Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB), the national carrier of Malaysia, is all set to embark on its Evidence-Based Training (EBT) journey. The airline announced that it has selected Hong-Kong based learning and technology provider, Peak Pacific to provide its product, 'CLEAR' to drive its EBT initiative. The move marks a major shift in the airline's training direction, and also makes it one of the first airlines in the region to adopt a fully integrated EBT philosophy.
According to MAB's chief operations officer, Captain Izham Ismail, "Malaysia Airlines have been looking for an EBT solution as part of our new strategy for pilot training. Peak Pacific is the right fit for us as they have systems built specifically for EBT. They also have a better understanding of our environment and training requirements. The EBT is a new training programme that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has been actively promoting in recent years."
Peak Pacific founder and CEO, Kishor Mistry, said, "We are very pleased to add Malaysia Airline Berhad (MAB) to the growing list of customers taking up our EBT solution, which includes not only EBT, but also the Competency Based Training framework, hence providing customers with a total solution. The MAB team has put great emphasis on getting it right, by starting with an EBT Change Managed Program for Trainers, Admin and Management, plus a Train-the-Trainer program to ensure there is quality and consistency throughout the team and the project long term. The MAB project will include digital (encrypted) certificates to satisfy the Department of Civil Aviation of Malaysia (DCAM) requirements; hence making the transition from a paper/form based solution to a truly digital one."
