FAA Accepts JDA SUPS eLearning Course for IA Training Requirement

May 17, 2017
The course, “Aviation Industry eLearning Suspected Unapproved Parts,” meets FAA’s requirements of 14 CFR Part 65, § 65.93(a)(4) for IA renewal and is receiving rave reviews from early enrollees.

BETHESDA, MD – JDA announced today the release of a new eLearning course it described as the easiest and most cost-effective way to obtain SUPS initial and refresher Inspection Authorization (IA) training. The eLearning course was recently approved as an Inspection Authorization (IA) Course by The Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team (FAAST).

"This course solves the number one problem associated with classroom training, cost and time,” said Joe Del Balzo, JDA President. “Our new e-Learning course provides the same content, at half the cost in half the time as JDA’s SUPs two-day classroom course for IA Renewal that previously was accepted by FAA."

Jointly developed by JDA and its eLearning Partner Butterfly Training, the course, “Aviation Industry eLearning Suspected Unapproved Parts,” meets FAA’s requirements of 14 CFR Part 65, § 65.93(a)(4) for IA renewal and is receiving rave reviews from early enrollees.

"This is a great course! After 16 years of being a receiving inspector I still learned quite a bit,” said Mark Giovanardi, Director of Materials for Aero-Flite, the Spokane-based aerial firefighting company. Giovanardi was given an opportunity to take the course soon after it received FAA approval in April. “I plan to enroll members of my team in the program," he said.

The new course provides training segments on:

* Receiving Inspection

* Part Substantiation

* Parts Involved in Accidents

* Part Marking Requirements

* Part Fabrication

* Use of Military Parts

* Civil and Legal Impact of Using SUP Parts

* Reporting a SUP

* Internal SUP Programs

A Course Certificate with an FAA Acceptance Number is provided after successful completion of the eLearning program.
