EASA Part-145 Regulation + SMS Implementation

This course is intended for Aviation professionals working in EASA Part-145 approved organizations especially personnel responsible for designing and implementing SMS in their organizations. 

What the Course is About

This hybrid course covers EASA Part-145 regulation and its Safety Management System (SMS) implementation in detail and is composed of 5 modules:

Module 1: The Basic Regulation is an asynchronous module giving a good overview on how EASA was set-up and what is its intended purpose and objectives.

Module 2: The EASA Rulemaking Process is an asynchronous module intended to support the candidate consolidating further the knowledge gained in the first module. EASA plays a vital role in the creation and implementation of aviation rules and regulations and the intent of this module is to give a good understanding of the processes involved behind rule making. 

Module 3: Safety Management Systems (SMS) Fundamentals is an asynchronous module intended to provide a basic understanding of Safety management systems as developed initially by ICAO.

Module 4: Part 145 Regulation Review is a synchronous module covering EU Regulation 1321/2014 Annex II (Part-145), where the participants have the ability to interact with the instructor online, covering all the requirements to be met by EASA approved Part-145 Organisations.

Note: If you are only interested in the SMS implementation for EASA Part-145 organisations, Raven offers the “EASA Part145 SMS Implementation” hybrid course as an alternative.

Module 5: Part 145 SMS Implementation. Similar to Module 4, this module is a synchronous module where the participants have the ability to interact with the instructor online. This module builds on Module 3 and discusses all the elements and requirements to be implemented in a Part 145 Safety Management System in relation to 145.A.200, 145.A.202, 145.A.205 and ICAO Annex 19 Appendix 2.

Following the completion of all the five modules, the course participants will gain an enhanced understanding of the EASA Part-145 requirements and a thorough understanding of all the requirements related to an SMS in a Part-145 organization. In addition, the course participants will gain knowledge and understanding on how to keep oneself updated with any amendments of the regulations that are published by EASA.
