EASA Part 147 Practical Instructors, Examiners/Assessors Training – Initial – 2 Days


Sofema Aviation Services Provides Both Initial and Recurrent Training for EASA Part 147 Instructors

Introduction – Instructional Techniques & Pedagogy (EASA Comments)

  • Being an instructor is a specific job and it does require specific qualifications.
  • An expert perfectly knowledgeable on a specific subject may in fact be a very poor instructor and not be able to efficiently transfer his/her knowledge to others if he/she was not trained to instructional techniques by specialists. The same principle applies to examiners and assessors.
  • As a consequence, it is strongly recommended that instructors, examiners and assessors do attend dedicated trainings on instructional and assessment techniques (“Train-the-trainer” and “train-the-examiner / assessor”).
  • Note: EASA regulations and policies do not provide with a specific curriculum for such “train-the-trainer” or “train-the-examiner / assessor” course, and it is up to the Part 147 training organisation to evaluate the quality of the training received by its instructors and, if necessary, to complement it through internal coaching, top-up training, etc….

Note – Practical assessors should meet the same criteria as the Practical instructor of the concerned elements (i.e. assessor for landing gear tasks meet the criteria of landing gear elements practical instructor).
