    Course overview

    This course is for people working in the manufacturing, operating and maintenance sectors of the aviation industry, both civilian and military, plus the regulatory authorities. The objective is to maintain an acceptable level of safety with increased passengers and greater commercial competition. Safety encompasses ground and flight staff of airlines and airports plus other aircraft operators, maintenance organisations, aircraft design and manufacturing. A typical student will have a number of years’ experience in their particular field of aeronautical expertise.

    Graduates have moved to positions of responsibility in safety management within civil aviation authorities, airlines, other aircraft operators and defence forces throughout the world.
