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 monitor airside access and airside driving in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements and national operating standards.

It includes supervising airside access by persons and vehicles, dealing with breaches of airside access requirements, and maintaining safety of airside driving environment. It also includes dealing with breaches of airside driving rules/principles and providing airside escorts.

This unit addresses aviation technical skill requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to aviation security duties of flight or ground operations personnel 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.

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.
