The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has given South African-based Cranfield Aviation the initial go ahead to put six of its courses on the e-learning platform.
With over 80 courses available to all flight deck, cabin crew personnel and flight engineers, Cranfield has remained relevant and embraced all advancements in the aviation industry over the past 20 years. This is made evident with its recent training addition, a remote pilot license training for drones.
“We realised that the modern-day learner is no longer content with training in a classroom environment,” said Mandy Tebbit, Director for Cranfield Aviation Training.
“To ensure our longevity as the leading provider of training in aviation, we needed to meet the demands of the new learner and embarked on a search for an e-learning platform that was feature rich yet cost-effective, and selected aNewSpring.”
Tebbit is confident that once the CAA see the results and benefits that online learning provides, approval for other non-practical courses will follow.
“We see a huge demand internationally for human factor training in other industries such as mining as well as oil and gas,” she said.
“Our goal is to take these courses outside of the aviation industry using the aNewSpring platform.”
Paul Hanly, Co-Founder of New Leaf Technologies, said: “We are excited about this project and look forward to the results that we know e-learning will bring to this traditionally conservative industry.”
