AVI Industry Skills
Emerging aviation technology-based solutions (including the automation of work practices) will provide new career pathways for existing aviation employees, with opportunities to retrain and further enhance their skills.
The increasing demand for analytical skills, digital literacy and management, information management and mobile applications (development and implementation), among others, will continue to rise. Aviation employers are requiring increased digital skills capabilities and increased skills transferability across operational roles in the Aviation industry.
The Aviation IRC proposed to update the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision) and seven units of competency to meet updated regulatory requirements and new skills requirements arising from advances in aviation technology, including digital literacy, cyber security, data analysis and advanced communications.
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.
The Aviation IRC will undertake broad consultations with aviation industry stakeholders throughout the project’s duration. Additional consultation and engagement will be undertaken on the IRCs behalf with State Training Authorities and other key industry stakeholders, including seeking public feedback and input into development of material.
Proposed Schedule of Work includes an Industry Skills project that is looking at one AVI qualification and seven Units of Competency for development:
• AVI40216 Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision)
• AVIC4002 Administer airside driving
• AVIF4008 Supervise cabin safety and security
• AVIG2003 Work in a socially diverse environment
• AVII4013 Supervise cabin operations
• AVII4015 Monitor and enhance customer service excellence
• AVIO2013 Undertake emergency response action to a security threat
• AVIO4003 Implement airside access
The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee by 30 October 2020

Summary of Feedback
15 FEBRUARY 2021
The Aviation Training Package (Release 7.0) has been endorsed by Skills Ministers for implementation.
The Aviation Industry Reference Committee, with the support of the Technical Advisory Committee, has revised the Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision) and seven associated Units of Competency to meet the skills requirements of operational supervisors.
The updated Training Package addresses new skills requirements arising from advances in aviation technology, including digital literacy, cyber security, data analysis and advanced communications.
The revised qualification now includes three specialist streams for key operational roles:
Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Aerodromes)
Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Cabin Crew)
Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Ground Operations)
To support the delivery of the Training Package, a Companion Volume Implementation Guide (CVIG) has been developed to assist assessors, trainers, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and enterprises. The CVIG contains a comprehensive list of all products in the Training Package. It also includes a link to mapping information which details the changes that have been made to the materials, regulation and licensing implications and useful links to other information.
The approved Aviation Training Package Release 7.0 is now available on training.gov.au
The following materials were approved:
One revised Qualification:
- AVI40120 Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision)
Three Qualifications receiving a minor change with elective imported units updated:
- AVI20219 Certificate II in Aviation (Ground Operations and Service)
- AVI30319 Certificate III in Aviation (Ground Operations and Service)
- AVI50119 Diploma of Aviation (Aviation Management)
Units of Competency
One revised Unit of Competency with a major change:
- AVIO0022 Undertake response action to an emergency or security threat
Six existing Units of Competency revised, resulting in minor changes:
- AVIC4002 Administer airside driving
- AVIF4008 Supervise cabin safety and security
- AVIG2003 Work in a socially diverse environment
- AVII4013 Supervise cabin operations
- AVII4015 Monitor and enhance customer service excellence
- AVIO4003 Implement airside access
16 DECEMBER 2020
At its meeting on 2 December 2020 the AISC approved the Aviation Training Package (Release 7.0) for referral to the Skills Ministers for endorsement.

CASE FOR ENDORSEMENT SUBMITTED TO AISC
The draft Training Package materials have been submitted to the AISC.
The Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision) was formerly a core and general elective model and catered very broadly to aviation supervision. During the review, adjustments were made to the core of the qualification, in addition to the design of three specialist groups adding greater recognition of the key operational roles.
- Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Aerodromes)
- Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Cabin Crew)
- Certificate IV in Aviation (Aviation Supervision-Ground Operations)
Thank you to all stakeholders who provided valuable feedback and contributed to this project.
