Madinah – Training to Inspect to JIG Standards now confirmed

Training to Inspect to JIG Standards – December 2019 – Madinah, Saudi Arabia

JIG is delighted to confirm its next Training Course for Members, to help their personnel to inspect airport operations to JIG Standards.  This course, Training to Inspect to JIG Standards, has been developed for experienced Aviation Fuel Supervisors and/or Inspectors who wish to enhance their skills in this vital area.  The course has been developed by JIG, its Operations Committee, and external consultants who have vast experience in inspecting operations globally.

Completing the course successfully does not automatically make you a JIG Inspector, but it will form part of the requirements for future JIG Inspectors.

The 5 day course has been designed to be highly interactive with a considerable amount of practical work on a large and complex aviation fuel facility.  The course covers:

  1. Why we inspect
  2. The inspection process of preparation, conducting an inspection, making recommendations and writing a report
  3. Hands-on field experience in the airport depot, looking at all aspects of what and how to inspect
  4. Inspection of quality control documentation and a review of frequently found issues
  5. Inspection of hydrant operations
  6. Issues around filter inspections with practical field demonstrations
  7. Into-plane fuelling operations
  8. Vehicle pressure control testing, with time spent at the test rig
  9. How to handle safety as part of an inspection

Documentation and records

At the end of the course there will be a short exam and a pass rating will enable candidates to continue towards a JIG Inspector qualification, within a few months. Please note that as the JIG Standard and Inspector Qualification are both of a very high level, candidates with insufficient background knowledge and prior inspection experience may not be able to reach the required level to continue immediately.

The course will be held at APSCO & GACA, Madinah Airport.

The course will run from Sunday 8th – Thursday 12th December 2019 inclusive.
