The abilities of an instructor determine whether or not a training program will achieve its objectives and train students to a successful conclusion. Instructors need to have not only the knowledge of the subjects of the course (theoretical knowledge) but also of training techniques (training competency)
ICAO Doc 9868.- Procedures for Air Navigation Services, Training, defines a competency as the combination of Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSAs) required to perform a task at a prescribed standard. Competencies represent how a person should perform in order to achieve the objectives of their job.
The course is delivered according to EASA applicable aviation instructors standards.
The course is based on “Facilitating Techniques” and the implementation of “all pedagogical resources” to be used, which will depend on the level of knowledge of the students and “their culture”.
“The differences of cultures and the way people learn depending to them” must be taken into consideration to decide the level of facilitating to be used according to the training circumstances.
All along the course, case studies with videos, roll playing, presentations by participants and group activities will take place.
The attendees will make presentations every day and their performance will be assessed by their pairs and the facilitator.
