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 provide approach control services during air traffic control operations, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and national operating standards.

It includes managing terminal airspaces and assuring separation.

This unit is applied to specific terminal airspaces that offer varying levels of air traffic services according to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and national classifications of airspaces.

This unit addresses aviation technical skill requirements (physical, mental and task-management abilities) related to air traffic control duties that complement the non-technical skills of air traffic controllers, and contribute to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

Operations are conducted as part of commercial and military air traffic services 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 to be in accordance with relevant Defence Orders, Instructions, Publications and Regulations.

Pre-requisite Unit
