Class B certification is provided for Airservices Australia and RAAF Air Traffic Services staff, Certified Air/Ground Radio Operators, Aerodrome Reporting Officers and those who work in similar roles.
Initial AWO Class B certification is comprised of both theory courses and a practical course. Each course is a prerequisite for the next.
