Great to receive the video shown above from Changi Airport Group AES. A fantastic achievement by all and a great testament to the simplicity of the Redkite Competence Management System and its ability to provide robust digital records eliminating tedious paperwork.

June 2020 - Changi Airport Group update

It is less than twelve months since Changi Airport Group went operational with the Redkite Competence Management System which is now used on a daily basis throughout CAG AES - 500+ personnel at 8 aerodromes throughout Singapore: four military, one helicopter base, a specialist Sea Rescue Base and two civilian airfields, including the world leading Changi International Airport.

Using Redkite, CAG AES has moved from a time consuming paper based training system to a fully automated, paperless, electronic maintenance of competence system using a competence framework, developed with the help of my good friend Peter NcMahon.

Redkite has empowered CAG AES to create customised role profiles to meet the varied competence requirements specific to the many roles at their mix of aerodromes and Redkite manages this complex array of refresher training and workplace assessment reminders to ensure competence is maintained.



Redkite also manages the  delivery of over 120 focussed e-learning packages to match profiles of groups and individuals throughout CAG AES.

Redkite's inherent flexibility has also enabled CAG AES to design and deliver their own assessment and learning material.

 

A fantastic achievement... well done the team at CAG AES.

May 2020 - Capita Defense Fire and Rescue Project

The month of May has seen Redkite Systems working to put in place the Redkite E-Log which is the latest piece in the integrated fire service management system supplied by Redkite for the Capita Defense Fire and Rescue Project. Roll out of the Redkite E-Log will commence to over 55 MOD sites throughout the UK and overseas in June and will integrate with, and complement, the newly introduced Redkite Asset Management System and the Redkite Competence Management System which are now already fully operational throughout the service. As is normal with Redkite projects, all project timelines have been met and it has been a priviledge to have been involved in this very successful project. My thanks to all those involved at Capita and at Redkite Systems.


 

The next stage, hopefully, will be to introduce more Redkite modules to further enhance the system to the benefit of all.

 

Plenty of other interesting work undertaken during May; discussing new projects in the UK and overseas as well as developing new and enhanced modules, functions and features to continue to improve our portfolio of products.

 

 



March 2020 - Redkite Systems are pleased to announce the extension of their provision to Changi Airport Group AES.

Redkite Systems are pleased to announce the extension of their provision to Changi Airport Group AES to include a new module to house a large number of compliance questionnaires, which they term as AES Ratings.

The ratings, which can follow a practical assessment, are undertaken annually to ensure operational readiness of AES personnel in key areas.

 

The questions are categorized for each fire station, rank and resources and are held in question banks, selected and delivered by Redkite Question Master (part of the Redkite Competence Management System) in a random order. Assessments are automatically marked and graded and a record of all attempts is made. E-records are made available for sighting and verification for the processing of their various allowances.

 

CAG AES report: "The online rating system fits seamlessly into our competence framework held in the Redkite CMS and successfully rolled-out to all aerodromes and Airbases within CAG AES in Singapore, including Changi International Airport. We now have a one-stop portal for all operational compliances (training and ratings system). This has removed plenty of unnecessary paper work for the more than 30 various ratings in place today.

The underlying competence framework and supporting training packages (complete with on-line assessments) which have been and are in the on-going process of being developed for Changi Airport Group by Peter McMahon, provide the flexibility to accommodate the differing needs of each airfield.

The training packages, which have been designed to be delivered and managed through the Redkite CMS, cover all aspects of Airport Emergency Response (ARFFS), including water rescue and allow training managers to select from a comprehensive menu of workplace assessment, training and assessment packages to ensure competence requirements match the needs of each specialised environment. With over 150 packages available, including scenarios, Learning Guides, e-learning material and on-line assessments, pre-mapped to internationally recognized competence frameworks, ICAO, CAP 699, NFPA, CAAS and more, this is the most comprehensive training package available for ARFFS.
