Updated eLearning Courses – Human Factors, Fuel Tank Safety and EWIS

Updated eLearning Courses – Human Factors, Fuel Tank Safety and EWIS


Is it that time again when you need to renew your mandatory aviation training? Or are you new to the industry and will soon require Human Factors (HF), Fuel Tank Safety (FTS) and EWIS courses?

To comply with EASA regulations, as an engineer, you are required to refresh these courses every two years.

Over the last few months, we have been updating our HF, FTS and EWIS training courses, to ensure that the technical content is still in line with the legislative requirements, and we are using the correct industry design techniques and andragogical principles in our digital products.

Let’s take a look at what each course involves.

Human Factors (HF)

We understand that mistakes do happen however, these can often be prevented. In this course you will gain an understanding of what human factors are, how they can affect your performance, influence your actions, and how you can recognise and correct errors made whilst improving safety in an aviation environment.


EWIS is also known as Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems.

This mandatory course will help to improve your awareness and skill level in EWIS production, modification, maintenance, inspection, alterations and repairs, and ensure that procedures, methods, techniques and best practices are used when performing maintenance, preventive maintenance, inspection, alteration, and cleaning of EWIS.

Although you may not be directly involved in EWIS maintenance and inspection, you could still have an adverse impact on EWIS integrity through inadvertent contact; for example, during aeroplane cleaning. Therefore, you are still required to complete this training to increase EWIS safety awareness and understand its importance in safe aeroplane operation.

Our EWIS courses are categorised into groups depending on your job role:

  • Groups 1 & 2 – This course is aimed at B1.1 engineers with no limitations, B2 engineers and unlicensed avionic mechanics performing EWIS maintenance or maintenance inspections on wiring systems.
  • Groups 3, 4 and 5 – Part M and Part 21 personnel qualified to perform electrical/avionic engineering, other engineering and/or planning work on in-service aeroplanes. This also applies to B1.1 engineers (limitations 1 and 9*) and unlicenced mechanics performing general maintenance/inspections not involving wire maintenance. *B1.1 licence engineers may have a few limitations, which means you aren’t a fully qualified B1 engineer yet. These can appear on licences that are transferred from one authority to another
  • Groups 6, 7 and 8 – include but are not limited to aeroplane cleaners, cargo loaders, refuelling staff, lavatory servicing personnel, de-icing personnel, pushback personnel, Flight deck crew (Captains and First Officers) and Cabin Crew.

Fuel Tank Safety (FTS)

If you are involved in planning, performing, supervising, and certifying maintenance of aircraft and its fuel system components, then you will need to take this mandatory training.

Our FTS course is designed to ensure that you are aware of the safety risks, hazards and precautions you should take when working in or near fuel tanks, to protect yourself and your colleagues’ safety.
