The Commission delegated Regulation 2020/2148 regulations for aerodrome and competent authorities came into force at the end of 2022 introducing, amongst others, updated requirements for Training and proficiency check programmes.
The aim of the new Training & proficiency check requirements, including initial, recurrent, refresher and continuation training, for operational personnel is to harmonise rules across Member States by establishing common training requirements that should be complied with by the aerodrome operators.

This course focusses on the EASA regulations ADR.OR.D.017 Training and proficiency check programmes to enables the participants to interpret and implement an effective and compliant Training programme.

Participants will become knowledgeable of roles, required competences and related training activities that should be adopted as part of the aerodrome Management System, as well as establishing a cost-effective proficiency check programme for aerodrome personnel and any other personnel, including personnel of other organisations that operate or provide services at the aerodrome.
