The Online Component:
Trainees Build Confidence: Trainees can learn at their own pace in a non-threatening environment. They build confidence because of the number of assessment tools, feedback to a variety of quizzes and tracking of their progress. This prepares them for a higher level of learning during the on-site sessions.
Trainees Hear and Repeat the Language: Jeppesen's courses use multiple voice professionals who demonstrate correct usage of Aviation English. Trainees can listen to each lesson as often as they want to help them get comfortable with the language. Sophisticated pronunciation exercises are a part of the Aviation English Program. This allows trainees to record and get feedback on their speaking skills.
Trainees have Maximum Flexibility: Rather than leaving their work to travel to a training facility for a long period of time, trainees can schedule their Aviation English training around their individual schedules — at the office, at a training center, at home, while traveling — anywhere they have access to a PC.
The Onsite Component:
Professional Trainers:Jeppesen certified trainers, who are ESL professionals, deliver the on-site portion of the program.
Expansion of Online Content:The on-site sessions give the trainees a deeper understanding of the course content while they are developing their language skills.
Development of Speaking Skills:During the classroom sessions, trainees get extensive practice in the listening and speaking skills that are so important for radiotelephony. Trainees participate in a variety of activities to improve their use of ICAO phraseology and to learn how to communicate in both standard and nonstandard situations -- skills that pilots and air traffic controllers need to reach ICAO's required Operational Level 4.
Controlled Setting: The controlled setting of a classroom provides the opportunity for additional testing and evaluation.
