Aviation Australia hosted the Defence Industries Study Group for the first time
Last month Aviation Australia hosted the Defence Industries Study Group for the first time since the annual Defence and Industry Study Course began in 1954. The purpose of the group is to help participants develop a better understanding of both Defence and industry in order to improve Australia’s defence industry capabilities.
The group of around 56 members consisted of key Defence personnel from all Australia Defence Force divisions, Defence contractors and various state government representatives. The group were briefed by Technical Training Manager Mark Thompson on the company’s history and current capabilities.
The briefing also focussed on Aviation Australia’s work to date in the recently released Defence Safety Agency Regulations including the pending DASR Part 147 training organisation approval.
The group also visited the practical training facilities which provides a distinct competitive advantage against other training providers.
Aviation Australia can assist the Australian Defence Force by converting current defence knowledge, skills and experience into a career as a civilian aircraft maintenance engineer. The process of assessment is conducted through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
Aviation Australia will be attending the Defence Transition Seminar at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Southbank on Tuesday 16 October.
