EASA Part M Reliability Systems Essentials – 1 Day


Reliability can be about far more than simply maintaining Maintenance Programme (MP) effectiveness and reliability. Data collected through the reliability analysis process can be used to support the optimisation of the maintenance process.

In accordance with EASA requirements the operator is ultimately responsible for the management of the reliability and this course is designed to provide a full and detailed understanding of roles and responsibilities regarding the reliability management process.

The purpose of a reliability program is to ensure that the aircraft maintenance program tasks are effective and their periodicity is adequate, in addition the reliability program may result in the escalation or deletion of a maintenance task, as well as the de-escalation or addition of a maintenance task.
