This course focuses on the basics of internal auditing and the development of an internal audit program, providing the tools and methods necessary to meet the international regulatory needs as well as the continuous improvement of the repair station.
Presented by: Ric Peri, AEA vice president of government & industry affairs.
Are you an EASA certified repair station? Did you know there is an internal audit requirement in your EASA supplement?
Do you have foreign certifications that require an internal audit program?
Is your FAA inspector asking you about an internal audit program during their surveillance?
Do you want to enhance your basic quality control program with a proactive internal audit program?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, our new course -- Developing an Internal Audit Program for Repair Stations -- is designed for you.
Developing an internal audit as part of the internal evaluation program helps provide written guidance to management. This safety assurance activity is designed to ensure compliance with regulations; determine conformance with company policies, standards and best practices; and to measure conformance with and the effectiveness of safety risk controls.
As internal audits are performed; findings reveal new hazards and existing system/process/control deficiencies. Follow-up audits ensure the effectiveness of risk controls and corrective actions and results are communicated to appropriate personnel as lessons learned. This leads to continual improvement and proactively enhances safety throughout the organization.
worth the investment of time
A great starting place to develop an IEP when you have none
This will allow you the information to set in motion a fact based audit that is based on continuous improvement,
Its a great course for beginner and still a good refresher
class is very thorough & informative. The instructor relates back to open conversation when giving examples
Other Upcoming Courses
This course is targeted for the home builder or avionics technician who wants to learn about performing an avionics installation in an experimental aircraft. The class focuses on the Garmin G3X Touch system, and a simplified example harness is constructed as part of the hands-on portion of the class. While the G3X Touch system is the primary focus, the wiring principles and general guidance can be applied to any experimental avionics system. From the do-it-yourselfer to the avionics shop looking to carve out a niche, this class has something for everyone.
The Basic Wiring & Avionics Installation course is designed for certificated repairmen, new avionics technicians, aviation maintenance technicians and recent graduates interested in improving or acquiring the skills necessary to perform avionics installations. This three-day seminar employs in-depth theory and hands-on lab exercises to immerse the attendee in the best practices used to plan, manage, and install a general aviation avionics panel. Installation lab includes: Avidyne IFD540 FMS/GPS Navigator, Garmin G5 Electronic Flight Instrument & GAD 29 ARINC 429 data bus module, L3Harris Technologies Lynx NGT-9000 Transponder/ADS-B Transceiver, PS Engineering PMA8000BT Audio Panel and Trans-Cal SSD120-35C-RS-232 Altitude Encoder
The Basic Pitot-Static & Transponder course is designed for entry-level avionics technicians or those looking for basic training on pitot/static & aircraft transponder systems. This two-day course covers the history and theory of operation of pitot/static instruments and transponders, as well as system set-up, hands-on testing, and the troubleshooting skills necessary to perform FAR 91.411 and 91.413 checks.
Understanding the regulations of the repair station is only part of the equation. Like pieces of a puzzle, each regulation is needed to fit together in order to fully view the repair station’s requirements. Understanding the regulatory relationship between the business (part 145); the maintenance it performs (part 43); the parts it uses (part 21); as well as the needs of customers (part 91) are essential to provide regulatory compliant services in aviation maintenance. This session will cover the basics of the maintenance and modification regulations but more importantly, it focuses on their integrated relationship with the business.
This course is designed for technicians who have completed AEA’s Basic Wiring & Avionics Installation Course and/or have a couple years of basic avionics installation practice and are looking for more experience integrating common general aviation installations. Technicians will learn how to plan, install, interface, configure and check out an installation consisting of a Garmin GTN 650 touch screen nav/com/GPS, Garmin GTX 345 transponder and dual Garmin GI 275 primary flight display.
Attendees will learn the proper methods for conducting pitot/static and transponder tests and inspections. This full-day course offers hands-on training, including a regulatory review and an explanation of the proper administrative procedures for completing these critical certifications. With so many questions surrounding ADS-B this course will provide the answers and what you need to know.
This weeklong course provides an interactive environment to learn, understand and implement the regulations that govern repair station design and operations.
