Professional In-Country

Short Courses & Seminars In association with a network of experienced trainers and specialists in their fields, BBSI offers organisations worldwide, cutting-edge, aligned and competency-based training programmes on a wide range of topics, with special emphasis on current best practices and up-to-the-minute techniques. These short 3-10 day training programmes are designed to assist organisations in the implementation of strategies to enhance organisational performance and personnel skills among their staff. Professional Short Training Programmes

Competency & Skills Management. An organisation's core competencies form the foundation for its strengths. Identifying the key abilities of working teams, the relevant job families and establishing important competencies will assist staff in developing individual expertise and skills. BBSI will assist clients to determine, manage and develop core and specific competencies and skills at all levels to improve overall performance in key areas. Training & Performance Support. BBSI will assess the need for custom-designed learning environments and creative training solutions to provide clients with the overall performance results they require. Improvements develop exponentially over time, with dramatic results being achieved by involving the client in the design process. Performance Measurement. Once BBSI has assisted clients to establish effective training and performance systems, ongoing performance measurement by our specialist trainers and consultants ensures that an organisation is achieving the performance improvements it expects and provides clients with the information necessary to fine-tune the ongoing process of development.

Technical Courses: Mechanical Engineering Electrical Engineering Maintenance & Reliability Instrumentation & Controls Electronics & Communication Contracts & Projects Oil & Gas Industry Petrochemical & Processes Health & Safety Civil & Construction Instrumentation & Process Control

Once a client has provided BBSI with a detailed specification of their precise training requirements, we source specialist and experienced tutors to design and structure a 3-10 day training programme to meet the specified learning outcomes. The duration of the course will depend on the degree of specialisation and the amount of content to be included. The client will be responsible for providing suitable in-house or in-country training facilities, and also for meeting the costs of tuition fees, and the BBSI tutor's expenses, ie international travel, food and accommodation and local travel.

PROFESSIONAL IN-COUNTRY SHORT COURSES & SEMINARS

Management & Leadership Human Resource Management Project Management Customer Care & Public Relations Administration Contracts, Purchasing & Inventory Logistics & Transport Sales & Marketing Information Technology & Networking Hospitality Customer Service Management in the Medical Profession Coaching & Mentoring

Human Performance Analysis. BBSI will examine a client's organisational structure, management systems and processes, environmental elements, and people motivators and behaviours to determine which aspects are enhancing staff performance and which require change.

Consultancy Services Performance & Training. BBSI provides consultancy services to organisations seeking to ensure that their training expenditure addresses shortfalls in the performance of their respective business, industry or public-sector organisation. As organisations grow more complex, it is no longer safe to assume that individual, departmental or organisational performance problems can be corrected simply by training. The obstacle may not be the lack of skills or knowledge, it could be an unnoticed bottleneck in corporate communications, ineffective management behaviours, ineffective processes, an environment that inhibits motivation, or any one of many other diverse but interrelated factors. BBSI can assist organisations to assess the magnitude and likely reasons for shortfalls in performance, and recommend strategies for improvement that might involve innovative, creative and less costly solutions than merely to increase the training budget.

ICAO Aviation English-Language Proficiency. The current Joint Aviation Requirements for Flight Crew Licensing (JAR-FCL) state that the National Aviation Authorities may delegate the task of assessing the ICAO aviation English language proficiency to language-assessment bodies. BBSI is a British Council accredited language training school and as such is accepted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority to conduct the language assessment for the purpose of obtaining certification for the ICAO aviation English language proficiency requirements for ICAO Levels 4 (Operational), through to Level 6 (Expert). JAR-FCL requirements require an impartial assessment process; the language assessment should be independent of the language training. To ensure this requirement BBSI uses the services of an independent company, Global Aviation Language Ltd (GAL) using what is known as the 'Alpha Tango' test to conduct the assessment. The assessment may either be conducted either on a face-to-face basis, with an assessor, or alternatively the applicant may conduct a computer-based assessment. Both assessments take approximately 45 minutes to complete and are digitally recorded and retained for the period of the level awarded ie 3 years for ICAO Level 4, or 5 years for ICAO Level 5. The computer based method of assessment may be conducted at a remote site anywhere in the world. However, the assessment must be invigilated and ID checks made by a person acceptable both to BBSI and GAL. Applicants holding aircrew licenses issued by countries outside the UK should ensure that the UK language proficiency certification is acceptable by their respective National Aviation Authority. A sample of the computer on-Line assessment is available on request from BBSI.

Our courses are adapted to meet the guidelines in the ICAO English-language proficiency descriptors and can be structured to meet the precise requirements of individual sponsors.

routine or non-routine, in which all aviators must be competent, and each requires familiarity with many lexical domains for which there are associated words. The 'one-size-fits-all' scenario is avoided and sponsors need to define very clearly the topics on which they require particular focus.

BBSI courses comprise 40 lessons weekly (30 hours) of directcontact, tuition and skills practice. Typical course structure is as follows:

Functionality. To assist in the process of rapid learning and functional development, language and skills development is reinforced by specialised skills practice. The aim is to provide trainees with the opportunity to function, regardless of individual skills levels, at the standard of ICAO Level 4. Emphasis is placed on speaking and listening skills, with continual practice in context, utilising audio facilities where appropriate, such as ATIS broadcasts, as well as audio examples of aircraft emergencies, incident reports relating to non-routine radio phraseology and unusual aviation-related requests and incidents.

Training Objectives The aim at BBSI is to train to a standard whereby aviators acquire sufficient language proficiency to manage all their potential ongoing operational needs. Our courses cover not only routine phraseologies, but emphasise those types of communication not encompassed by phraseologies, such as non-routine situations and aircraft emergencies. Emphasis throughout is placed on developing the following: * general English-language communication skills * communication for general & specialised aviation functions * understanding of aviation vocabulary & terminology for different specialisations * oral proficiency skills for routine & unusual ATC situations & aircraft emergencies * awareness of aviation context & environment * progress towards/beyond ICAO Operational Level 4 descriptor standards

Course duration can be between 2 and 24 weeks, depending on the English-language entry level of participants and the precise requirements of respective aviation sponsors. Course Content & Structure General English. The general-English language elements of our training aim to enhance general confidence in all 4 language skills through extensive practice. Aviation English. Training in Aviation English targets aviation language and development of communication skills in context, depending on the precise specialisation of participants. Content is structured around published ICAO guidelines for English language proficiency. We incorporate the necessary elements of pronunciation, structure, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension and interaction, in addition to standard, non-standard and unusual phraseology, terminology and vocabulary. Moreover, we focus particularly on numerous case studies, where the use of incorrect or non-routine language has either led to aviation disasters, or has exacerbated situations that might easily have been resolved safely through effective communication. Practice Activities. Practice activities include role-play and simulations; aircraft emergencies; bomb threat/alert/scare and contingency actions; contingency actions (general); special requests; case studies of actual incident/occurrence reports (all found to be attributed to poor English comprehension), combined with inappropriate non-standard radio phraseology; use of authentic and quasi-authentic audio, such as ATIS; and both standard and non-standard operational situations. Specialised Content. Specialist aviation content includes a full inventory of events, domains and sub-domains that characterise the day-to-day communications of ATCOs and pilots. These events and domains represent air traffic control situations,
