AVI30316 – Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot)

Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot)The Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot) course has been developed in partnership with Aviation Australia and designed in line with the competencies developed by the Industry Skills Council. It is the highest qualification available for those wishing to enter the unmanned industry and begin operating drones for business purposes. In addition to the Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot) vocational qualification, course participants will graduate with Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) industry licences – the Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and Aeronautical Radio Operator’s Certificate (AROC). The course goal is for graduates to be “job ready” by obtaining the necessary CASA industry licences, practising tasks in a number of workplace scenarios, and developing the skills, knowledge and attitudes to succeed in this emerging industry.

The Certificate III in Aviation – Remote Pilot training provides extra flying that places the student in a number of workplace scenarios that go far beyond normal RePL training. These scenarios will allow students to experience real-life job tasks under the guidance of our experienced unmanned pilots. The scenarios will take the student from initial flight and risk management planning, through to flying the task, and reviewing the quality of their work after landing. We also introduce aerial photography and mapping techniques, which isn’t covered in a normal remote pilot course.

There is also a strong focus on developing our student’s non-technical skills, such as communication, teamwork, decision making and situational awareness. We’ve taken the knowledge and experience gained from our aviation careers, such as crew resource management and threat and error management, and applied it to RPAS operations.

Our course is broken down into theoretical and practical flight components, involving external learning prior to the course, and face-to-face training over seven days.

Course Length & Content

Approximately two-weeks distance learning and then seven days of face-to-face training. Prior to the face-to-face component of the course beginning, you will be given access to our learning management system to begin studying about the unmanned industry. Our online video lessons will be complemented by a textbook and a course workbook to beginning preparing you prior to the instructor-lead stage of the course. Our theory has been developed with Australia’s leading aviation textbook publisher the Aviation Theory Centre. Our course includes lessons on: RPA Law, RPA Systems, Meteorology, Navigation, Human Factors, Operational Planning, Aeronautical Radio and Managing RPAS Operations.

Flying Time

With up to 10 hours practical training provided, your flying will go beyond that required on a standard RePL course, giving you the extra opportunity to improve your flying skills and practice workplace tasks. No prior experience is needed, nor do you need to bring your own equipment – you will begin on our DJI quadcopters and progress to more complex RPA.  We’ve deliberately designed RePL flight exercises to maximise your exposure to the full capabilities of RPA and ensure you meet the CASA designated flight standards. We also practice utilising the onboard camera systems and capabilities of both systems to prepare you for aerial photography, survey and inspection operations.

Course Locations

Our Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot) course is held in Brisbane. Days 1 and 2 involve classroom theory and will be held at Aviation Australia (Boronia Road, Brisbane Airport). Days 3 to 7 will be held at Remote Aviation’s office (Forge Close, Sumner), with flying held at a location nearby.

For larger groups, it may be possible to bring the training to you. Contact us for more information.

 

Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot)

The Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot) course provides both the AVI30316 vocational qualification, and CASA industry licences in the form of the Remote Pilots Licence (RePL) and Aeronautical Radio Operator’s Certificate (AROC). Aviation Australia’s AVI30316 Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight) is delivered under a third party agreement by Remote Aviation Australia.

The Certificate III goes beyond what is required in a normal RePL course. The Certificate III competency standards are consistent with Australian Government policy that requires training to be:

  • Structured and competency-based
  • Delivered by qualified and competent instructors
  • Assessed against clearly-defined competency standards.

Certificate III in Aviation Remote Pilot

Key areas that were addressed in the development of the AVI30316 Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight) are flight command, management and supervisory skills, managing threats and errors, security procedures, crew resource management and situational awareness. The units of competency span aviation safety, risk management and human factors, which are considered ‘non-technical’ skills and consequently, are reliant on integrated training and assessment strategies to support the ‘technical’ skills of working in the Australian aviation industry.

As a course graduate, you will have the workplace skills and qualifications need to be employed as a remote pilot, or apply to CASA as Chief Remote Pilot for your own ReOC.
