It is now globally accepted that the external aviation safety audit is a critical component of an organisation’s Quality and Safety Management responsibility. As part of the continuous improvement cycle, audits are an essential instrument to identify and implement potential improvements.
It is also common knowledge that ISO 9001:2015 is the global leader in quality control methodology that is best suited to establishing an effective Quality Management System; therefore, it stands to reason that the auditing company (the Auditor) should be ISO 9001:2015 Certified and all auditors should be external aviation auditor certified under an approved ISO 9001:2015 Certifying authority.
UKCAA CAP 437 HELIDECK CERTIFICATION
Aeronautical Enterprises and Flight Safety Africa provide detailed Helideck Inspection Awareness Training (HIAT) courses that are based on UKCAA CAP 437 and in addition will include information gleaned from local operations.
The Helideck Inspector Awareness Training (HIAT) course has now been extended to include onshore HLS (Helicopter Landing Site) design and an in-depth profile on HLSO (Helicopter Landing Site Officer) training, or can be conducted as only the standalone HIAT course.
A 'Certificate of Participation' is issued to all participants.
*Accident/Incident Investigation Analysis (AIIA) Courses can be held in conjuction if required. All courses are subject to minimum numbers and date changes.
The Flight Safety Group is conscious of the fact that both time and cost are of great importance to the Oil and Gas companies and have therefore designed our OPITO equivalent courses to be both cost and time effective, without forfeiting any of the requirements which ensure the crew members get the maximum benefit from the training.
In addition, to facilitate the offshore training even further, the Flight Safety Group has now converted all applicable offshore training courses to the online platform.
This online HLO accereditation fulfills the OPITO requirement but is applicable for current offshore personnel who hold or have held an HLO Certificate. In other words, personnel who currently fulfill the requirements for the practical OPITO experience requirements.
Personnel who lack the experience or require additional or refresher practical training will be required to complete a separate module - the "HLO Practical Module".
