Training Courses for Aviation Authorities

In order to conduct certification and oversight tasks NAA technical personnel need to have a detailed understanding of regulatory requirements as well as auditing and inspecting skills. It’s a requirement of ICAO standards and European rules that inspecting staff have suitable initial and recurrent training.

Critical Element

According to the ICAO Safety Oversight Manual ‘Technical personnel qualification and training’ is critical element 4 (CE-4) of a State Safety Oversight System.

Our Courses

Invite the industry

Many of our Authority clients invite personnel from regulated organisations to participate in elements of their training. This is a great way to ensure a common understanding of the regulations between industry and the Authority and improve relationships. It can also allow the cost of the training to be spread as we can, if required, charge delegates individually for attendance.
