AVISS00053 Aerodrome Reporting Officer Skill Set


Aerodrome Management Services (RTO 52413)

Course Overview

Our Nationally Recognised four-day course has been designed to provide participants with the confidence to perform the role of Aerodrome Reporting Officer and Works Safety Officer at an airport or aerodrome.

Our face-to-face course is delivered around Australia regularly, alternatively we are available to deliver the course at your site or aerodrome upon request. Access to an aerodrome is required for practical training and assessment activities.

Our experienced trainers deliver personal, flexible and supportive face-to-face training to ensure course content is relevant and valuable for those that are new to the industry, as well as those who are looking to refresh their knowledge in this area, from all types of aerodromes.

The course is mapped from the AVI Aviation Training Package, and also meets the requirements of CASA AC139 for Aerodrome Reporting Officer training.

Radio (AROC) training is included in this course, and has been designed in consultation with CASA.

Pre-Course Requirements

Course participants are required to complete pre-course theoretical study, answer questions and complete projects in their workplace – this includes participating in practical activities on an aerodrome. This is to ensure the participant has gained some experience in a realistic aerodrome working environment. It is the responsibility of the participant to build (or arrange to build) ample experience on an aerodrome.

AMS can make recommendations as to which aerodromes can be used to facilitate this process but it is the participants responsibility to communicate with the ARO or Aerodrome Operator to arrange access to the aerodrome prior to the course.

The pre-course learner guide and assessment materials are emailed to course participants at enrolment and should be handed in on the first day of the ARO course. If students experience any difficulty completing their pre-course work they should contact AMS prior to the course start date so we can assist them further.

Blended Learning and Assessment

The course content will be delivered in a blended format. In addition to the pre-course Learner Guide and Assessment Activities, course participants will also receive their own comprehensive ARO Handbook to reference during the face-to-face component of the course, and to keep for future reference.

Theoretical assessment modules will be completed over the 4 days of the course. A practical assessment will also be undertaken at an aerodrome under the supervision of the AMS trainer and (if required) a supervising ARO for the aerodrome in question. The last day of the course is devoted to on-aerodrome practical activities, including practical assessment.
