Online ARO Refresher Course

About the course

Our ARO Refresher course has been designed to help you stay current with recent industry changes and legislation updates. The intent of the course is to both challenge and increase the level of knowledge of Aerodrome Reporting Officers. Throughout the course you will have access to the AMS training team for support. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority recommends that ARO/WSO staff conduct recurrent training every 2-5 years (Advisory Circular AC 139.C-02 Aerodrome Personnel, 4.8.3).

This course is not recommended for individuals that are new to the role of Aerodrome Reporting Officer or Works Safety Officer, or for those that have not worked recently as an ARO/WSO. For individuals new to the role we recommend our Aerodrome Reporting Officer Skill Set course.


Once you have enrolled, your subscription to our LMS lasts 30-days. We recommend that you do not enrol until you are ready to work through the online content in its entirety.

Additional subscription fees apply if you wish to renew your licence.
