An Occupational Standard (OS) identifies the tasks performed in a particular occupation and describes the knowledge and skills required to perform these tasks competently.
CCAA develops Occupational Standards by working with subject-matter experts to document the tasks and sub-tasks executed by workers in the performance of their duties. This analysis also itemizes the knowledge requirements to perform each task and sub-task, including equipment and tools utilized to accomplish them.
CCAA has developed 29 Occupational Standards to support the aviation and aerospace occupations. Please click on a Standard to learn more about it.
