About

Implementation of SMS became mandatory for airline international operations in November 2006. Since then, the airline community has developed considerable experience and acquired important “lessons learned” regarding both SMS implementation and operation. However, most training currently available for the airline community still relies on contents developed to satisfy early SMS implementation requirements. This course reflects progress on SMS practical knowledge as well as conceptual thinking since 2006, both resulting from shared industry experiences, including latest requirements regarding safety culture and the enhanced protection for safety data and safety information included in the second edition of Annex 19.
