Aviation Maintenance

Maintenance Human Factors Trainer (MHFT) Course

The Maintenance Human Factors Trainer course is ideal for participants who will be involved in the development and delivery of training of Human Factors within aviation maintenance organisations.

Statistics show that error in maintenance operations significantly contributed to the 70-80% of aviation accidents attributable to human error. EASA regulations require all Part 145 maintenance organisations to implement a programme of Maintenance Human Factors (MHF) training for all personnel involved in aviation maintenance operations.

Maintenance Human Factots Trainer (MHFT/MHFI)

The aim of MHF training is to increase safety, quality and efficiency in aviation maintenance operations by reducing human error and its impact on maintenance activities. The course syllabus fully covers the MHF training requirements for EASA 145 engineering organisations.

The 5 day course develops practical skills including instructional techniques, facilitation, critique and feedback. Throughout the course we promote an awareness of our behavioural attitudes to improve and develop communication and interpersonal relationships with all those involved in the aviation system. The training addresses the nature of your company's operations and procedures, which produce particular difficulties and unusual hazards.

The knowledge and skill the instructor possessed were beyond impressive, orchestrating the teaching potential from all my fellow students of varied styles to produce confident and competent individuals, who I’ve no doubt will do on to great success in their respective fields.
