SMS from the Top Down

Many aviation operations are already far along with establishing a formal safety management system (SMS) — they just don’t realize it. Most are aware of personal safety issues in the workplace. However, aviation professionals must also have the tools to recognize situations that would elevate risk as well as the ability to implement controls to effectively mitigate those risks. Learn to foster a positive safety culture for future success.

Aeronautical Decision-Making: Is My Brain Trying to Kill Me?

For a skill that is so pivotal to one’s survival, it is ironic that we often leave the development of aeronautical decision-making to chance. The axiom “As you gain more experience, you will make better decisions” is clearly outdated. What are you doing to change this?

This course will review the tenets of aeronautical decision-making and explore how it is evolving. In-depth case studies of accidents will help students understand how decision-making occurs in dynamic situations. Students will also develop the building blocks for threat and error management skills.
