The course provides instruction on current best-practices for systemic ATM safety investigation techniques, and the efficient use and synchronised interpretation of the SOAM guidelines. The course provides participants with the necessary references and a wide range of practical examples in the investigation of ATM safety occurrences.
The course is generic enough to be understandable and applicable across the ECAC region:
- whatever the institutional arrangements in place for the provision of ATM services;
- whatever the size of the “regulated” service provider organisations;
- whatever the cultural environment in which it is intended to be applied.
There is no preparatory work required to attend this course. However, if you have not already completed the Safety Management System in ATM (From Theory to Practice) [SAF-SMS] you may find it useful to register for it. It can be found in the Safety category of the Training Catalogue.
After completing the course, participants will appreciate the reason for conducting systemic safety occurrence investigations (including incidents and accidents) and be able to apply general investigation techniques. Participants will also be able to apply specific systemic investigation and analysis tools, including EUROCONTROL’s Systemic Occurrence Analysis Methodology (SOAM).
The course is designed for ATM service provider personnel with sound operational knowledge, who have been or are to be appointed as ATM occurrence investigators.
All candidates will receive a certificate of attendance.
