The training content of this course is based upon Convergent Performance’s highly successful Aviation Maintenance Never Events (AMNE®) program, proven effective in the private sector and subsequently modified to produce similar impact in naval aviation. It seeks to eliminate the seven behaviors, identified through research, that lead to over 90% of reportable incidents.

The enterprise-level AMNE program also includes a deep dive into four concepts: compliance, competence, awareness (self and situational), and teamwork, which are designed to “surround and prevent” the seven specific behaviors that lead to injuries, incidents, and mishaps.

The HAI HELI-EXPO® one-day, tailored program will include a deep dive into the first of these tools, compliance. Compliance is often assumed but seldom fully achieved. In this course, we will examine the variety of reasons for noncompliance and explore potential solutions to eliminate noncompliance in the workplace. In addition, we will discuss how cultures vary, even within the same organization, and how that can complicate compliance.

The leverage point of the AMNE approach is the Take 5 Briefing Tool. This element of the program focuses on four areas: safety, standards, unresolved questions, and, for the debrief, opportunities for improvement. This simple tool is designed for immediate impact by shedding distractions and ensuring that each maintenance task is begun and completed in the right frame of mind.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • Identify the seven most costly and common aviation maintenance error-related events
  • Understand their role in reinforcing the program objectives to prevent these events
  • Recognize improvement tools and techniques that can be applied personally and professionally to sustain the safety and quality improvements of this program
  • Recognize and identify the five primary reasons for noncompliance
  • Identify the conditions that cause noncompliance to occur in an organization or team
  • Identify the conditions that cause the costliest and most avoidable maintenance errors
  • Identify controls that will aid in the elimination of these events
  • Define the steps aircraft maintenance technicians (AMTs) can use to prevent these events
  • Recognize and demonstrate personal values and attitudes capable of shifting organizational culture to sustain improvements more effectively.
