Previously known as the Aviation Safety Officer course, this workshop is designed to teach you about the principles of aviation safety, and the importance of having an aviation safety programme.

No matter what type of aviation organisation you operate, you should have a safety programme.

By attending this course, you’ll gain the knowledge and tools to be able to effectively plan, structure, and run an aviation safety programme within your organisation.

You’ll receive comprehensive guidance material and access to all the latest CAA safety resources and support.
