This course is based around the ICAO SMS Framework, EASA OR.GEN.200 Rules and the UK CAA SMS Guidance Material. Delegates will benefit from the experiences and observations from current UK CAA oversight activities. This course is delivered by subject matter experts from the UK CAA and makes use of effective presentations and syndicate exercises using case study examples from aviation organisations. Delegates will be provided with the latest thinking on SMS, examples of best practice and the latest regulatory changes and policies towards SMS.
