In-person Training (Newsletter) (1200 × 386 px) (2).png

As a safety leader you are always looking for the best way to be effective and maintain an SMS to have the greatest impact on mitigating risk in your organization.

The first 2-1/2 days is designed to review and convert theory into practical applications. Other courses offer an overview of SMS structure and theory but little in the way of “how to.” You’ll work through these sessions with tools you can use to implement and maintain an effective SMS in your workplace. The 16 modules will guide you through setting and updating policy, objectives, roles, reporting, monitoring, measuring, and communication. The goal is provide you with a plan to build a healthy and robust safety culture for your organization.   

The last half of the third day will be an optional time for those that may be susceptible to 14 CFR 5 based on the recent NPRM. We are opening up Thursday afternoon to local 135 operators who would be interested in learning more about the differences of Part 5 from industry standards (e.g., IS-BAO, ACSF, etc.) and what the FAA is expecting.
