EASA has published guidance for Competent Authorities and European aviation training providers on allowing virtual classroom instruction and distance learning with the aim to ensure continuity for planned initial and recurrent theoretical training.
The guidelines serve the following purposes:
- provide advice to training providers that are under the scope of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 (The Basic Regulation) for conducting theoretical parts of the training according to the applicable training program/syllabus in a virtual classroom, and
- provide support to competent authorities for the evaluation and uniform application of common criteria and best practices in the use of new theoretical training methods (that can be used also for training of the authority staff).
