EAAP recognised course: Understanding SMS - starting 18 Oct. 2021

18 October 2021

This 3-week, part-time online course will prepare managers, entrepreneurs, aviation psychologists, and organizational members from the sharp end in aviation and other high risk / high consequence areas to understand what the intent of SMS is, why failures happen, and ideally how to avoid them. The course concentrates on the theoretic underpinnings and the scientific discourse behind Safety Management Systems (SMS), and the policies governing it. Participants should expect a workload of 6 hours per week.

This is an asynchronous online, instructor-facilitated course. Individual live-interaction with instructors via Zoom is available during scheduled office hours and upon student request. The course must be completed by its scheduled end date. Digital certificates are available upon successful completion of the required discussion posts, in which students will demonstrate the learned concepts, methods, and techniques.
