“We are very committed to strengthening our collaboration with Members of our TRAINAIR PLUS Programme, and to raising awareness on the latest safety provisions for both current and next generation aviation professionals.”

ENAC Director Houalla reinforced this sentiment, adding that “ENAC being an Aviation University, working under the auspices of the French Civil Aviation Directorate, one of our missions is to improve air transport safety worldwide. That is why we are very proud, through this training agreement, to work hand in hand with ICAO to fulfil this task.

This partnership will definitely help to develop safety dedicated aviation professionals worldwide as part of the NGAP programme in which ENAC is deeply involved.”The new SMS Master’s Degree, composed of 12 modules as well as an internship, covers all aspects of SMS concepts, processes, methods and operational management. It is specifically designed to address both executive as well as technical levels.The course modules will support a wide range of aviation stakeholders, including aircraft and airport operators, manufacturers, maintenance organizations, air navigation service providers, and training organizations.

The Master’s Programme will be delivered both at ENAC’s Toulouse location in France and globally via other TRAINAIR PLUS Members.
