EASA Part-145 Maintenance Training
If you are an EASA Part-145 approved maintenance organisation, you know that there are a lot of standards which you must comply with when performing maintenance on aircraft and components.
But an EASA certification begets a responsibility to conduct training of personnel continuously to retain the regulatory approval to perform Part-145 maintenance.
We offer several Part-145 training solutions for your maintenance staff which ensure your compliance with training requirements.
Aviation is a field where you do not want to be non-compliant.
Safety training for maintenance including Human Factors
Safety management processes are essential in aviation. However, it has become increasingly clear that the policies, processes, and procedures implemented by a company can never solely ensure a safe operating environment. We must always consider the human element.
Learning about human factors and safety management enables staff to optimise human performance and reduce the impact of human error.
We offer initial and recurrent safety training for maintenance personnel. The training touches upon the principles of a Safety Management System and the impact human factors have on safety. What are human factors? Why and how do they affect safety? What can we do to mitigate the consequences?
FTS - Fuel Tank Safety
Combine with EWIS & Human Factors to save time and enhance staff motivation.
Fuel Tank Safety (FTS) constitutes an important maintenance area since errors in the design, components, or structure may cause severe or even fatal incidents. In other words, a strong FTS awareness is crucial to flight safety.
Our initial and recurrent FTS training enhances knowledge of potential issues and hazards which may cause accidents in the operational environment.
Your maintenance staff become aware of the reasons for introducing FTS as a discipline, and they will gain an insight into the problems which may occur when performing maintenance on fuel tank systems. They also achieve an understanding of how and where to obtain and use maintenance data relevant for work on FTS systems.
EWIS Module A-F
Combine with FTS and Human Factors to save time and enhance staff motivation.
History and previous accidents have demonstrated that electrical wiring must be considered an integral aircraft system. Therefore, more focus must be given to training of EWIS maintenance.
Our initial EWIS Module A-F training raises awareness of the reasons for introducing EWIS as a concept. Participants will gain an understanding of common problems they may encounter when working on these systems. This includes how and where to obtain and use maintenance data relevant for work performed on EWIS.
Please note that EWIS Module G – Practical Training is a separate training course. See below for more information.
EWIS Module G - Practical Training
EWIS constitutes the lifeline on a plane. If a line is broken, the whole system can potentially collapse.
Our EWIS Module G - Practical Training lays the groundwork for safe and efficient maintenance, alteration, and repair of EWIS in aircraft. The practical dimension enables demonstrations of the proper use of tools when performing repair as well as replacement of connective devices.
We provide initial and recurrent practical training of EWIS Module G – so technicians and mechanical staff performing assemblies and repairs on the system have acquired or maintained the necessary skills to do so.
SMS - Safety Management System
Lack of past problems does not guarantee a safe future! But implementing a Safety Management System into your organisational culture certainly helps. SMS is about identifying bad procedures, hazards, risks, and insufficient barriers. Being aware of the potential dangers in your organisation allows you to make informed decisions to either accept them or do something actively to address the situation.
Our introductory SMS training for managers in Part-145 and Part-21 organisations provides the fundamental knowledge to design and implement a safety management system tailored to your needs. Applying a new safety mindset contributes to a strong safety culture in all layers of your organisation.
In 2022, EASA established a mandatory requirement for Part-145 maintenance organisations to have SMS implemented into their quality system. Similar requirements will apply for Part-21G Production and Part-21J Design. The deadline for compliance expires on December 2, 2024.
RECEIVING INSPECTION & Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUP) Training
ESD - ELECTROSTATIC SENSITIVE DEVICES
Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDs) are highly susceptible to damage. Most commonly, damage is caused by human contact.
We offer ESD training which covers both the initial and recurrent training requirements.
We touch upon the following questions: What are ESDs? Why is it important to enhance awareness of these devices? How should you handle ESDs within your organisation? What can you do to prevent damages to ESDs?
FOD - Foreign Object Damage
Foreign Object Damage/Debris (FOD) can cause severe and fatal accidents due to the undetected impact it can have on the aircraft. FOD can potentially originate from many sources. Normal daily operations will produce a lot of this debris with the potential of causing damage to aircraft systems.
Our initial and recurrent FOD training provides an insight into the area of FOD and touches upon the following questions: What is FOD? Why is awareness of FOD important? How can your staff prevent FOD in the operational environment? And how can your organisation support this?
Component Maintenance Training
Aircraft technicians have many different jobs to complete when performing maintenance. One of them is working on detached aircraft components. For this job, a certain knowledge of component maintenance is required to identify the tasks that must be performed for a given component. Everything must be done according to regulations.
Our training in component maintenance is aimed at Component Certifying Staff not qualified in accordance with Annex III. Our training also applies where the qualifications are determined by company procedures and under the approval of the local Competent Authority.
The training will be tailored to fit your needs. We offer training which covers both the initial staff training standard and the specific component maintenance requirements.
