F2F ARO Refresher Course

About the course

Our 2-day F2F ARO Refresher course has been designed to make sure you stay current with recent industry changes and legislation updates. The intent of the course is to further build on the level of knowledge of Aerodrome Reporting Officers.  The Civil Aviation Safety Authority recommends that ARO/WSO staff conduct refresher training every 2-5 years (Advisory Circular AC 139.C-02 Aerodrome Personnel).

Who is this course for?

This course is not recommended for those that are new in the role of an ARO or have had little exposure in the role of an ARO since their initial course. This course has been designed for those currently working as an Aerodrome Reporting Officer and want to maintain their industry currency.

For individuals that have not maintained their currency, we recommend our full Aerodrome Reporting Officer Skill Set course.

You are eligible to undertake this course if you can provide the following evidence:

  • Evidence of completing an ARO course and/or refresher training or have completed the Certificate III in Aviation (Aerodrome Operations) in the last 5 years,


  • Can demonstrate your ARO Currency (we recommend sending us 3 x serviceability inspections that you have completed over the last 12 months to demonstrate currency).
  • This evidence needs to be attached to your enrolment.

Course Options & Duration

We offer our 2-day ARO Refresher classes a few times each year.  Our industry experts/trainers make the course interactive and interesting for all participants, allowing plenty of time for valuable group discussions, questions and answers.  AMS can also come to your site (class size capped at 10 people) to deliver a hybrid ARO Refresher course. The course will be customised for your team and aerodrome, and specific training gap requirements.
