Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB), the national carrier of Malaysia, is all set to embark on its Evidence-Based Training (EBT) journey. The Airline announced that it has selected Peak Pacific to provide its product, ‘CLEAR’ to drive its EBT initiative. The move marks a major shift in the airline’s training direction, and also makes it one of the first airlines in the region to adopt a fully integrated EBT philosophy.

The CLEAR Suite is the flagship software from Peak Pacific, the Hong Kong-based Learning & Technology provider that is a domain expert and leading provider of Aviation Learning solutions.

According to MAB’s Chief Operations Officer, Captain Izham Ismail, “Malaysia Airlines have been looking for an EBT solution as part of our new strategy for pilot training. Peak Pacific is the right fit for us as they have systems built specifically for EBT. They also have a better understanding of our environment and training requirements. The EBT is a new training programme that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has been actively promoting in recent years.”

He added, “Safety is of Malaysia Airlines’ utmost priority. The EBT is just one of our efforts to continuously enhance safety and we will be among the first in the region to invest and embark on this implementation of Baseline EBT.”

Peak Pacific Founder & CEO, Kishor Mistry, said, “We are very pleased to add Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) to the growing list of customers taking up our EBT solution, which includes not only EBT, but also the Competency Based Training framework, hence providing customers with a total solution. The MAB team has put great emphasis on getting it right, by starting with an EBT Change Managed Program for Trainers, Admin and Management, plus a Train-the-Trainer program to ensure there is quality and consistency throughout the team and the project long term. The MAB project will include Digital (encrypted) Certificates to satisfy the Department of Civil Aviation of Malaysia (DCAM) requirements; hence making the transition from a paper/form based solution to a truly digital one.”

Mr Mistry added, “The solution will include integration with existing MAB systems such as their HRMS, LMS and Rostering/Scheduling systems, to create a totally integrated technology driven training environment. This agreement is a significant milestone for Peak Pacific, and for MAB to become the leading legacy carrier in Malaysia to take up EBT using our “Clear” Suite. We look forward to working with Malaysian Airlines Berhad and the Department of Civil Aviation of Malaysia to implement a world class solution.”
