When applying the fact that training is associated with Human Performance, ongoing training becomes a tool to capture process deviations from performance parameters. Deviations from performance parameters are not lack of knowledge, but it is a human factor to take the path of least resistance and to deviate for effectiveness to reach a common goal. Most standardized processes are arbitrarily chosen based on opinions. This does not make the process wrong, bad, incorrect, or dangerous, it is just the fact that someone established the process based on their experience and personal view of what to them made sense. From these processes, rules and job performance expectations are derived to establish the lowest bar acceptable in aviation safety. One example of a new rule that was implemented after an accident was the sterile cockpit rule. This rule was implemented due to one notable accident which caused a crash just short of the runway conducting an instrument approach in dense fog. Training is a tool to assess the effectiveness of standardized procedures, capture deviations and excel in performance above the lowest acceptable safety bar.
|Training is time sensitive|
|Training is to train for resilience.|
Training works when a candidate learns that they are consistently capable of completing a task successfully. During the old-SMS, a task completed once was all that was required, while in the new era of SMS, training is the success of completing a task over and over again. SMS training is to build confidence as a resilience tool when things go wrong, and unexpected resources must become available to a person. Resilience training also includes training of the Accountable Executive to comprehend the SMS without being overwhelmed with details.
