Following a recent audit by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), the leading leisure airline Jet2.com has received formal approval of its use of the ELMS Competence Management System.
The cloud-based solution, which has been built to cater to the specific needs of the aviation industry, has been incorporated as a central component within Jet2.com’s processes and procedures in relation to competence management.
This formal approval, from the competent authority, is validation that the system, and the way it has been integrated into Jet2.com’s procedures, both satisfies and complies with the regulatory requirements.
Jet2.com has embedded the ELMS solution within their engineering and maintenance operations throughout the UK and Europe.
Each colleague within the Jet2.com engineering and maintenance division has access to their own ELMS account, allowing them to share in the responsibility for maintaining their competence records and their validated work experience. These centralised records are then available for further analysis and evaluation by team leaders, departmental managers and quality and compliance.
In addition to satisfying their regulatory obligations, Jet2.com has a tool to identify and enhance the skills within its workforce with the visibility it provides. Following the approval, Chris Hubbard, Director of Engineering for Jet2.com said:
“We are very happy to have received formal approval of the ELMS platform as a key component within our Training, Safety and Risk Management System. As a business we aspire to be at the forefront of safety, quality and personnel competence; the team at ELMS Aviation and their solution have provided us with a powerful tool to continue our development in this arena.”
Also commenting, Richard Mintern, Chairman of ELMS Aviation said:
“This formal endorsement of ELMS by the CAA is a great achievement for both businesses. The Jet2.com team are real advocates of the underlying principles of the ELMS solution and their industry leading approach in this area has shaped our development.”
