Adaptive Learning Takes AQP to the Next Level

Posted by Area9 on Jul 11, 2018 9:00:00 AM

The implementation of the Advanced Qualification Program (AQP) in 1990 changed aviation industry training for the better. With its emphasis on company-specific, innovative, and flexible training, and its data collection capacity for auditing purposes, AQP is a more creative and effective approach to aviation industry training than more traditional methods. And the results show that it works: there are fewer fatal airline accidents now than in the past — 2017 was a benchmark year for airliner safety.
