Phase 1 is the basic or foundation course intended for all AIS students irrespective of destination and is primarily knowledge based. Phase 2 follows the AIS Functions developed by the CASP (Common AIS Staff Profiling) group and is essentially on-the-job training with periods of classroom study. 9 . the guidelines allow transparency for designers. Through development of a harmonised approach in modular format. The guidelines are intended as working documents to form the basis of detailed training plans. the guidelines provide sufficient flexibility to fulfil the training needs of most AIS organisations. Instructors have the freedom to create their own lesson plans. instructors and students alike. Presented in the form of common core content and training objectives. Two phases of AIS training are proposed. It is more practical in its approach.AIS Training Development Guidelines EXECUTIVE SUMMARY These training guidelines have been developed to assist training managers and course designers to create efficient and effective training programmes to meet the operational requirements of the Aeronautical Information Services.

SCOPE The AIS Training task force revised and updated the EATCHIP guideline documents HUM.GUI-03 (November 1998) Specification of Training Tools and Methods for AIS Training has limited appeal. The AIS Team (at its 19th and 20th meetings) agreed on the Terms of Reference for the creation of an AIS Training Task Force (AIS-TF).g. These TOR were reviewed by TFG 20 and subsequently passed to HRT 21 for approval. 3.

Being better prepared for the introduction of automated AIS systems. Consequently this document was not revised and should no longer be used. the Training Focus Group will report the results to the Human Resources Team”. the provision of aeronautical information has changed from printed to electronic format). INTRODUCTION The AIS community has commented on the number of new developments and changes that have taken place since the original training guideline documents for AIS were developed in 1997.ST05.

The content was updated in line with recent developments in AIS operating practices.2000. The AIS environment has largely changed from manual operations to automated processes (e. 12 .ET1. Contributing to the global environment of AIM. ICAO Annex 15 has introduced new requirements on skills and knowledge required for different AIS functions.

The approach taken by CASP identifies work in terms of functions as opposed to jobs. After discussion and deliberation the Task Force agreed to accept this approach and apply it to the revision of the document Phase 2 – Specialist.

The diagram on the next page illustrates this approach. Phase 2 could take place during on-thejob training with time in the classroom / simulator to acquire the desired knowledge/skills for a particular AIS operational function. This is considered to provide a more flexible means of developing training allowing any AIS provider. The AIS Training Task Force has endeavoured to create a working document reflecting the training needs of the Aeronautical Information Services as it moves from manual operations to automated processes. The module General Data Management should be considered common to all students and a prerequisite for the other AIS Functions. would remain essentially unchanged.

It was decided that Phase 1. AIM OF THE DOCUMENT This guideline document presents common core content and training objectives to assist course planners in the creation of appropriate training courses for ab-initio AIS students. In a similar manner ARO personnel would receive knowledge of data processing .AIS Training Development Guidelines 4. It also takes into account the mandatory requirement for Air Navigation Service Providers to introduce quality and safety management systems.

A list of the most relevant competencies for Phase 2 training (AIS Functions) can be found at the beginning of Part 3. 14 . The members of the Task Force felt that the time to complete Phase 1 . COMPETENCIES The Common AIS Staff Profiling (CASP) group developed competencies to assist Human Resources personnel with the recruitment of staff to AIS. The AIS Training Task Force decided to promote these competencies (mapped and prioritised by the CASP Consultation seminar July 2003) as being beneficial to training development in assisting OJT instructors to make the most effective use of the teaching techniques available to them. 6.Basic AIS training would be approximately 12 weeks. e.

1.1 Classification of Training Objectives – Action Verbs Level 0 Essentially ‘nice to know’ material which will aid the student’s overall understanding of a subject. Requires a basic knowledge of the subject. Level 3 Requires a thorough knowledge of the subject and the ability to apply it with accuracy. Level 3) the student will co-ordinate. It is the ability to remember essential points. In a given situation the student will say that coordination should be done and with whom (the student appreciates the necessity for co-ordination). Requires an understanding of the subject sufficient to enable the student to discuss intelligently. CLASSIFICATION OF TRAINING OBJECTIVES The General Objectives found at the beginning of each subject/function indicate the overall teaching task to be achieved by the instructor. The individual is able to represent for him or herself certain objects and events and to act upon these objects and events. the trainee is expected to memorise data and recall it. The Training Objective associated to each sub-topic/sub-function determines what has to be achieved by the student. The student should be able to make use of his/her repertoire of knowledge and understanding in order to develop plans and activate them. that is he/she will apply the techniques and procedures learnt (derived from Brien and Eastmond 1992/1994).AIS Training Development Guidelines PART 4 – APPENDICES 1.
