LOSA as an EBT/CBTA Curriculum Builder and Effectiveness Measure

Since 1996, the Line Operations Safety Audit (LOSA) has been used primarily as a safety management system tool for monitoring normal flight operations. However, an underutilized aspect of LOSA is its ability to provide observable evidence for trainers wanting a frontline performance outcome measure of training. This presentation will cover the history of LOSA and outline ways data can be used to develop EBT/CBTA curriculum and measure its effectiveness on TEM performance.
