Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 2. ISC upgrade - a statement relevant to Defence Aviation has been added to the Application of the unit.

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 implement aviation risk management processes, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and national operating standards.

It includes identifying, controlling, monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of risk management processes as part of a safety management system (SMS).

Work involves managing the effects of uncertainty on objectives using an SMS within a variety of operational contexts within the Australian aviation industry.

This unit addresses aviation non-technical skill requirements (mental, social and personal-management abilities) related to safety management duties that complement the technical skills of aviation personnel and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

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

Work is performed independently or under limited supervision within a single-pilot or multi-crew environment.

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

Use for Defence Aviation is to be in accordance with relevant Defence Orders, Instructions, Publications and Regulations.

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.

Competency Field

F – Safety Management

Unit Sector
