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 perform operational inspections on remote operated systems in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and national operating standards.

It includes completing operational inspection administration, operational inspections, and performing and recording operational inspections.

This unit addresses technical skill requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to equipment and system operations of remote system operations personnel and contributes to safe and effective performance in complex operational environments.

Remote system operations are conducted as part of recreational, commercial and military activities across a variety of operational contexts within Australian industry.

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

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

Pre-requisite Unit

Not applicable.
