Skywrench Posted March 23, 2004 Report Share Posted March 23, 2004 According to regulations, AMEs are to have recurrent human factors training every 3 years. I recently sat through a CRM (crew resource management) course, as it satisfies TC's requirements for human factors training for AMEs, but 85% of the course was aimed at cockpit operations during flight. After a brief discussion with my DM, he made the statement that anyone can conduct a human factors course for recurrent training as long as they follow the guidelines as set out in a kit available from TC. Now this got me thinking about building a course of my own, which my employer can use with the possibility of my course being employed by other companies for thier training. I know how bland a lot of these courses are, and I would like to find a way to make them more informative and enjoyablebe those of us that are required to take the training, so here in a nutshell are my thoughts: TC always speaks of the "dirty dozen" in human factors, but I would like to conduct training based upon real examples within the industry in Canada as scaled down case studies for the various points in the "dozen". My thoughts are that if you can provide examples from the country in which we are all employed, it may hit closer to home. On the same note, covering all facets of the industry, from fling wing to plank wing, heavies to fart carts to further drive that point that no area of the industry is at an advantage over another may be of a benefit. Keep in mind, these are my preliminary thoughts, and there is a lot of work that would go into putting a course together. I would like to hear thoughts and opinions from everyone and anyone that has been through HF training. Been through any good courses, and what made them good? Likewise, what made the bad ones bad? Based on the simplified model of what I would like to achieve with a course I would put together as stated above, do you think this is a good model for HF training? I know HF training at best is usually pretty dry material, and I am looking for a way to conduct a course as an AME for AMEs where people don't walk out of the course with the notion that was "too similar to the last one" and "overly boring". All input is appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
