program in a separate document is that it provides separation for the training program approval requirement from the nonapproved repair station and quality control manuals.  

NOTE:  The PI should determine that the repair station has procedures to provide and thoroughly document on-the-job training.

NOTE:  The aviation safety inspector should keep in mind that a repair station located outside the United States is not required to have any personnel who hold a certificate issued under part 65.  However, the standards of capability for individuals approving an article for return to service are otherwise the same.  Also, the technical knowledge, skills, and abilities of those performing maintenance should be no different for mechanics, inspectors, supervisors, or managers, regardless of where the repair station is located.  Consequently, the FAA expects these repair stations to have training programs that include the same basic elements as for repair stations located within the United States, including a comprehensive needs assessment.

NOTE:  When conducting the training needs assessment, the repair station should place special emphasis on an individual’s ability to read, write, and understand the English language, as required by 14 CFRs.  All documents and records related to employee training must be in English.

NOTE:  Repair stations located outside the United States that hold an approval under the European Aviation Safety Agency or other form of approval or certificate from a civil aviation authority, may already have a formal training program that satisfies the requirements of part 145.  In some cases, these programs might exceed U.S. requirements.  For example, there are certain countries and/or authorities that require knowledge of human factors.  Such additional requirements will not interfere with an FAA approval of the training

program as long as the program also meets all of the U.S. requirements.  Consequently, a repair station located outside the United States does not have to maintain multiple programs.  However, the training program must be FAA-approved.

(6)That the repair station has not revised its training program without sending the revision to the CHDO and PI for approval.
