Safety Management Systems (SMS)
The SMS eLearning module is designed as an introduction to and overview of the SMS concept and how an SMS can enhance safety in a flight operation. The module is organized around the four core elements of the SMS: Policy, Risk Management, Assurance, and Promotion. The SMS module provides web links, background, references, and examples. This training is appropriate for all flight operations personnel, not just aircrews. The SMS module can be customized to your organization and SMS.
Versions of the SMS module for Safety Managers, Pilots, Flight Attendants, Schedulers/Dispatchers, Line Service, and Admin are available.
The SMS module can be used for one hour of credit towards IA Renewal. FAA Course Acceptance Number: C-IND-IM-160330-K-006-002.
The NBAA Management Guide (section 2.4) recommends advanced flight crew training above and beyond the regulatory requirements of the FAA as a best practice. That recommendation specifically cites Safety Management System training. This training module satisfies that NBAA recommendation.
The SMS for Safety Managers module has been accepted by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) to meet the IS-BAO/IS-BAH auditor training requirements for "completion of an SMS training course" as defined in the appendix to the Audit Procedures Manual.
