EBT Instructor Effectiveness & Concordance

Instructor Effectiveness & Concordance

Less checking, more training

The driving factor for effectiveness in any training programme is the quality of your instructors. For EBT in particular, instructor-generated data is key to steering your training programme. Therefore, instructor quality has even more leverage when it comes to determining and delivering suitable, effective training. Proper development in instructional techniques coupled with an effective and transparent Instructor Concordance Assurance Programme (ICAP) is key to success in EBT.

Our EBT instructor effectiveness philosophy

Being an EBT instructor is a big change from a classic (legacy) type instructor. By focussing on developing pilot competencies, instruction is aimed more at the big picture instead of separate tasks. Also, a checking attitude must make room for more training/ instructional skills, particularly aimed at developing non-technical competencies. Done correctly, these new skills drive pilot resilience, as well as instructor professional development. Done incorrectly, an EBT programme may never deliver what it was designed for.

Better concordance, better data, better EBT

Arguably one of, if not the most important factor for EBT effectiveness is instructor concordance. 2019 EASA proposed Baseline EBT regulations require an Instructor Concordance Assurance Programme (ICAP). By ensuring that instructors are in agreement with each other and in alignment with assessment standards, the data they collect becomes more reliable, and the training they provide becomes more accurate and effective.

How we can help you
transform your instructors
into pilot developers

Instructor  EBT Training

We provide a multi-day EBT instructor training course which can be provided to all instructors or on a train-the-trainer basis. Our training programme integrates the latest R&D insights in didactic techniques and performance-based training delivery, integrates concordance assurance and is delivered in interactive, small group sessions. Options include training in scenario building, and integrated concordance training. We offer training globally, or we can host in Amsterdam.

Instructor EBT Reorientation

Our reorientation programme is a combination of a quick performance scan and instructor EBT training. If instructional skills or lack of concordance have been identified as root-cause to performance problems, we offer a tailored course to reorient instructors toward best practices in EBT.

Instructor Concordance Assurance Programme (ICAP)

We support EBT programmes by developing and integrating a Instructor Concordance Assurance Programme (ICAP) tailored to the size and complexity of the EBT programme. Our concordance assurance programme makes use of online concordance assessment to generate reliable concordance data while keeping concordance costs low, while our smart analytics guide you through the process of determining and improving both alignment and agreement to keep concordance training efforts lean and effective.

What you get

This is always tailored to your needs


Our instructor effectiveness support complies with the latest EASA-proposed regulations, including initial instructor training and ICAP requirements. If your organisation is complying to other standards, our programme is flexible to adhere to other regulatory frameworks as needed.


We believe our instructor development support should always be provided by both an experienced flight instructor/trainer combined with a training & learning expert. This is because EBT training significantly developes the instructor in his didactic skills, but also within the context of modern flight training.


We are based in Amsterdam, but we are experienced in catering to the whole world. We can work locally as well as remote, flexible to your specific needs.
