DEF Range Control Officer

Project scope

 

This project involves the revision of the Diploma of Range Control and Management and the Range Control Skill Set to address recent changes to the provision of base services relating to management of Defence training areas and ranges.

 

Defence Land Warfare Procedures (General) (LWP (G)) 7-3 Range Orders Series (which governs the use of Australian Defence Force (ADF) live fire ranges) identified several common areas of non-compliance on ranges.  In nearly all range incidents, there has been an element of range staff not following Range Safety Procedures.

 

This review will ensure the skills and knowledge requirements outlined in the qualification addresses current occupational requirements for range control supervisors. In addition, it includes the review of one Skill Set and six Units of Competency, including any superfluous units for deletion from the National Register as part of this project.
