NEW SMS eLearning Course
January 6, 2011

IBAC and FlightSafety International have co-developed a new Safety Management Systems (SMS) online course entitled Safety Management Systems for Aviation Professionals. It is designed for all professionals working within flight department operations, including pilots, maintenance personnel, flight attendants, dispatchers, line personnel and administrative staff.  The course takes a scenario-based approach to learning, using relatable, even humorous, real-life situations to introduce the learner to the fundamental concepts of Safety Management Systems and focuses on fostering a proactive, positive safety culture.  It is also ideal refresher training for those who have previously taken an SMS course.  The SMS for Aviation Professional course is more condensed than the in-depth SMS for Managers course, and is intended for personnel that do not have substantive SMS implementation responsibilities.  See http://www.ibac.org/safety-management/sms-elearning-course for information on the course and click here for additional information and to purchase the course.
