Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 France Toulouse

The ENAC Advanced Master Safety Management System in Aviation is designed for current or future SMS managers in charge of the development, deployment, or improvement of SMS in organisations that must comply with ICAO safety requirements. [+]

Content and Objectives ENAC Advanced Master SMS in Aviation is designed to train SMS managers who will lead the structural and administrative changes within their organisation, moving it from reactive thinking to predictive thinking. In an effort to reach the next level of aviation safety, international civil aviation authorities (ICAO, EASA, FAA) as well as IATA require organisations and institutions alike to implement a Safety Management System (SMS) for the management of safety risks. The corresponding fields include: aircrafts design and production, air operations, aeronautical maintenance, air traffic services, airport and training organisations. SMS represents the next step in the evolution of safety processes in the aviation industry worldwide, at the organisational level. SMS complements the requirements and regulations in human or technical safety already implemented during the past decades. SMS is the formal systemic and pro-active approach to anticipating and managing safety risk, as well as to initiating and achieving the necessary transformation of organisational structures, accountabilities, policies, procedures, standard practices and regulations. SMS is a structured process that requires organisations to apprehend possible safety issues with the same level of priority that other core business topics are managed, and to continuously analyze them, in conjunction with state institutions within their State Safety Program (SSP), as well as with their industry counterparts. The objective is to provide future SMS managers with the fundamentals of how to systematically monitor and improve aviation safety using the Safety Management System described in ANNEX 19 of the ICAO Convention. This program enables applicants... [-]
