LTT – Online examination goes live - Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Press release

Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT)

Online examination goes live

“Reducing costs and boosting quality”

Hamburg, 27 February 2013:

Lufthansa Technical Training has been cleared by the National Aviation Authority of Germany (LBA) to offer online exams for officially approved courses at the LTT training sites in Hamburg and Frankfurt.

Holger Beck, Chief Commercial Officer at LTT:

“We’re very happy about the successful introduction of electronically supported examination procedures. The new process is highly efficient, reduces the expense involved in setting up and post-processing the exam, largely eliminates human error and is at the same time extremely user-friendly. It’s a very good example of how modern media can be deployed to reduce costs, boost quality and promote acceptance.”

This project was characterized by a high degree of complexity, as the requirements on the execution of the exam and, in particular, its validation to the National Aviation Authority of Germany (LBA), are stringent. In this connection, issues like “systems failure during an exam” or “validation in the case of possible incorrect entries” had to be considered in comprehensive detail.

Having examined this concept and its technical implementation, the National Aviation Authority of Germany of Germany (LBA) had granted Lufthansa Technical Training clearance to conduct this form of exam.

The feedback from the first candidates was very positive. They assessed this form of exam as modern and professional. Singled out for particular praise were the improved presentation and legibility of the exam questions and the technical ease of use.
