EASA regulations require all Part 145 maintenance organisations to implement a program of Maintenance Human Factors (MHF) training for all licensed engineers, managers and other personnel working in the aircraft maintenance environment. The Maintenance Human Factors Trainer course is ideal for participants who will be involved in the delivery of Human Factors Training programs within aviation maintenance organisations. The course covers the latest developments in MHF Training, Maintenance Error Management Systems, how to implement and maintain the organisation’s MHF program and meet regulatory requirements.

The course builds facilitation techniques which are crucial to delivering effective Human Factors training. The aim is to develop fully competent trainers who are comfortable developing Human Factors materials appropriate to the unique requirements of their organisation. The course programme fulfils the MHF training requirements of EASA, FAA, MAA RA1440 and major regulatory bodies worldwide.

In-person or Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) Options
The MHFT program is 5 days and is available in-person at our UK training centre or in-house at client's location, and also online via Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT).
