Safety Assessment of Aircraft Systems

About the course

This five-day residential course is designed and taught by highly experienced trainers and includes content from several guest speakers, strategically selected from a group of industry experts that have represented organisations such as Rolls Royce, Airbus, and EASA.

Content will be delivered via lectures, tutorials, collaborative group work, and masterclasses from a variety of experienced industry experts. Upon completion, you will receive:

  • a comprehensive set of Course Notes
  • a signed Certificate of Training
  • an invitation to the programme dinner, which will be held at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum in nearby London Colney.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills at Herts, which has firmly established roots in the aeronautical industry as the birthplace of the legendary ‘Comet’ aircraft, which was the world's first jet passenger aircraft. Herts is also the number one University in the East of England for Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering (2023 Complete University Guide).

Why this course?

In partnership with RGW Cherry and Associates, as well as other industry experts, this course is a must for professionals in settings where effective safety assessment of systems is a critical element of their remit.

While the course is based on the current civil aeroplane regulations contained in CS/FAR 25.1309, experience suggests that personnel from Military Aviation and other industries, where the safety of systems is crucial, will also find this course hugely beneficial.
