Employees, as well as company management, must buy into the program which means understanding concepts, the benefits, and implementation. ATC Vantage offers training in SMS principles, hazard identification, risk analysis and the development of a Safety Management Manual.

This is the MITRE/FAA developed SMS 1-Day Overview class with twice the class time and a workshop approach! ATC Vantage is one of only a few companies licensed to teach the MITRE SMS Overview course.   This course was developed in accordance with ICAO standards and FAA Recommendations and Requirements (AC120-92B) and is continually revised to ensure the most current information is presented.  MITRE SMS courseware has been taught to students from over 51 countries making it internationally accepted and desired.

SMS Manual Development Workshop
Prerequisite: ATCV SMS training or MITRE SMS certificate.  ATCV will work with each student to develop and customize a SMS manual that fits your organization. SMS requires documented procedures and programs. These programs ensure regulatory compliance and maximum standardization, efficiency, and productivity.  This is achieved in part through an SMS Manual that documents the policies, procedures and responsibilities.  Laptops are required.


About MITRE (SMS courseware developer)
MITRE Aviation Institute
ATC Vantage has been trained and audited by MITRE MAI (MITRE Aviation Institue) which is part of MITRE CAASD (Center for Advanced Aviation Systems Development) to teach the MITRE SMS Courseware.

NOTE: FAA names MITRE as a resource in the SMS "Read-Me-First" Document" Reference Link - #9) MITRE Center for the Advanced Aviation System Development is a non-profit research organization used by the USA Government (IRS, Dept. of Defense, FAA, etc...)  for a variety of projects.

In July 1958, the U.S. Congress chartered The MITRE Corporation as a private, not-for-profit corporation to provide engineering and technical guidance for the federal government.  (MITRE assists the FAA, TSA, NASA, the FCC, IRS, the Dept. of Defense, etc...) MITRE also performs work for international clients and conducts collaborative research with industry.

MITRE's role was enhanced in 1990 when the FAA created an FFRDC (Federally Funded Research and Development Center) CAASD  (Center for Advanced Aviation System Development), and selected MITRE to operate it.  Since then, MITRE has helped the FAA address the nation’s most critical aviation issues. Currently MITRE CAASD is assisting the FAA to develop NextGen.

In 2007, FAA selected MITRE to develop & maintain ASIAS system. MITRE assists in fusing confidential data with FAA, industry and other gov't data sources to allow analysts to further understand the content of safety reports. Air carriers remove aircrew & company identifying informationbefore submitting data. CAASD uses & is improving integration of ASAP reports & FOQA data for ASIAS. Ultimately, FAA intends for ASIAS to be used as a predictive tool that can identify risks before incidents or accidents occur.
