In the SMS Principles and Application course, you learnt how to implement and assess a basic safety management system (SMS).

The course draws on the ICAO SMS Framework, EASA OR.GEN.200 Rules and UK CAA Safety Management System (SMS) Guidance Material, along with case studies, experiences and observations from the UK CAA's current oversight activities. You will benefit from the latest thinking on Safety Management Systems (SMS), examples of best practice and the latest regulatory changes and policies towards SMS, delivered by UK CAA experts.

The course is highly interactive, using group activities and discussion to develop your skills.
