Computer Based Training
Computer Based Training (CBT) has real benefits for the training of aviation staff, as the training can take place in the working environment and can be undertaken by individuals when they have time or during allocated time slots. CBT is particularly suited to the familiarisation of new staff with company procedures/systems. CBT can be modular in design and developed to run on industry standard multimedia computers.
With careful planning and document design it is possible to utilise material generated for engineering manuals in the preparation of the associated CBT modules. This can make the overall project more efficient and cost effective. The shared information can be supplemented in the CBT with the addition of video, animations, sound clips and exercises.
