Not as far as know. When I was a CAA my staff and myself (all ex-SAAF aircrew) used to do the role of Flight Validation Ofiicer. There is a FAA course for this and I tried for 3 years before I left to get us on the course without any support from management who did not see the need, just like they didn't see the need for RNAV, EGNOS, etc. The joys of dealing with someone with a small mind.
