We will be running courses for Basic Helicopter Ground Crewman in Derbyshire in November.

These courses are being run for a client's own personnel, but they have agreed to allow us to 'top-up' the numbers with our own people - i.e. YOU.

Places will probably be limited and on a first-come-first-served basis.

I will post dates when I get them.

As previously posted, these courses are being run for a single client. They will allow their courses to be topped up by outsiders but I still don't have a date for any but the first course which is exclusively for the client's personnel.

PLEASE NOTE: The Derbyshire courses will NOT result in a City & Guilds qualification.

The course content and end of course exam will be identical, but you will receive a certificate from us only.

I forgot to say that the course will contain four extra modules - Refuelling, and three UnderSlung Load modules

The good news is that the course will be cheaper as there are no C&G fees to pay.

Course dates when I get them.

The best indication I have for the next course in Derbyshire is that it will probably be sometime in the last week of November or the first week in December.

The first course went very well and there could be up to five spare places on the next.

The course consists of the Basic Handlers Course PLUS three load-lifting overview modules and a refuelling module. All for less than the cost that some of you may have heard. Those who pass the Basic will receive Certs from us and an attendance Cert for the 4 extra overview subjects.

If you are interested please e-mail me as, based on the underwhelming interest shown on here, I shan't be looking here very often.

Does anyone know of any recognised industry standards employers look for regarding the ground crew they use?

Do people generally use ground crew?

That's the WHOLE point..... There is NO industry standard!!

In my experience, ground handlers skill level ranges from Good, through Appalling down to Bloody Dangerous.

All operators need to declare is that their staff will be 'Adequately trained' - neither the CAA or the HSE can define 'adequate', I've asked them (neither organisation want to know, by the way).

We think that our courses not only define 'adequate', but set the height of the bar.

Of course they do - at Pleasure Flying and Special Events landing sites - every year.

Please e-mail me if you are interested in raising the standard.

Laughing Is that 'adequately' dangerous? Laughing

I've done ground crewing for pleasure flights, i was thinking more of long line companies/EMS/Private Coastguard providers etc

Just out of interest who provides ground crews for airshows? (Particularly the big ones)

Our courses are aimed at anyone and everyone who is involved in helicopter ground ops.

The larger outfits employ and train their own people, and we would be very pleased to offer our services to them as a sharpener course.

We are now getting serious enquiries from Police ASU's for formal certified - as one force put it the other day, 'externally verified' training. Good on them, constant in-house operations can become stale over time.

I am particularly keen to get people from the 'part-time' handling fraternity too.

I hope to have dates for the next course soon.

PostPosted: Mon Nov 08, 2010 12:23 pm    Post subject: Provisional Course Dates and Cost Reply with quote

December 2nd and 3rd have been suggested, but are provisional.

If the numbers are excessive, we will run a Basic course on the 1st and and another on the 2nd, with the additional four modules on the 3rd.

Anyone who attends from here will be placed on the second Basic on the 2nd and the additionals on the 3rd.

The additional modules are not mandatory for the Basic course qualification, so they are purely voluntary for those attending from here. Please note that there will be no C&G qualification for this course, you will be certificated by us.

Course cost now finalised.

Please e-mail me if you are interested.
