SMS for Investigators

SMS for Investigators Training.

Investigate the effectiveness of your SMS.

The SMS for Investigators Training was developed to provide participants with methods and tools to conduct a comprehensive investigation of Safety Management Systems (SMS).

A balanced curriculum of theoretical information and practical exercises will provide you with a profound understanding of the inspiring principles of a safety management system, as well as with tools to investigate the effectiveness of the same.

The material, which includes updates about the latest developments coming from scientific research conducted on safety, received a very positive review of the Saudi Arabia Aviation Investigation Bureau which hosted the first training session with the participation of representatives of Authorities, Airports, Operators, Maintenance Organizations and Ground Service Providers.
