(VAT exclusive price)

Course duration: 2 Days     Course dates: 23 - 24 September  2019     Course location: Gatwick, UK


This course provides the fundamentals of how to develop and maintain an effective Security Management System developed by the UK CAA.


A Security Management System will allow:


  • security risks to be managed at the right level, overseen by company boards;
  • activities to be measured to provide management information on security performance;
  • people in the organisation who are accountable for maintaining rigorous security standards, using the management information; and
  • a culture that promotes high security standards throughout the company.


A SeMS achieves this by providing an organised, systematic approach to managing security which embeds security management into the day-to-day activities of the organisation and its people.

  • Civil Aviation Authorities and appropriate Government bodies
