The Computer Based Training (CBT) Portion of this course can be accessed with an internet connection, anywhere, at any time.

Knowledge Training Format - Computer Based Training (CBT)
Because the new GRF subject matter is significantly more complex than the pre-GRF Canadian reporting protocols, training in the new GRF protocols is more easily accommodated in CBT learning format. Course participants can work through the multiple modules at their own pace, measure their progress with Progression Tests for each module and take breaks when they need to.
A comprehensive Course Companion Handout provides the foundational reference material and opportunities to take notes.

The CBT knowledge portion contains abundant ‘scenario’ material responding to most of the common ‘what if’ questions not addressed in the regulatory or advisory material and passing the Final Knowledge Test ensures that the CP is well armed to tackle the challenges of ‘real-world reporting in ‘snow-fighting’ conditions.

Practical Test
In addition to the CBT knowledge portion of the course there will be a requirement for review and testing of practical skills associated with operational friction testing.
Completing the practical ‘Field Test’ (in-vehicle field work) is required for certification. After adequate time to confirm familiarity with airport equipment such as the inspection vehicle and decelerometer, the practical test will be administered in accordance with procedures and a checklist provided by TTS.

During the training period the course participant can receive mentoring from knowledgeable and experienced staff at the airport and will be able to access frequent live, online mentoring sessions provided by TTS and hosted by IAAE-Canada.

Once all steps are successfully completed a Certificate of Qualification will be issued attesting to course completion and stating compliance with Aeronautics Act requirements.

The Canadian version of GRF is very complex compared with pre-GRF aircraft movement surface condition reporting protocols. There are different requirements for different runway configurations, and Canadian GRF overlays the FAA TALPA/ARC reporting protocols on current Canadian pre-GRF reporting requirements. Canadian GRF rules are unique and differ significantly from those of other jurisdictions.

Training Requirement
As per the 15th May 2020 amendments to the Aeronautics Act, all runway inspectors (RIs) will have to be trained and certified to file AMSCRs (NOTAMJs / RCRNOTAMs). The new AMSCR-GRF Course Package provides training and certification based on safe and best practice and the requirements of the Aeronautics Act and current Advisory Circulars (ACs) including AC 300-019.
This course has been designed and produced over twenty months to provide experienced and novice CPs alike gain and demonstrate the knowledge they need to competently perform Runway Inspector (RI) and to demonstrate their competence, both in the field and through federal government certification.

Course Scope
The course is comprehensive and covers all of the subjects addressed in the previous WAMSCR course plus the year-round inspection and reporting requirements for certified airports of all sizes. This training course also fulfills the requirements of non-certified aerodromes wishing to provide the same condition reporting services.
Course subjects include:
• Inspection, assessment and reporting of conditions for all aircraft movement surfaces (AMS)
o Runways by thirds
o Runway overall conditions (non-thirds reporting)
o Paved and un-paved surfaces
• Operational friction measurement and reporting
o By runway third
o For entire runway length (CRFI)

Airport/Aerodrome Support
A detailed Administration Guide is available for managers and training coordinators that describes how the CP progresses through the learning and testing material and the support roles played by airport staff, TTS and IAAE-Canada.
