Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today announced
that the Bell Helicopter Training Academy recently launched its first
on-line course for Customer Service Facilities (CSFs) that maintain the
Bell 412 product line.
The 412 – CSF Field Maintenance Refresher course is available
through Bell's Learning Management System (LMS) and is intended to
provide refresher training for Bell's CSF maintenance technicians. The
course offers the flexibility to be taken at any time and location
convenient for the technician. Since it is web-based it does not
require technicians to travel to the Bell Training Academy in order to
complete their refresher training requirements and earn their full Bell
Achievement Ranking System (BARS) training credit. BARS is an internal
ranking system developed by Bell to promote superior product support
and CFS continuous improvement.
Pat Crippen, marketing and sales manager at the academy said, "As we
continue to expand our curriculum, we are looking at ways to increase
the access to our courses. This 412 field maintenance refresher course
is a good example of that and we hope to provide more courses using
this method in the future."
