To support the effective implementation of the ICAO USOAP Continuous Monitoring Approach (CMA), ICAO has developed computer-based training (CBT) to allow States to train their staff and become familiar with the CMA activities. This training will also effectively prepare technical experts/inspectors during preparation for ICVMs and Audits and for States' day-to-day safety oversight activities related to USOAP audit areas.
The objective of this e-course is to prepare qualified aviation experts from States or recognized international organizations to assist their States to prepare ICAO CMA activities, including ICAO coordinated validation missions (ICVMs) and USOAP audits in support of the USOAP CMA. This training is offered in compliance with the ICAO Safety Oversight Audit Manual (Doc 9735).
Upon successful completion of the e-course, participants will be able to:
Effective communication, audit principles, audit techniques, team building, time management, public speaking
Part 2 ― USOAP audit modules
Overview of the ICAO USOAP, the critical elements of an effective State safety oversight system, and an overview of the USOAP audit tools
Part 3 ― ICVM modules
Evolution of USOAP to the CMA followed by ICVM establishment and implementation, process overview, pre-mission phase, on-site phase and post-mission phase
Part 4 ― Audit area modules
Personnel Licensing and Training (PEL), Aircraft operations including dangerous goods (OPS including DG), airworthiness of aircraft ― Part 1 (AIR Part 1), aircraft accident and incident investigation (AIG), aerodromes and ground aids (AGA) and air navigation services (ANS).
