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 refresher training every 2-5 years (Advisory Circular AC 139.C-02 Aerodrome Personnel).

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.

Our online course option is self-paced, and you will be provided with a 30-day licence to our Learning Management System, for you to complete the course.  We recommend that you do not enrol until you are ready to work through the online content in its entirety.  Upon registration you will be provided with a 30-day licence, please note if you need to renew this licence, additional fees will apply.

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 (this course is only offered F2F).

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 sent to [email protected] before we can process your online application.

Online Learning Option

Our online refresher course includes learning modules, followed by quizzes.  Aside from the online learning content, you will also have access to our training team if you have a question about any particular subjects – it’s not all about completing multiple choice or true and false answers. Some practical activities are required to be undertaken in combination with the theory questions.


Our ARO Refresher course is not nationally recognised. Upon successful completion of this course a Certificate of Completion will be available for download.
