Provide search and rescue (SAR) alerting and emergency response

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: July 2018


This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to provide search and rescue (SAR) alerting services, in compliance with relevant regulatory requirements of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and national operating standards.

It includes providing emergency response and providing search and rescue alerting.

This unit addresses aviation technical skill requirements (physical, mental and taskmanagement abilities) related to air traffic control duties that complement the nontechnical skills of air traffic controllers, and contribute to safe and effective performance in complex aviation operational environments.

Operations are conducted as part of commercial and military air traffic services across a variety of operational contexts within the Australian aviation industry.

Work is performed independently or under limited supervision as a single operator or within a team environment.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements are applicable to this unit.

Use for Defence Aviation is to be in accordance with relevant Defence Orders, Instructions, Publications and Regulations.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)
