Purpose of the course

The Training Developers Course (TDC) is the core training activity of the TRAINAIR PLUS Programme. It is the main tool to consolidate the implementation of the Programme among Civil Aviation Training Centres (CATCs), with the creation of a team of updated and well trained professionals as course developers to work in Course Development Units.

Learning objectives

The course provides professionals with advanced techniques for applying the Instructional Systems Development methodology (ISD) under the TRAINAIR PLUS Programme. This is a complete instructional development workshop with focus on the practical aspects of developing training and educational programs.

The course will train civil aviation course developers to design and develop Standardized Training Packages (STPs) for TRAINAIR PLUS competency-based training standards by either upgrading existing conventional courses developed by the CATC become an TP STP or create a new TP STP.

After having successfully completed the course, the trainees will be able to identify the TRAINAIR PLUS training development methodological standards to:
  • Analyse training needs and choose strategies
