What is Evidence-Based Training?

Evidence-Based Training (EBT) for Flight Operations Inspectors and AOC/ATO Training Managers refers to a training approach that emphasises the use of scientific research, data, and evidence to inform and enhance the training programmes for flight operator inspectors. EBT aims to improve the effectiveness of training by aligning it with real-world operational experiences and incorporating the latest advancements in human factors, technology, and safety practices.

Course Overview

This course provides delegates from both the regulatory and operational environments with the core knowledge and competencies required to understand the process of compliance with UK and European Community rules in respect of Evidence-based Training programmes under Parts FCL, ARO and ORO.

This course has been designed and developed by practicing Senior Flight Operations Inspectors and also contains practical application on the principles and philosophies of Evidence-Based Training, in addition to guidance on approval and continuing oversight of EBT programmes.

Delegates on this course will use the latest assessment and grading software during practical exercises on EBT based training scenarios, in addition to exposure on data analysis for EBT programmes.

This course is suitable for inspecting staff within flight operations, both in regulatory and industry positions, AOC and ATO training managers and EBT Programme managers.

The course is also beneficial to AOC Nominated Persons and Flight Crew training personnel within the aviation regulatory environment.

This training course will include the following topics:

  • EBT philosophy
  • The regulatory framework
  • EBT programme structure
  • Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA)
  • Developing resilience
  • Data-driven training and Training System Performance
  • Adult Learning Principles
  • Observing behavioural indicators
  • Standardising assessments and grading, including root cause analysis
  • EBT programme development & design, including mixed implementation
  • Implementing EBT and change management
  • Flight crew licensing process
  • EBT approval process and continuing oversight

Delegates on this course will receive comprehensive theory and practical training in the principles and philosophies of Evidence-Based Training, including all aspects of design, delivery, approval and oversight of Evidence-Based Training programmes. This course will give delegates an opportunity to apply the knowledge through practical application of assessment criteria and selection of re-training tools. This practical application also serves to standardise instructor assessment.

With the knowledge gained of EBT programme design, approval and oversight, delegates will have acquired the core skill sets required to design, develop, approve and provide on-going oversight to an EBT programme in a Flight Operations Inspecting, or training management role, in the flight crew training regulatory environment (being UK or Internationally based)

Delegates should ideally be experienced holders of professional pilot licences, Operations personnel currently working in the aviation regulatory environment or Flight AOC Nominated Persons.
