Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the AVI Aviation Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to accept dangerous goods for air transport, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

It includes interpreting freight documentation, recognising dangerous goods, accepting appropriate dangerous goods, declining to accept prohibited and improperly prepared dangerous goods, preparing required dangerous goods documentation, and stowing dangerous goods.

This unit addresses aviation technical skill requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to load handling duties that complement ground operations personnel non-technical skills, and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

Operations are conducted as part of recreational, commercial and military aircraft activities across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian aviation industry.

Work is performed independently or under limited supervision as a single operator or within a team environment.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements are applicable to this unit.

Use for Defence Aviation is in accordance with relevant Defence Orders and Instructions.

Pre-requisite Unit
