Volotea, Barcelona – Non-technical Assessment Skills & HPL Training.
ITS have completed two training courses for Volotea in Barcelona, Spain.
The first course was a Non-technical Skills Assessment course designed to deliver the necessary skills for assessing non-technical skills (CRM) on a line check, simulator check or during line and simulator training. It is a mandatory EASA requirement that any individual responsible for undertaking line checks attends such a training course.
The course focuses on understanding behaviour, how to observe and record behaviour, and then how to classify and quantify it. A number of behavioural marker schemes (NOTECHS) are used on the course, including the scheme adopted by the individual operator. This is a powerful course and is always greatly appreciated by all delegates.
The second course delivered was a refresher Human Performance & Limitations course. Whilst of course HP&L is a requirement during initial pilot training, it can be many years since the subject was re-visited. Given the importance of the wide range of elements within HP&L Volotea decided it was important to refresh the subject for their flight crew.
