APS MCC preparation

Hello everyone,

Quick question regarding the title aforementioned, if anyone has done an APS MCC program or similar, i will be embarking in one soon. Would like to know how much preparation is required prior to the commencement of the course? which specific areas should be focussed on. I personally plan to go through the relevant FCOM chapters specifically procedures to get accustomed to the different phases and PF/PM roles, together with generic SOPs for the cockpit flows. Any advice is appreciated.

Know your profiles, SOP's, Memory Items and call outs that's the bread and butter of an MCC.

The less you have to think about that stuff the more capacity you have to actually fly the airplane.

Keep learning those things as much as you can as the less you need to think about them the quicker you adapt to jet flying.

Arm chair flying with a poster of the cockpit on the wall does wonders for that stuff. Practice a take off with the call outs and SOP's it helps a lot.

I can't agree with Negan more. I teach the APS MCC, both ground school and SIM and the people who struggle on the course are the people that haven't done the required preparation. Of course by the time these individuals pitch up and realise there is so much to learn, there simply is not the time to catch up and they struggle with the simulator phase.

The course is continuously assessed using the competency based training method, where SIM 10 is an assessment to which you are required to perform to a specified standard to be awarded an APS MCC.

If you do the work as per Negans advice, you will be fine and you will enjoy and get a lot of out the course.

All the best.

As much as possible!

Get the manuals from the ATO and see what they recommend.
