We can offer you courses on the following AIRBUS aircraft: A300, A310, A300-600, A320 family, A330 and A340.
For training on the A320 family and the A330, Sabena technics training can offer you courses using the Airbus Competence Training ACT System. This concept reduces the time needed to train your technicians and to get them back on the job. The training method is task oriented in opposition to the classical knowledge focused approach.
During real life scenario exercises students perform actively operational tasks on a virtual aircraft, reducing the practical training needed on real aircraft for a complete type qualification. Likewise, all "differences courses" also include part of the practical training and hence reduce the time needed on a real aircraft.
Thanks to the ACT system, Sabena technics training can offer you the following Cross Maintenance Qualification (CMQ) for the A320 family from the A330 and on for A330 from the A320 family or the A340.
A Cross Maintenance Qualification (CMQ) consists in taking credit from learning already done. That is to say technicians qualifying from one Airbus fly-by-wire type to another only have to follow a "difference training" instead of attending a full type training in order to acquire an aircraft type qualification. This leads to a reduction of training costs, time and effort.
An ACT course is composed of three parts:
The content of the theoretical course complies with the requirements defined in the related documents for Certifying Staff. The trainee receives training on all systems listed and must demonstrate by knowledge examination a detailed understanding of the listed systems, their operation and maintenance.
Practical course P1
The use of the virtual aircraft enables the trainee to perform practical actions inside the classroom, such as operational and functional checks, troubleshooting, fault isolation, MEL dispatch and other necessary procedures to confirm their competence for task performance. Component location & replacement training subjects are covered by the use of either real or virtual aircraft, synthetic training devices, mock-ups or simulation.
Practical course P2
Practical hands-on training that requires the availability of the real aircraft.
