Safety Manager Certificate

Improving the safety of business aircraft operations has always been one of our industry’s top priorities. New in 2022, NBAA in partnership with the NBAA Safety Committee, Convergent Performance, Advanced Aircrew Academy, and Fireside Partners has developed an assessment-based certificate program that will provide participants introductory-level training on safety in business aviation operations. The program includes testing in six key areas of safety management:

  • Safety Leadership
  • Safety Policy
  • Safety Risk Management
  • Safety Assurance
  • Safety Promotion
  • Emergency Response

Once the course is complete, participants will be able to effectively manage a business aviation organization’s safety management efforts, including its safety management system (SMS). Successful program participants also receive a certificate and a digital badge to validate their knowledge with their peers. This program is perfect for flight department personnel who have been assigned safety management responsibilities, or professionals looking to work in business aviation operations.

Course Details

The course will officially kick off on June 13th.  On Friday June 10th, registered attendees will receive an invitation to the kick-off call where we will explain the system and the plan for the 8 week certificate.  Attendees that register early will not have access to the course content until June 13th.  Please email the NBAA team if you have any questions:

After registering for the course, attendees can expect a confirmation email from the NBAA team within 24 hours on business days.
