Are the courses CASA approved?

CASA does not endorse human factors training courses.  They approve an operator, via a signed off manual or instrument. In this document the operator explains how they are going to provide human factors training to their staff. All of our current clients have CASA approval to use HFTS training programs to meet this requirement. 

The HFTS Human Factors programs meet acceptable means of compliance for CAO 84.3/5, CASR Part 145 and CASR Part 119 human factors.
