The Professional Programs Office of the College of Aviation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University will host three five-day classroom courses in May at the university’s Daytona Beach campus that will cover the latest topics in safety, security, human factors, and accident investigation.
Participants may elect to take a course independently or complete all three courses to receive a Certificate of Management in Aviation Safety. Participants will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for each course successfully completed.
The courses include:
- OSHA and Aviation Ground Safety for Managers, May 3-7: This course is designed to provide the participant with working knowledge of OSHA’s General Industry Safety and Health standards. In addition, participants will gain working knowledge of an aviation ground safety program, concentrating on how incidents/accidents can be prevented and the expense of avoidable incidents/accidents in terms of lives and dollars lost. Participants will become familiar with current OSHA violations and issues in aviation, acquire skills in the design and implementation of a ground safety program, and engage in hands-on exercises based on real-world experiences to aid them in the application of principles covered in the course. Participants will receive the OSHA 30-Hour General Industry Safety & Health training card shortly after completion of the course.
- Aviation Safety Management Systems, May 10-14: This course will provide an overview of the history, philosophy, and quality-management foundation of Safety Management Systems (SMS). The topics are designed to provide the participant with working knowledge of an aviation safety program and effective accident-prevention methods. The participant will review problems facing today’s aviation safety program manager and learn how to deal with basic safety and risk management concepts, as well as analyze program elements typically found in aviation safety programs. Participants will take part in classroom exercises based on real-world experiences to learn how to use additional tools and techniques to promote safety management in their organization. Course topics include SMS overview, building a safety program, safety analysis techniques, aviation security, and regulatory safety/health programs.
- Accident Investigation and Management, May 17-21: This course is designed to teach the participant the fundamentals required to conduct or manage an aircraft mishap/accident investigation. The participant will review the investigation sequence from the preplanning stage through the general survey and specific analysis of a mishap/accident, culminating with the determination of contributing factors and probable cause/s. Crash laboratory exercises and case examples will help the participant identify, collect, and analyze data in the process of determining probable cause/s. The participant will also discover solutions to problems faced during aircraft mishap/accident investigations.
