This course provides an insight to contemporary security issues, aviation security standards and recommended practices, aviation security principles and procedures. As the aviation industry grows so too does the potential for terrorist and criminal activities against the industry. Aviation has been and continues to be an attractive target for terrorist, including the recent attacks against airports and aircraft operators. This course  will also develop your skills to ask “What is the desired security outcome and can it be achieved in different ways”. Unless otherwise stated, the Australian examples used throughout the course are typical of international practice.
