  • coordinate accident and emergency procedures
  • identify and respond to health, safety and security issues
  • communicate effectively in the airline and airport working environment

You will gain valuable industry workplace exposure to airport and airline operations, as well as experience in an aviation environment within our fully equipped aircraft hangar facility.

This course has been developed in partnership with the aviation industry, and provides you with a professional, non-flying pathway to an exciting career in aviation.

Previous graduates of this course have found employment with both international and regional airports and within the broader aviation industry.
