Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will be hosting a two day course titled “Using psychometric profiling tools to increase the effectiveness of pilot selection and training” on 11 and 12 February in Berlin. The course is aimed at aviation recruiters, trainers and sim instructors who want to better understand personality profiles and increase the effectiveness of the psychometric profiling tools they use for selection and training. Attendees will also learn about the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recommendations about the EASA regulation that requires operators to undertake psychological assessments of aircrew during recruitment.

At the end of the course trainees shall demonstrate their ability using profiles in a practical way to move beyond “checking the box” and into utilizing this essential tool in both selection and aviation training, updated with the latest recommendations and the forthcoming EASA regulation that requires operators to undertake psychological assessments of aircrew during recruitment to the required standard with additional industry best practice.

The course will be taught by Karina Mesarosova, an adjunct professor with Embry-Riddle Worldwide and an EAAP-accredited aviation psychologist as well as a member of the British Psychological Society and the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations.

This course is recognized by EAAP. For more information or to register, please email: europe@erau.edu.
