the reasons for the actions of a particular person when looking at historical aircraft accidents (Hope, 2014). The cultural literacy PO will be demonstrated by the student ’s analysis and evaluation of sources relating to the aspect of cultural influence and maintenance errors in commercial aviation maintenance. Regarding maintenance errors, different cultures can include social, organizational, aviation, safety, religious, or ethnic cultures (ERAU, 2015, p. 19). The student will require an understanding of how maintenance organizations, leadership, management, and decision making are impacted by cultural influence. The student will utilize Marx ’s (1998) article “Learning from our Mistakes: A Review of Maintenance Error,” prepared through Galaxy Scientific Corporation for the FAA, and the “Human Factors in Aviation Maintenance and Inspection Research Program ,” prepared by the FAA’s Flight Standards Service in conjunction with the Office of Aviation Medicine (FAA, n.d.). Life Long Personal Growth “The student will show evidence of the skills needed to enrich the quality of life through activities which enhance and promote lifetime learning” (ERAU, 2015, pp. 20-21). The student understands the lifelong personal growth PO as the ability of compiling knowledge, skills and action, where individuals can benefit from education, training and professional development over time (ERAU, 2015). The lifelong personal growth PO will be demonstrated by analyzing and evaluating credible sources related to aviation human factors training programs, and safety initiatives. Sources evaluated will be specific to the mitigation of maintenance errors caused by human factors. The student will require an understanding of how training programs that incorporate elements of maintenance resource management (MRM) and safety management systems (SMS), would positively influence an aircraft maintenance organization’ s safety culture over time. The student will review the “Maintenan ce Resource Management Handbook by Sian et al. (n.d), published under the direction of the FAA’s Office of Aviation Medicine.
