Aviation Training Package – Transport Security Protection Project

Industry Skills Australia (ISA) has commenced the update to the Certificate II in Transport Security Protection to enable the qualification to reflect recent regulatory changes.

Click to view each stage:

This project will review and update the Certificate II in Transport Security Protection (TSP) to align it with regulatory changes, the latest technologies and current industry practices.  

Security screening officers play a vital role in ensuring the safety of passengers and airport operations. Technologies used in transport security screening are different across aviation, maritime, and air cargo sectors. Therefore, the review will ensure that skill standards are in line with current workplace requirements in each of the three screening sectors. This will also streamline and enhance the delivery of the qualification by training providers, leading to increased efficiency and lower delivery costs especially for regional training providers. 

The Department of Home Affairs is the security regulator for the aviation, maritime, and air cargo sectors. They set the training and qualification requirements for screening officers who operate in these sectors. It is a regulatory requirement for security screeners to hold a Certificate II in TSP. The project will review and update the Core units of competency to align with current industry practices. The Specialist Elective units of competency will also be reviewed to reflect the current industry needs in each sector separately. The project will also assess whether there is a need to create a General Elective stream to ensure that each sector can use the content to meet regulatory or industry needs more flexibly.       


This project will update:

  • 1 qualification
  • 6 associated Skill Sets
  • 16 associated Units of Competency

This project will also:

  • update the ​Aviation​ Companion Volume Implementation Guide;
  • produce a mapping document stating changes made;
  • update any out-of-scope product affected by the changes made to the project training products.

Please note this qualification contains one not-for-public access (NFPA) restricted Unit of Competency with content not published on the National Register. The content of this unit is maintained separately and is only available to Registered Training Organisations authorised by the Department of Home Affairs.

The reviewed training products are due to be submitted to the Assurance Body by February 2025. 


Industry Skills Australia (ISA) will engage with stakeholders throughout the life of the project and consider all ideas, opinions, and feedback to the revised training products to ensure they meet the needs of industry. A consultation log containing a high-level summary of all feedback and ISA’s response will be maintained and available on our website. 

ISA will facilitate a webinar following the endorsement of the materials to support stakeholders in understanding the changes and how they will affect them.
