Accountable Managers/EASA Form 4 Holders (Nominated Person) - One-to-One Workshop

TR60 | 1 day

Accountable Managers, Nominated Persons or EASA Form 4 holders need to be able to demonstrate to the regulator that they fully understand their accountabilities and are capable of discharging their responsibilities. For Accountable Managers who are new to aviation, the regulatory landscape can be a minefield, whilst for managers who are nominated for Form 4 accountabilities for the first time, the prospect of the interview can be very daunting. This one-to-one workshop is bespoke in nature and designed to help managers in these roles to fulfil their duties effectively.
