Basically, the only reasons for having an Indoctrination Training program is that you’re trained, by someone you can trust to do so, to do something, and you believe it will benefit the people and those who are interested in your organization and its operations. You can find all sorts of ways to do this, but it will always follow the same lines:
Your agency/business hires qualified people to do something. This is your anchor to your organization. Your anchor knows how to do certain things that are necessary for your organization to function. That is why an Indoctrination Training program is worth the investment.
You may not be willing to perform a desired Indoctrination Training before your anchors have.
Develop a compelling and specific reason why you need an IMT program. Do your research, identify the components of the service (distinct mission areas, functional demands, etc.) and the areas in your program in which you are an IMT member or to which you are assigned. Find the best school that fits your schedule and level of training. Does it have online training? Ask for your school’s ISO training/certification number. On a side note, what is your school’s accreditation status? Most schools have at least some prior experience with IMT. Many programs are basic training, or in the BCT-1 realm, have some degree of dual training.
If you’re serious about making the transition from FAA ground instructor to Indoctrination Training Examiner for your flight operations, then read on to learn the following:
- Prior to a bachelor’s degree in aviation or a commercial airline pilot license, your pilot experience cannot exceed 10 years;
- Prior to your graduate degree in aviation or a commercial airline pilot license, you must have accumulated at least 80 hours of flight time with one pilot before being considered for the Indoctrination Training Examinations;
- You must have obtained a minimum of 2,000 hours of airplane flight time over the previous five years;
- In order to qualify for the Part 125 training requirements set in stone.
An informed and critical field inspection is not a cost-free and time-consuming process. Many inspections are only done for efficiency and some inspectors are actually paid to do them and some inspectors actually want to see that their men are safe in the field.
- Just like any job, aviation safety is more than the job itself. An experienced and well-trained team provides the vital but unpredictable input. Your company will never see that extra-sized paycheck until the building that you’ve just painted comes crashing down, has it not for those who gave the building the precious and required upkeep. This means that if you are one of the only trainees, your operations are actually less safe than if you have a
You can be your own boss (SAFETY) by cutting corners and using your own knowledge of the software and environment for enhanced safety.
- Use old military and aviation software (or prototype or MILSPEC software for data entry) as needed in areas of special significance.
- Play a role in developing an organic capability in your operation or operation area.
- Fill a gap for pilots who would like to learn programming and/or knowledge of systems and/or applications from the military.
- Many operators in operations environments use professional services to complete their requirements. Indoctrination training is widely used in these cases and represents a lower cost alternative to actual contract requirement fulfillment.
Additional training is required to assure you are qualified to run an aviation operation. This is to ensure the pilot is aware of all important safety rules, regulations, procedures, air traffic, weather and a host of other things to be aware of.
Exposure to systems/equipment that operate in abnormal conditions and processes can impact certain abilities. Although this can have both negative and positive outcomes, providing additional training can ensure the pilot has the knowledge to stay safe.
Exposure to fires, high altitudes, distress signals, computer commands, high speed, and any other procedures, codes and language that may be needed.
