A background in an aviation environment is an advantage although not essential.
Learning Objective: 
To unable delegates to fully understand the ICAO SMS Requirement and the intent behind them.
The training will commence at 09.00 and finish at 17.00
Training Syllabus: 

With SMS we have a set of regulations, which allow Industry to establish best-practice that fits different cultures and place the main emphasis and duty on improving safety performance. This requires a real “team effort” as regulator and airline are all part of one large system. Working as a team it will be possible to improve an already highly impressive safety record, and allow organisations to conduct more of their own oversight and assurance.

It will also be of benefit as a refresher to any Safety Management Stake Holders, Quality Audit Staff and persons who normally work within the Safety Management System in a maintenance or operational context.
