Human Factors Training for Cockpit Crews

CREW RESOURCE MANAGEMENT TRAINING HELPS AVOID AVIATION ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY HUMAN ERROR

Crew Resource Management (CRM)

STRENGTHENING NONTECHNICAL SKILLS AND INCREASING SAFETY

When the situation gets serious on board, the pilot’s flight skills aren’t the only abilities that matter  – the cockpit crew also has to demonstrate social, communication, and psychological skills that enable them to remain calm when the unexpected occurs. These skills are all taught in our crew resource management (CRM) training.

In our CRM Training courses, we prepare your cockpit crew for everything that could occur during a flight and teach them corresponding success strategies. Your pilots will learn to scrutinize their own behaviors and those of others, properly assess situations, make decisions, and many more skills. This enables significant improvements in collaboration between the captain, the first officer, and the cabin crew, which in turn demonstrably increases flight safety.

All of our CRM Training courses are carried out by experienced CRM trainers and pilots. The courses stand out thanks to a high level of engagement and a wide variety of teaching methods, and they meet the requirements pursuant to EASA AMC1 ORO.FC.115. Our courses can be pursued either in-house at your company or at one of our training centers.

CRM Initial Training

The two-day, license-relevant CRM Initial Training course is designed for prospective first officers and pilots, as well as flight attendants. The objective of the seminar is to teach the basics of CRM, focusing in particular on the topics of teamwork, communication, threat and error management (TEM), decision-making, situational awareness, and stress and workload management. The practical and interactive lessons help participants learn the methods and tools of CRM using case studies from the world of aviation and applying them to future tasks.

CRM Trainer Course

The five-day, license-relevant CRM Trainer Course is designed for all future human factors trainers and moderators in the cockpit as well as in the cabin. The course consists of both pedagogical as well as psychological subjects. Participants become familiar with the entire spectrum of the work of a moderator and optimize their verbal and nonverbal skills. The training deals with, for example, presentation techniques, carrying out exercises, and leading discussions. In addition to the theoretical foundation, the training also offers many opportunities for practical implementation in the form of exercises and case studies. The participants are given regular feedback, thus allowing them to reflect on their own strengths and weaknesses even after the seminar.
