08.12.2020 – Doc 9868, Procedures for Air Navigation Services — Training. Third edition, 2020. (supersedes on 5 November 2020, all previous editions of Doc 9868)
These PANS contain material that provides for the uniform implementation of competency-based training and assessments for the multi-crew pilot licence (MPL) and maintenance personnel. It also includes provisions related to the implementation of evidence-based training in recurrent training in FSTDs and upset prevention and recovery training. This document is complementary to the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) contained in Annex 1 — Personnel Licensing and specifies, in greater detail than in the SARPs, the actual procedures to be applied by training organizations in providing training for aeronautical personnel.
Third edition incorporates new Amendment 7, sources of which are ICAO Competency-based Training and Assessment Task Force (CBTA-TF) and the Secretariat.
Amendment 7 relates to: new definitions; introduction of air traffic control on-the-job training instructors provisions; and minor updates to existing provisions.
