of Competency relating to security supervision.

 

Aviation security screening of passengers and baggage before boarding or loading an aircraft is an important security layer and is the responsibility of authorised screening authorities.

 

The Australian Government sets the standards for aviation security screening, but it is individual airports, airlines and their contractors that have direct responsibility for delivering security screening services on the ground.

 

Security supervisor personnel are needed at airports to supervise and monitor the implementation of aviation security preventive measures. In addition, they are needed to supervise the implementation of aviation security preventive measures and monitor the quality of the performance of various tasks which contribute to the safety and security of passengers, crew, ground personnel, and the public.

 

Registrations closed Friday, 28 January 2022.

DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Aviation Industry Reference Committee, the TAC has drafted materials for this project and is requesting stakeholder feedback.

 

The materials for the Aviation Supervision project include the addition of a new specialisation stream to the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision), incorporating Units of Competency from the recently deleted Certificate IV Aviation (Flight Operation Supervision).

 

The TAC has also removed the unit AVIF0029 Implement threat and error management strategies from the core that was previously added in error.

Validation

13 MAY 2022

FINAL DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Aviation Industry Reference Committee (IRC), its Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has considered all stakeholder feedback and is now seeking validation of revised draft Training Package materials for the Aviation Supervision (Security Screening) project, including one updated qualification and four new Units of Competency.

 

These draft products address the skills requirements for security screeners to supervise the implementation of aviation security preventive measures and monitor the quality of the performance of various tasks which contribute to the safety and security of passengers, crew, ground personnel, and the general public.

 

In addition to adopting stakeholder feedback, the TAC has added BSBPEF401 Manage personal health and wellbeing to the electives in the Cert IV Aviation (Supervision)  to support the capability of screening supervisors to address mental health impacts on themselves and aviation security staff.

 

The Aviation IRC is seeking your feedback to validate these draft materials to ensure the proposed products meet industry needs.
