Safety Management Systems Training

 

TACG can help you implement your SMS...

 

 

SMS Pro can help you measure it!

 

     TACG provides training and consulting in Safety Management Systems (SMS) on a global basis. In the U.S., SMS is not currently mandatory for most operators, but this will soon change. We suggest being proactive and "staying ahead of the curve" by beginning your SMS implementation now, as SMS will be required by mandate in the very near future. For operators outside of the U.S., SMS may or may not be mandatory at this time, depending on your geographic location. Regardless, if your country is signatory to ICAO, your CAA will soon require you to have an SMS if you do not already have one. TACG works with operators on a worldwide basis to assist with their SMS implementation process.

    

     TACG has the experience and know-how to assist with your SMS implementation, whether your aviation organization is an airline, MRO, airport, or any other type of operator. We have partnered with SMS Pro, the leading SMS software provider, to offer you the most robust software solution available, to measure and monitor your SMS. We would be happy to set up an SMS Pro software demo for you to see for yourself why SMS Pro is the best software solution on the market!

Safety Management Systems Overview

Description

Lots of buzz going around lately about Safety Management Systems! Perhaps you've read up on SMS and still have many questions. You may know that SMS has, or will, become mandatory for virtually all aviation operators over the next few years. Our SMS Overview course is the perfect starting point to separate fact from fiction as you begin thinking about SMS implementation at your own organization. This course is jam-packed with information that you can use immediately to help you make informed decisions as you begin the SMS implementation process.

Who Should Attend

Safety/quality managers and middle management. This course is an excellent starting point for those people that are not that familiar with SMS, or are currently in the "investigative stage," for SMS implementation within their own company. This course is also ideal for any person interested in gaining knowledge of SMS concepts, principles, and philosophies.
