ABES is only one element of refresher training.
Refresher training includes training in standard practices (including phraseology), human factors and abnormal and
These three elements make up refresher training and all three elements are required to be undertaken for the

document, which may be prior to the end of the CAA derogation period on the 31st December 2016.
