Course Overview 

An Aerodrome Reporting Officer (ARO) must be trained to carry out the tasks prescribed by aerodrome legislation. It is the aerodrome operator’s responsibility to ensure that all personnel involved in the operation, maintenance and management of their aerodrome can competently and safely discharge their duties.

This course has been designed to meet the requirements of the Part 139 (Aerodromes) Manual of Standards 2019 and the national competency standards that are supported by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). These national units of competency form the AVISS00053 skillset and establish the skills and knowledge requirements for an Aerodrome Reporting Officer.
