Introduction to Safety Management System (SMS) – a new eLearning training course out soon

All organisations that operate in an airport airside environment should have Safety Management System to ensure that everything reasonable practicable has been done to protect the health and safety of employees and others.

Training is a must to understand fundaments of SMS
You must first instruct employees to the fundaments of Safety Management System for “What, Why, How, Who and When” and then how your organisation can report and process safety related occurrences.

Online training courses and real-time reporting system will help your organisation to maintain the integrity of safe operations.

When the system is properly practiced it is an investment that will improve an organisation performance, cost reduction and maintain the integrity of the operation

Have your staff completed Safety and Security Training? What about your subcontractors?

International and national regulations lay down rules and standards on aviation safety and security to protect the health of citizens, goods and property from unlawful interference and accidents.

Aviation Safety and Security standards set responsibilities to airlines, airport operators and ground handling agents to implement Safety & Security Programs.

In order to ensure implementation of these programs operational staff need to be motivated and empowered to protect their customers, company and themself.

Training is a must in aviation!
Training has very important role when encouraging staff to open reporting culture which is crucial part of safety and security development.

We at Airport College are actively supporting all parties by providing training solutions for safer aviation.

If you want to know more how we have helped our clients, please drop us a mail.

Best regards,



P.S. Please remember that a well-trained employee who knows safety and security practices performs better!

How to use eLearning as part of employees onboarding?

Regardless of your business you need to get new employees aboard smoothly but what is the efficient way? Let’s take a look at one example from Airport Operations.


New airport ground handling personnel need to study a number of safety and security related topics on top of companys welcome presentations and Q&A’s before they start their work.

A strong argument can be made to suggest that companies use online eLearning as part of initial training. eLearning can take place in the classroom which can help instructor to familiarise students for both the topics and at the same time to eLearning.

Self study courses can be used to deliver precisely the needed topics and information to all students. This enables teacher to get the whole class at the same basic level of knowledge before he or she will start his/her teaching.

We at AirportCollege.com have number of ready to use e-learning products available to cover security, safety and service related training needs with standardised content.

If you don’t use e-learning yet, you can start to improve your company’s productivity today.
