A review of a Check and Training program
MetadataShow full item record
An important component in any airline's training department is the education and development of its training and checking captains. This paper focuses on a program, integrated into numerous airlines over the last couple of years, relating to key issues that have been learnt from the author's experiences. The paper will cover three significant areas that have been identified as fundamental for an effective course. Firstly, foundations of the course need to be based on sound educational theory. Secondly, participants must engage in practical exercises that demonstrate relevant theory. Thirdly, the course should not be structured in a linear delivery process, but rather, in a manner that allows continual reflection on previous days' lessons, building students' knowledge in a spiralling approach. Throughout this paper, references will be restricted to texts that have been influential to the author's understanding of vocational training.
