The CRM update, which constitutes a major part in risk management system required by ICAO, includes the topics of nutrition and fatigue covering the  causes , symptoms and the tolerance factor. 

Such enhancement of the training seems very valuable to the trainees and resulted in improving the safety awareness and culture of the active crew during flight.
