Fuel Tank Safety is critical, particularly for large and complex aircraft, and is recognized throughout the industry as vital for both the safety of the aircraft as well as for maintenance personnel on the ground.

Two primary topics are included: First, as evidenced by the TWA Flight 800 explosion of 1996, is the critical importance of proper electrical wiring techniques nearby or within fuel tanks. Second are the physical hazards to personnel when tasked to perform maintenance inside of large tanks.

This course presents each of these topics at the required familiarization levels for maintenance personnel including the extensive use of graphics, animations, and audio narration built into multiple short 1-2 minute segments.

The specific goals of the course are to:
  • Become familiar with the basic and practical elements of fuel tank safety issues, to learn typical terms, theoretical fundamentals and specific examples to increase fuel tank safety.
  • Learn the capacity to combine and apply the separate elements of knowledge to guarantee efficiency and safety through human performance in the day-to-day work.
  • Ensure a long-term awareness about fuel tank safety deficiencies causing tank explosions and major aircraft incidents and accidents.

This course presents each of these topics at the required levels for maintenance personnel. It's format is a narrated powerpoint presentation with animation, video and text divided into 1-2 minute segments. A chapter quiz following each section and a final exam concludes the course. Upon your successful completion a certificate with your name will be provided.

On average, the course duration is 8 hours, however, this will vary based on your own study habits. From the time you begin, you will have 1 year to complete the course.
