UK CAA Part 66 Module 9 Human Factors for Foreign Part 145 Approval Holders

FAA UAE Regulations 09Brochure Button

UK CAA Part 66 Module 9 Human Factors Training for Foreign Part 145 Approval Holders aims at providing an understanding of the role of human factors in complex systems in the aviation field.

This course has been specifically developed to meet the needs of both aircraft-certifying staff and component-certifying staff and is I.A.W. UK Regulation (EU) No.1321/2014 Appendix I to Annex III ( Part-66).

"Human factors" refers to the study of human capabilities and limitations in the workplace. It is a study of human-system performance - the interaction of maintenance personnel, the equipment they use, the written and verbal procedures and rules they follow, and the environmental conditions in which they work.

It is the responsibility of everyone in the system to pay maximum attention to human factor exposure in the workplace.

The human factor field has become very popular because the civil aviation industry has become aware of the fact that most aviation accidents and incidents are determined more often by human error than by a technical fault.



This course is aimed at components, engines, and APU-certifying staff, quality managers, line and training managers, other stakeholders, and persons wishing to understand the principles of aviation human factors exposure.


On completion of the module, you will be able to sit a multiple-choice exam, and upon passing it, you will receive a certificate.

The course is focused on discussing the key elements in order to understand human performances and limitations and all the factors that can determine a certain behaviour (the Dirty Dozen).

The main objective of the course is to increase the aircraft maintenance technicians’ awareness regarding the consequences that their actions have on safety.

As a result, the aircraft maintenance technicians who have properly studied human factors will become more responsible in performing the tasks at their workplace, which will lead to risk mitigation.
