At the beginning of this month MJ Airport completed the successful delivery of online training via MS Teams. This led to the creation of a ‘virtual classroom’ in the office. Further trials using Microsoft Teams have resulted in the creation of an online ‘Aerodrome Wildlife Hazard Management Recurrent Training Course’. Significantly, this has involved creating an online exam, which when completed allows the learner to download a certificate. Results from the exam are automatically received with feedback provided.
Moving forward, the intention is to adapt as many training courses into this kind of online format.
Having attended a number of webinars on the subject of online learning, online assessment will be possible across some core airside operations topics. This will likely include the application of scenario, role-play and simulation exercises, all of which can be enhanced with the use of photos, videos and maps.
