Course Benefits

The Government Safety Inspector (GSI) Personnel Licensing (PEL) Course was developed as a collaborative effort between the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), in order to provide operations, airworthiness, and personnel licensing aviation safety inspectors, on a worldwide basis, with uniform skills and knowledge to conduct specific safety oversight functions. This 15-days course, is intended for Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) involved in developing or upgrading their own State licensing or PEL system. The course is designed for a group composed of personnel assigned to a CAA’s PEL office.

Participants are taught how to establish and maintain a CAA PEL office, and factors to consider when obtaining services for the PEL system from an outside service provider. Participants will be instructed on how to develop knowledge tests for a licensing system and ensure the validity of the tests. Participants will learn the licensing process from application to issuance of a license, in addition to procedures for validation or conversion of a foreign license and suspension or revocation of a license.

Classroom exercises will provide practice in how to determine if an applicant is eligible for the license sought, and if the license applicant successfully completed the demonstrations required for a license. The course is based on ICAO’s Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs), Model Civil Aviation Regulations (MCARs), and technical guidance.
