UK CAA / EASA Part 145 - Understanding the Requirements for Maintenance

TR02 | 2 days

Anyone can read the regulations. However, understanding how the regulator intended it to be applied is the domain of the skilled practitioner. Being skilled in interpreting the intent of the regulation allows you to take a more constructive approach to compliance, enabling a productive process to be aligned to the regulation, rather than the regulation being a burden.
