Integrated assessment at the level of the Qualification provides an opportunity for learners to show that they are able to integrate concepts, ideas and actions across Unit Standards to achieve competence that is grounded and coherent in relation to the purpose of the Qualification.
Integrated assessment should show how already demonstrated competence in individual areas can be linked and applied for the achievement of a holistic outcome as described in the exit level outcomes. Integrated assessment must judge the quality of the observable performance, and also the quality of the thinking that lies behind it. Assessment tools must encourage learners to give an account of the thinking and decision-making that underpin their demonstrated performance. Some assessment practices will demand practical evidence while others may be more theoretical, depending on the type of outcomes to be assessed. The ratio between action and interpretation is not fixed, but varies according to the demands of the particular exit level outcome of the qualification. While the generic components of this Qualification at NQF Level 5 can be assessed through occupational contexts and activities relating to Air Traffic Management, care must be taken in both the learning programme and the assessment to ensure that these foundational skills are portable. The primary aim of this Qualification is to ensure that learners have a sound base of introductory education and training to prepare them for further learning, whatever career path they may choose. Learners must be able to transfer generic skills across a number of different contexts, and apply them within a number of learning areas. A broad range of task-orientated and theoretical assessment tools may be used, with the distinction between practical knowledge and disciplinary knowledge maintained so that each takes its rightful place.
As with most other aviation related learning programmes the contents is governed by ICAO. During the international comparison no other qualifications as such were found, however, the existence of many learning programmes was evident. In many instances, the respective competencies are loose standing learning programmes presented as modules for easy integration into the respective aviation occupational training programmes. These could in a way serve the same purpose as Unit Standards developed for the NQF. The advantage of South African Qualifications and Unit Standards is that it provides for a holistic approach to the learner ensuring the development of the whole person as compared to just being able to perform a specific task. The international comparison thus focuses on those countries and authorities that are governed by the same or similar international agreements. In this regard, the following countries were considered: Jordan, Finland, Zimbabwe and the People's Republic of China (PRC). Authorities considered were ICAO, IATA and Eurocontrol.
International comparability for the National Diploma: Aeronautical Information Management Practice is vested in the following:
Collectively these bodies may be considered as major role players that comply with international standards for aviation. South Africa as part of the global community has to comply with at least these standards and recommended practices in order to ensure compliance and competitiveness. To this end, the AIM Qualification and associated Unit Standards include at least the requirements of the stated authorities, bodies and providers.

Aeronautical Information Service (AIS):
Traditionally the Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) is an inflexible, slow to amend product centric and often paper based service providing aeronautical information via a "push" system. This service is mainly pre-flight orientated.
Aeronautical Information Management (AIM):
Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) is the term applied to the globally interoperable provision of aeronautical data of the required quality, covering the needs of the present and future ATM system and all phases of flight, in a data orientated, holistic approach. AIM is a data centric and system orientated solution, one in which timely and quality assured data is made available permanently and dynamically for use in applications that perform the required tasks, be it flight planning, flight management, navigation, separation assurance, collaborative decision making (CDM) or any other strategic or tactical activity. The principles of System Wide Information Management (SWIM) form the basis of AIM.
