Full-Time Course (20 hours per week)
The Certificate III in Aviation is a full-time course with 20 hours per week of classroom delivery offered at our Barrington College Australia Campus located in Varsity Lakes, Gold Coast.
It is anticipated that the theoretical knowledge components will require up to six months to complete. Students must be deemed satisfactory in theoretical knowledge components before they can nominate their required practical block from a published practical training calendar.
For CASA accreditation as RePL and AROC, students must undertake additional CASA accredited testing after successful completion of the AVI30316 Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight). Students must have evidence of a minimum of 5 hours actual flight time before they can apply for the RePL.
There is an additional cost for this testing unrelated to the course price.
