IBAC accepts online training module for safety managers for accreditation

International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has announced it has accepted for accreditation the Advanced Aircrew Academy´s new Safety Management Systems (SMS) online training module safety managers for accreditation, the company said.

Advanced Aircrew Academy´s SMS for Safety Managers eLearning module is organized around the four core elements of SMS: Policy, Risk Management, Assurance, and Promotion. The SMS module provides web links, background, references, and example scenarios of an effective SMS in action.

The International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) and International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Audit Procedures Manuals require that IS‑BAO/IS‑BAH auditors complete an SMS training course acceptable to IBAC. Advanced Aircrew Academy´s eLearning module has been accredited by IBAC to meet that training requirement.

Advanced Aircrew Academy enables flight operations to fulfill their flight department training needs in the most efficient and affordable way–in any location at any time. We do this by providing high quality professional pilot, flight attendant, flight coordinator, maintenance, and line service modules delivered via the web using a world-class online aviation training system.

IBAC is a non-profit international trade association with permanent observer status at the International Civil Aviation Organization, the UN Specialized Agency for aviation matters, in Montreal, Canada.

IS-BAOTM is a global, voluntary code of best practice with a safety management system (SMS) at its core. Tailored specifically for business aircraft operators, it is built upon and consistent with the standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
