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 facilitate non-technical skills instruction in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

Use of this unit outside of aviation training and assessment environments is to be in accordance with relevant regulatory authority requirements and industry standards.

It includes instructing effective lookout procedures, situational awareness techniques, and effective situational awareness and decision making. It also includes instruction of task priority and management, and effective communications and teamwork.

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

Non-technical skills instruction is conducted as part of recreational, commercial and/or military aviation training 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.

Work is performed independently and without supervision within a multi-crew environment.

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