Competency Based Training

Competency Based Training (CBT) is a training and assessment method based on operational data that is characterized by developing and assessing the overall capability of a trainee across a range of core competencies rather than by measuring the performance in individual events or maneuvers.

A CBT program aims to identify, develop and assess the competencies required by pilots to operate safely, effectively, and efficiently in a commercial air transport environment by managing the most relevant threats and errors based on evidence collected in operations and training.
