If you have been following the HAC newsletter, you will know that our program in Vancouver is already full-to-overflowing, however, there have been a few recent additions to the program that you should not miss.

New Professional Development Courses

CRM for Helicopter Pilots and Air Crew

This late-breaking course is being delivered to help prepare operator-members to deliver a CRM Course that is compliant with AC 700-042. Courses will be mandatory and will need to be approved by your own Transport Canada inspector as reflected in an amendment to your COM by January 31, 2019.

Recent concerns have been raised by operator-members that inspectors have not yet been trained to approve CRM courses. Transport Canada has informed us that there will be no extensions to the January 31, 2019 deadline however, it has indicated that it has prepared an E-Learning CRM module for its inspectors that will be made available to operator-members through HAC within the next couple of weeks. Transport Canada staff have indicated that this will help promote a shared understanding of the requirements set out in the new standards on CRM.

Accelerated Skills Assessment and Job Magnet for Employers
PRESENTER: Leslie Hogan, Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace (CCAA)

CCAA is developing the tools necessary to assess or certify skilled foreign workers, and underemployed or unemployed Canadians, to fill the shortages in the Canadian aviation and aerospace industry. This is an industry-based recognition program for the 17 most in-demand, non-regulated aviation and aerospace occupations with the most significant shortages. By using online assessments, and the successful completion of a practical exam, a job-seeker can reduce the time to have skills recognized or become certified, and employers can assess candidates quickly and accurately.

Developed by Ryerson, Job Magnet is free for employers to use. Applicants are filtered by skill and credentials, so there are no mass responses, only from those candidates whose skills match those listed in the job posting. Employers can create a posting in Job Magnet itself or copy and paste the job information into the website. As soon as a posting is activated, an employer can see how many appropriate potential candidates are registered in the system.
