Competency-Based Training & Assessment: Panel Discussion

Message from our Chief Customer Officer, Christian Popp:

As an aviation training professional, you know how crucial it is to prepare the next generation of mechanics, pilots, and dispatchers to meet the industry’s challenges. To enhance safety margins, it’s essential to develop competencies beyond technical skills and address human factors that cause 70% to 80% of aviation accidents and serious incidents.

That’s why I am thrilled to invite you to our upcoming panel discussion on Competency-Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) at the WATS 2023 conference on April 18th. CBTA is a training methodology sponsored by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) that emphasizes developing technical and soft skills, including situational awareness, effective communication, decision-making, teamwork, and resilience training.

Our panel of experts includes Lydia Kes, Head of Research & Development Aviation Education at MBO College Airport; Jason Stanelle, Associate Technical Fellow and Chief of Design, Commercial Maintenance Training at Boeing Global Services; and myself, Christian Popp, Chief Customer Officer at MINT Software Systems (USA).

During this informative and exciting session, you’ll learn why CBTA is an enhancement to the current training methodology, what it entails, and how it benefits organizations and learners. You’ll also have an opportunity to network with fellow aviation training professionals and gain valuable insights from our esteemed panelists.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to enhance safety outcomes with CBTA in today’s aviation industry. Join our panel discussion at WATS 2023 and gain valuable insights that will help you prepare the next generation of aviation professionals.

I look forward to seeing you there!


Chris Popp
