MHF Initial Training

The training will assist organisations to meet the error management and human factors requirements within EASA Part-145. The objectives are to reduce the risks associated with human error and human factors, and improve safety.

MHF Continuation Training

Approved design, production and maintenance organisations must ensure that their personnel receive continuation and refresher training. This is to refresh human factors knowledgeable and ensure staff will stay current in respect to the latest trends and developments in their working environment. The training programme must address the individual needs and requirements of the organisation.

In addition to refreshing knowledge of human factors, continuation training should address organisation specific issues such as quality audit findings, new systems and procedures, changes to approvals.
