Addressing A Challenging Situation

There is a critical shortfall of qualified special process personnel in the aerospace industry, as well as a skills gap created by an increasingly globalised workforce. This has increased pressure on all organisations to reduce the time required to train new personnel and ensure they achieve adequate standards of competency at all levels.

Mark Binfield, UTC Aerospace: “For those not yet involved in this area, this is a great opportunity to network and learn about how the industry intends to utilize the framework of eQualified to address the difficulties we all face with the recruitment, training and qualification of aerospace special process personnel.”

Be Part of the Solution

Richard Blyth, Rolls Royce: “eQualified represents a way to safeguard and improve our training and qualifications, which ultimately impact on the future success of our organisations as a whole. Everyone who participates will be contributing to a legacy of helping future generations with aerospace process quality.”

The industry has joined together to create eQualified, a special process personnel qualification program. Using the combined technical expertise of the participating organizations, eQualified:

  • Develops free special process Bodies of Knowledge: documents which capture the knowledge and skills required by personnel operating in specific special process areas.
  • Validates personnel competency through theoretical and practical assessments.
  • Approves training providers to deliver technical courses aligned with the Bodies of Knowledge.
