#Aviation Training in #Kigali by the highly respected #AviAssist Safety Promotion Centre

Aviation Incident Investigation Course
13th to 17th of May 2019, Kigali, Rwanda

Dear aviation professional & safety champion,

Audit findings indicate that many States have not been able to implement an effective accident and incident investigation system. The findings have been associated, in general, with a lack of resources, both human and financial.
Always wanted to get trained as an incident investigator? We bring this qualification close to you.
Popular TV programs give a very one-sided look at investigations and focus on major crashes. But the majority of investigations in our industry look at incidents and safety occurences.

Effective safety management (SMS & SSP) largely depend on the quality of the investigation of reported incidents and safety issues.

This course is suitable for professionals from Civil Aviation Authorities, airports, Air Navigation Service Providers, Accident Investigation Authorities and airlines (operators).

Your instructor Jan Smeitink is one of the lead investigators of the Aircraft Accident & Incident Division of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Rwanda.
