What are the EASA requirements for a Line Training Captain?

To become a Line Training Captain (LTC), you must be a Captain within your respective Operator.

A Captain nominated to be an LTC does not necessarily need to be an instructor (SFI/TRI) or an examiner (TRE). 

Each Operator can have different requirements for their Line Training Captains. 

Requirements will typically include: 

  • Familiarity with the Operator’s philosophy, procedures, and kind of operation 
  • Have completed 1 or more proficiency checks with the Operator
  • Profound knowledge of the administrative procedures, contents in Operations Manuals, documents, forms, and related records
Where is the course conducted?

The Line Training Captain CRM course is available at our training facilities in central Copenhagen, online as a live webinar or in-house at the client’s location.

What is the price for 1 participant?

Many clients find it beneficial to train a group of Line Training Captains together to complete the CRM assessment course. Therefore, we offer an advantageous price for signing up to 5 participants.

In addition, we always recommend signing up 2 or more participants to the course. This is because we include several role-play scenarios, group discussions, and other interactive activities designed to prepare Line Captains for their roles in the best possible way.

If you only need to sign up one participant, please contact us, and we’ll find a solution that works for you.

How do I pay for a course? 

Option 1: Secure your spot by paying the full amount upfront using Visa, Visa Electron, Maestro, or Mastercard.

Let us know your preferred payment method, and we make sure to find a solution.
