EASA-compliant FRM training
Clockwork provides EASA-compliant FRM training to enable European commercial aviation operators to meet their regulatory responsibilities for managing crew fatigue.
In January 2014, EASA (the European Aviation Safety Agency) published new rules that require commercial air transport operators to take a more scientific approach to the management of crew fatigue. These rules came into force in February 2015.
A key part of the rules (AMC1.ORO.FTL.250) is the requirement for operators to provide “initial and recurrent fatigue management training to crew members, personnel responsible for preparation and maintenance of crew rosters and management personnel concerned.”
To help operators meet their responsibilities and achieve compliance with the EASA regulations, Clockwork Research has developed a comprehensive programme of training for these groups. The training programme begins with a briefing session for senior management, to raise their awareness of fatigue and their responsibilities for managing crew fatigue. Subsequent training sessions are provided for the safety team, office personnel (e.g. crew planning/rostering) and CRM instructors.
As part of this service Clockwork Research provides the operator with a report summarising the training that has been provided, certificates for all attendees and copies of the training material.
Fatigue risk management regulations are due to extend to other parts of the aviation industry in time, and Clockwork Research is able to offer relevant compliant training to sectors such as Air Traffic Control, HEMS and maintenance operations.
