New Date: FAA Internal Training on Repair Station Certification Open to Industry
From June 11-15, 2018, the FAA is hosting another installment of its week-long training session “Certification and Surveillance of Part 145 Repair Stations.” It will be administered in person at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City and is open to industry enrollment.
The course is designed to provide aviation safety inspectors with knowledge and skills necessary to participate as certification project team members for repair stations. Attending a session like this is the perfect opportunity for an industry professional to go directly to the source and see what the FAA is teaching its own personnel; it helps a lot to understand the perspective of an ASI if you know what they’ve been told about the rules…and it provides an opportunity to help the agency make the whole process better.
The course includes:
(1) Information on the differences between certification of repair stations located inside and outside the United States.
(2) Overview of international agreements for maintenance.
(3) Instruction on application of risk-based certification management.
(4) Review of what ASIs should look for during continuing surveillance.
Once students are enrolled, they will receive a welcome letter from the course manager providing specific instructions for access to the facility. For more information on logistics, individuals can reach out to the FAA Academy Student Services Section. Information regarding lodging options is also available through the FAA Academy Housing List.
The course is currently scheduled to be held multiple times this year after the June session. While seat availability cannot yet be determined for future sessions, consider contacting the FAA about getting your people into the classroom.
