EBT Regulator Guidance

EBT Regulator Guidance

From compliance to competence

Our regulator support is oriented toward knowing the difference between reliable, effective EBT programs and those that are not. As EBT programs develop and training programs migrate from prescriptive regulations to performance-based regulations, CAA and oversight organizations must lead the way when it comes to setting performance indicators and acceptance criteria. EBT is a positive evolution for the better of aviation safety, however it absolutely depends on meaningful and empowered oversight to drive the quality of EBT to its maximum potential.

A new era of regulation

Effective oversight of performance based training programs such as EBT require regulators to gain a thorough understanding of the different risks that these programs present as compared to legacy programs. The role of regulators will shift from one of compliance checking, toward one of active risk assessment and performance valuation. This shift requires new knowledge, competencies and attitude.

EBT Training
for Regulators

For effective oversight of EBT programs, it is essential to understand the philosophy, principles, practices and implementation process of EBT. We share our knowledge on EBT instructor development, program development and performance insights (including instructor concordance – ICAP) to provide you a solid knowledge base for your EBT oversight program. Our training is tailored to your needs in scope and duration.

EBT Performance
Criteria Guidance

The oversight of performance based training requires a shift from prescriptive, compliance-based approval methods to performance-risk balancing methods. One of the most difficult aspects of this change is setting suitable criteria and performance requirements that permit the growth, learning and development of EBT programs, while at the same time ensure an adequate (and at a minimum equivalent) level of safety of operations. We help regulators with stakeholder engagement, setting criteria for EBT programs, and support the possible development of safety ases and risk analyses for such oversight changes.
