College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Applications in Crew Resource Management
In this course, students examine the common concepts of crew resource management (CRM) as developed by major air carriers and explore the theoretical basis of such training. Topics such as supervision of crewmembers, counseling, manner and style, accountability, role management, and use of simulators and computer-based instruction will be studied. Each student has the opportunity to become knowledgeable in a specific area of CRM by assisting in the development of a CRM research document as part of the course.

The goal of this program is to give the student an opportunity to gain a working knowledge of CRM concepts and an opportunity to apply these concepts. Applications may include individual or group reports identifying the application of CRM. The students will use existing FAA, military and civilian industry regulatory and advisory guidance to shape the development of a CRM application.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Discuss the history of CRM, through the identification of the onset, evolution and the current state of CRM in both the civilian and military environments.

2. Relate the concept of CRM to principle safety programs and the overarching Safety Management System (SMS).

3. Demonstrate the impact of organizational culture and team factors in CRM by analyzing how organizational climate impacts the effectiveness.

4. Evaluate subordinate/superior relationships of flight crew and related issues such as assertiveness and followership.

5. Analyze the aeronautical decision making process.

6. Demonstrate the concept of situational awareness and how individuals and crews manage this awareness, especially in highly automated aircraft.

7. Examine workload management skills that enhance or detract from crew performance.

8. Identify and apply the key components of effective CRM training.

9. Evaluate differences in CRM programs within civilian, military and single-seat pilot environments.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

10. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013).

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
