NATA and TSI Continue to Inspire Excellence in Safety Management with New Series

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) announces the launch of the 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 installment of the monthly webinars will take place on April 15, 2021, featuring Dr. Tony Kern who will cover “Learning Again for the First Time: The Gift of Lost Proficiency.” Attendees receive a digital certificate from the U.S. DOT/NATA, as well as .5 CEU toward Aviation Safety Officer qualification.

“As the industry moves toward safety management systems (SMS), NATA is pleased to partner with the DOT and TSI to provide access to experts, resources and training that assist our members with SMS program inception and then throughout its evolution,” says Michael France, NATA managing director of 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 & 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 Program

“NATA and TSI have a shared mission in advancing safety and empowering safe aviation businesses,” says 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 traveling public.”
