Aviation Safety Solutions CEO Amanda Ferraro.

The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and Aviation Safety Solutions, have launched an online educational offering, the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Protocol Standardisation (IPS) course. The new programme is designed for business aircraft operators, safety managers and auditors seeking knowledge of the IS-BAO protocols via a user-friendly, self-paced format.

IS-BAO programme director Andrew Karas says: “We are excited to launch this course and extend our gratitude to Amanda Ferraro, CEO of Aviation Safety Solutions (AVSS), and her team for working with us to design this curriculum. This co-developed course was formed out of a mutual passion for delivering best practices for business aviation operations, including education and training programmes for operators and auditors. We look forward to sharing this new tool with the industry.”

The IS-BAO Protocol Standardisation (IPS) course is accessible through the IS-BAO training and resources web page or by going directly to the Aviation Safety Solutions IPS course registration. It takes a step-by-step intuitive approach to review each IS-BAO section, accompanied by explanations for every protocol requirement. The course takes seven hours to complete, and users can stop and start as needed; they also can review the content for up to 12 months from the first log in.

The IPS course, an advanced educational channel for IS-BAO participants, is now accessible to all business aviation professionals. The course is expected to be integrated with the programme's workshops in the near future, further enhancing its offerings.

Aviation Safety Solutions is very proud to partner with the world-renowned International Business Aviation Council to offer this unique and innovative training opportunity for individuals who wish to achieve IS-BAO certification to become familiar with the best practices to achieve the highest levels of safety and professionalism, as well as for those who wish to improve and strengthen their knowledge of IS-BAO protocols to raise their safety knowledge bar,” says Ferraro. “We are extremely grateful for this opportunity to join forces to advance aviation safety across the globe.”
