Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Course

2 Days

RCA is a critical element of the organization's safety management process. RCA enables a trained investigator to determine the root cause(s) of safety occurrences. Once root cause(s) are identified, corrective actions can then be implemented, preventing similar occurrences from happening again in the future. Since there are a number of investigative methods for conducting RCAs, this course presents a variety of options for conducting RCAs, with a focus on the most common methods used in the aviation industry.
