NATA teams with US DOT on virtual programmes
The Inspire Series complements the in-person TSI/NATA Air Transport Safety Management Certification course by providing a conduit to continue safety management conversations with world class subject matter experts.

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and the US Department of Transportation's Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) have launched a virtual safety management ‘Inspire Series’. The Inspire Series complements the in-person TSI/NATA Air Transport Safety Management Certification (ATSM) course by providing a conduit to continue important safety management conversations with world class subject matter experts.

The first instalment of these monthly webinars will take place on 15 April, featuring Dr. Tony Kern who will cover ‘Learning Again for the First Time: The Gift of Lost Proficiency’. Attendees will receive a digital certificate from the US DOT/NATA, as well as .5 CEU towards aviation safety officer qualification.

“As the industry moves toward safety management systems, NATA is pleased to partner with the DOT and TSI to provide access to experts, resources and training that assist our members with SMS programme inception and then throughout its evolution,” states Michael France, NATA MD for safety and training. “We are thrilled by the excellent feedback on the value of the ATSM to our members, as well as the opportunity to build on that success with this virtual opportunity.”

Upcoming topics include: creating safety leaders from the frontline team; understanding and controlling risk using the Bowtie Methodology; perspectives from the FAA SMS office; managing safety performance using the Bowtie Methodology; the fastest way to crash a safety programme.

“NATA and TSI have a shared mission in advancing safety and empowering safe aviation businesses,” states Roger Hood, TSI senior air safety investigator and training manager. “Any opportunity to foster ongoing conversations about risk management, safety improvement and positive safety culture represents a win for the industry and the travelling public.”
