Course Description

This course aims to provide an overview of integrated avionics systems for personnel employed as para-professional technicians.
This course focuses on avionic system principles, interface and integration of systems such as compass, communication navigation and how these systems integrate together.
Computer techniques, graphical methods and mathematical calculations should complement scientific principles chosen. Analysis, appropriate precision and accuracy and use conservative estimations will be used.

Overview of Assessment


 This competency requires a student to display that knowledge has been acquired to appling selection and applying advanced aeronautical scientific principles and techniques using computer techniques, graphical methods and mathematical calculations.

Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards. Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course.
