AVI Aviation and Maritime Transport Security

This project is part of the AVI Aviation Training Package Project.

Overview

A review of Australia’s current transport security arrangements has highlighted the need for review and development of the Aviation Training Package to address regulatory requirements from the Office of Transport Security (OTS). Screening systems and covert testing are to be extended into air cargo and the maritime sectors to incorporate large cruise ship passenger and baggage screening.

This project will focus on two qualifications and associated Units of Competency. The qualifications include:

  • AVI20316 Certificate II in Aviation Transport Protection (Passenger and Non-Passenger Screener)
  • AVI20416 Certificate II in Aviation Transport Protection (Checked Baggage Screener)

Draft Material Available

The TAC has finalised draft materials for this project and would like your feedback.

The project has focused on the development of a new qualification AVI201XX Certificate II in Transport Security Protection. This qualification replaces two previous qualifications. It contains five specialist screening elective groups covering Air Cargo, Domestic Airports, International Airports, Maritime and a Generalist stream.

One specific core Unit of Competency ‘AVIG2002X Work effectively in the transport security industry’ has been classified ‘Not for Public Access’ as its content may include security sensitive information and hence is not included in the drafts.

Please submit your feedback by close of business by Monday, 9 July 2018. Feedback has now closed.

26 March 2018

The Aviation Transport Security TAC met on Monday, 26 March 2018 to continue discussions on the review of the qualification and packaging rules, development of skill sets and associated Units of Competency.
