Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) Training

 

Everyone is governed by the CARs, but not all are conversant, familiar or comfortable with them. We provide customized CARs trainings to suit your organization, or scheduled CARs courses. The most common CARs we train in are 571/573 (combined) and 561, but we can tailor a course to suit any operation. We also try to make it more interesting than watching paint dry!

For an in house CARs course, call us. 

These are competency based with a pass mark of 70%, and certificates for successful particpants.

 

 

Effective Auditing

 

This will benefit anyone who is involved in conducting internal or external audits, or the implementation of quality management procedures of an aviation company.

Our Effective Auditing course covers a full audit from beginning to end. In this highly interactive course, participants will learn about:

  • Audit Terminology
  • Audit Preparation
  • How to Create Effective Checklists (using a manual created for the course)
  • Audit interviews (role playing and discussion)
  • Carrying out the Audit
  • Opening and Closing Meetings (mock meetings are actually held as the class particpates)
  • Audit Reports
  • Audit Follow-up

The class is guided on how to prepare for an audit, given a manual, and will create checklists, and create the reports.

This is based on 100% attendance and participation, and includes a certificate of  completion.

 

Safety Management Systems (SMS)

 

A good quality Safety Managment System is one step closer to a safe operation.  If you have a good, effective QA program, you are halfway there. SMS is simply QA on steriods. We have helped companies with:

  • training in the basics of SMS, for both managers and employees
  • worked with new managers who had worked within an SMS, but never in a managerial capacity
  • developed SMS for small airports

Although TCCA has changed the parameters of who needs an SMS, new operations and airlines are still required to have this. We can help make this a little more painless.

Certificate of completion at the end for a pass mark of 70%.

 

Fatigue Risk Management System - Part I (for flight crew)

NOTE**On August 8, 2015, a Notice of Intent was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, confirming the intent of Transport Canada to introduce proposed amendments to the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) to address flight crew fatigue management

 

In anticipation of the proposed amendment passing, we have a classroom presentation that addresses this training for flight crew. This course will cover:

  • Fatigue, what is it, how to recognize it
  • Sleep debt and sleep cycles
  • Circadian rhythm-what is it, how to deal with it
  • Performance factors comparing fatigue and alcohol consumption
  • 14 common causes of fatigue, and how to deal with them
  • Fatigue and the behaviors associated with it
  • Goal setting exercises so that participants can have goals to aim for
