National Occupational Standards and Certification System: Soaring to New Human Resources Heights in the Aviation Maintenance Sector (2005)

Established in 1991, the Canadian Aviation Maintenance Council (CAMC) is a not-for-profit organization that links business, labour, and educational institutions as it responds to the human resources needs of the aviation and aerospace industry.

One of the key programs developed by CAMC is the National Occupational Standards and Curricula, a set of standards that define the skills, knowledge, and competencies required to perform the duties of 19 occupations.

CAMC’s national standards and certification system helps ensure that current and future employees perform job tasks to a certain code and level of conduct. CAMC standards describe in detail tested procedures, courses of action, and techniques, and provide the blueprint from which decisions are made. If followed, they help reduce human-factor variances in the workplace.

By using CAMC standards, the aviation industry is more satisfied with the level of quality and workmanship coming out of its shops, hangars, and garages. Through the CAMC standards and certification system, organizations have also been able to realize significant cost savings and improvements in productivity.

Other CAMC programs include the accreditation of training programs; youth orientation programs; and the implementation of recruitment and retention strategies.
