EASA Part M Large Aircraft Reliability and Maintenance Program Management & Development – 3 Days


The Maintenance Planning Function is the responsibility of the Operator and Effective Maintenance Planning can contribute significantly to achieving real cost savings within the organization. The training develops an understanding regarding the opportunities to deliver real savings with an in depth understanding of the Reliability process an how this can support Maintenance Program Optimization

Maintenance has come a long way since the early days when maintenance programs owed more to the perception of the maintenance needs, as opposed to the analyzed and justified needs. In addition the role of the regulator was also minimal, and in part developed as a result of events, incidents and accidents.

This practical 3 Day course considers best practice processes for accomplishing the various activities which need to be managed to deliver an effective Reliability program and support the optimization and management of the maintenance program.

This training is highly relevant for persons working in the CAMO or with a direct in involvement in Part M Subpart C Planning functions whether in a Management Supervisory or Administrative role.

It will also be of benefit to Quality Audit Staff and persons who normally work within the Part M CAMO environment, particularly if elements of the Maintenance Planning Process are outsourced.
