Aviation Services Accreditation Support Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 7th of May 2021 - 5:00 am Value: To be determined by the department based on application Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=c72f707c-944a-4186-99da-0a23447324f7

Due to COVID-19, a significant portion of aviation ground handling staff have not worked since March 2020 and due to this long period of negligible flying activity, the ground handling workforce is likely to require retraining and re-accreditation to ensure safety standards are maintained for all flights.

Noting that ground handling organisations service all aspects of aviation, the Program will provide capped grants to eligible businesses to contribute to mandatory training, certification, and accreditation of ground handling workers essential for the operation of aircraft. This contribution will set a floor to ensure that the sector is in a position to respond as domestic flying activity recovers. It is anticipated that the Program will cover approximately 30% of the training requirements of the pre-COVID workforce.

Training support would be available for both new and existing employees, as required to support aviation recovery.
