CFI & Grade 1 Flight Instructor Instructional Technique Workshops

By now, CFI's of Schools offering Instructor Training will have received this important documentation from Guild of Air Pilots and Air Navigators (GAPAN) and the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council. The workshop is designed to provide innovative instructional technique information and practice. Whilst aimed at those CFIs and Grade 1 instructors who are, or may be, involved in training new instructors, the practical techniques covered in the workshop will be relevant to all types of flying training instruction. The knowledge gained from the workshop will also be beneficial in the new competencies that will be introduced as part of the new CASR Part 61 legislation. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority has been fully involved in course development and supports the workshop.
In brief, the three day workshop includes:
Principles of adult learning
Mentoring/coaching/1:1 training
Lesson planning
Assessment techniques
Methods of delivery
Cultural awareness
Documentation and record keeping
Issues update

In addition to offering this workshop as a professional development opportunity, TLISC is also providing you with the opportunity to enrol for a potential Statement of Attainment for the units. This is not a requirement for Registration for the three days but is offered as an extra formal recognition of successfully completing the two units of competency. It will require your commitment to compile the required Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) materials and to attend an assessment workshop four weeks after the three day course at the same venue. One of the requirements of the RPL will be that you deliver a training session covering all critical aspects of evidence, elements, associated performance criteria, required skills and knowledge in the unit TAEDEL401A.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to gain these qualifications at no cost to the candidates. Enrollment's close 5th April 2012 and seats are limited to 12 candidates per venue.
Melbourne 1,2,3MAY12
Sydney 8,9,10MAY12
Perth 15,16,17MAY12

PS: A link now exists on the GAPAN website for the application form.

I never got this, probably because CASA impose an arbitrary number of hours of doing instructor training before you can apply to do instructor training so I don't count...

With only 12 places per city they don't seem to be particularly serious about getting these much needed skills out there.

HOWEVER I hope this will address some of the problems I see with instructor training:

That the only barrier to entry to a course is money, there is no assessment pre course as to whether or not Bloggs is a suitable candidate.

That some Grade Threes come out with no idea of what the Day VFR Syllabus even looks like, let alone how to assess the students competencies.

Getting instructors to do their paperwork properly and accurately has always been one of the hardest things I've found as a CFI, because no-one taught them at instructor school how important it is or how to do it. eg I've had studes presented for flight test ticked off as "competent" in something they were completely unaware of because the instructor couldn't be bothered to teach them/didn't know was necessary because they refused to refer to the syllabus/just ticked the box so they could get home. THIS IS A BIG SAFETY ISSUE that doesn't seem to be being addressed at some instructor shools at all!

That some instructors teach OWTs instead of facts with references. Because they still operate under the "my instructor said" method of proof and have very little depth of knowledge.

Few new instructors have any idea about thier legal responsibilites and liabilites, ethics or anything else.

Anyway this is a step in the right direction.
