EASA approves Airbus’ maintenance “Synchronous Distance Learning”

Airbus announced that to support their customers and offer them the opportunity to optimize this period of travel restrictions, Airbus Training Services has set up and obtained EASA-approval for a “Synchronous Distance Learning” solution for theoretical certifying maintenance courses and non-certifying courses. Customers will be able to participate in local examination sessions where Airbus stations are available – with the support of its Field Service Representatives who are trained and registered to be an “examination invigilator.”

Once travel restrictions are lifted and whenever practical training is required, the training effort will be limited to organizing these practical sessions. In short, this distance learning solution allows customers to perform theoretical maintenance training locally, led by a real-time remote Airbus instructor, to receive local examination sessions managed by a local Airbus exam proctor.
