Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate (AROC) Course

Course Overview

Our half day course has been designed in consultation with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and will provide you with the skills and knowledge to broadcast on a VHF Air-band radio. This course is ideal for individuals who work as an Aerodrome Reporting Officer or Works Safety Officer at an aerodrome. We can also tailor the course to suit anyone currently working or intending to work in any form of airline operations role.

Our AROC course is 4-hours in duration and conducted face-to-face either in our training room, or at your site.  The course is a blend of theoretical and practical delivery and assessment, plus a AROC and GELP application will be completed during this course, and submitted to CASA on your behalf.


  • We recommend individuals attain an understanding of general radio operation and the relevant Civil Aviation Regulations, particularly CAR 83 – Use and operation of radio communication systems by Australian aircraft.
  • Students will need to apply for or already hold an Aviation Reference Number with CASA prior to attending their AROC course. Please note we cannot send your application to CASA without your Aviation Reference Number being noted on your application paperwork.

Radio Application – CASA

Following the successful completion of this course your endorsed AROC paperwork is forwarded to CASA for them to issue your Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate, which will be posted to your nominated address directly from CASA (NOTE: this can take CASA 2-4 weeks to process).
