Designed for aviation flight crew, Fatigue Management for Aviation Flight Crew Members provides the knowledge to identify, recognise and manage fatigue hazards.
In 2019, the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) finalised new fatigue management rules in response to an independent review and industry consultation.
This course is aligned to these new rules (Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 48.1 Instrument 2019), which outline the fatigue management strategies that flight crew members and air operators must adhere to.
As a flight crew member, upon successful completion of this course you will:
- recognise aviation-specific and general causes of fatigue;
- understand how lifestyle choices can impact fatigue and how to manage them;
- understand the need for and benefits of quality sleep and rest;
- identify symptoms of fatigue and the steps required to manage it;
- have knowledge of the regulatory fatigue management requirements under CAO 48.1;
- understand how to comply with CAO 48.1.
The Fatigue Management for Aviation Flight Crew Members course covers eight key topics:
- Causes of fatigue
- Aviation-specific fatigue risks
- The mechanics and benefits of sleep
- Fatigue warning signs and barriers to sleep
