Planning is often misinterpreted as there is little regulatory assistance. This leads many organisations and personnel to have conflicting views on responsibilities and processes that fall under this important aspect of continuing airworthiness. Planning is often viewed as an expensive overhead; however, the positive contribution from effective planning in both the CAMO and maintenance environments cannot be underestimated in engendering a cost-effective and safe working regime.
How will this course benefit me?
This highly interactive course is designed to meet the needs of staff and organisations who want to implement a proactive approach to delivering a consistently robust maintenance plan. Through examining industry best practice, the course will provide you with knowledge and techniques you need in order to promote greater efficiency in the continuing airworthiness management and maintenance environments, ultimately improving safety.
Our course, covering planning in both the CAMO and maintenance environments, pulls together the ‘How’ we structure to perform maintenance. Delegates completing this course will engender a full understanding of the needs and pressures faced by colleagues performing complimentary functions, resulting in you:
  • Making more informed decisions when planning maintenance
  • Reducing maintenance errors in your organisation by promoting a structured approach to task accomplishment
  • Reducing aircraft downtime by avoiding duplication of work
  • Using your improved understanding of who the key stakeholders are in the framework to create efficient, clear communication channels and achieve faster responses and resolution to the inevitable day to day queries
  • Assisting your internal or contracted maintenance organisations in understanding the CAMO perspective and vice versa
  • Minimising cost and maximise revenue through more effective management of workflow
  • Improving workplace safety levels through effective planning of maintenance tasks
Key areas of focus
  • Safety, regulations and interfaces in continuing airworthiness
  • Maintenance planning fundamentals – roles in the planning process; why we plan; the benefits of planning
  • Development of efficient Maintenance schedules
  • Planning for/in CAMOs and Maintenance Organisations
  • Data, Records and mandatory requirements
  • Controlling, demonstrating and monitoring successful planning
