Aviation Safety Management System
This course is designed for all flying training organisations. We have developed it to promote a safety culture, guide the safety audit process and to ensure that safety issues are given priority than cost saving. The Malawi Civil Aviation Authority (the Directorate of Civil Aviation) requires that safety management systems (SMS) are implemented and that they conform to standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). This SMS course is an in-house training programme and is thus only available to Eastrise Aviation staff, students and a few privileged individuals.
All participants will be required to attend at least 95 percent of the lessons and pass an exam which will be administered online on our exam delivery platform. The passmark is 75 percent. The student will also be required to submit a short research project report in the form of an essay.
