About the Course:
The objective of this training is to provide SMS Air Operator and MRO service provider personnel with an overview of the most recent changes in International Civil Organization Organisation (ICAO) Safety Management Annex 19 fundamentals, standards, and recommended practices (SARPs), and ICAO Doc 9859 (4th Ed) Safety Management Manual. The attendees will review SMS guidance for the development, implementation, maintenance, and safety assurance auditing.

Safety management systems entail a set of business processes and management tools to examine data from everyday operations, isolate trends that could be precursors to incidents or accidents and develop appropriate risk mitigation strategies.

This refresher training helps Air Operators and Maintenance Organisations approved by Civil Aviation Authorities demonstrate compliance with ICAO SMS Standards and Recommended Practices by enabling the participants with the most recent and revised ICAO information.

Who Should Attend?
Air Operators and Maintenance Organisations training managers, quality assurance managers, and company personnel involved with SMS training and knowledge sharing. This course is also beneficial to accountable managers & professionals working in the aviation industry.

  • Review of ICAO SMS State Safety Plan and Acceptable Levels of Safety
  • Discussion of SMS Auditing Techniques, Tools, Templates
  • Safety Performance Monitoring and Measurement
