Togo civil aviation delegates join CAAi for safety training

Posted 12 April 2018 · Add Comment

Delegates from Togo joined others from Albania and Azerbaijan on a visit to the UK to CAA International (CAAi) for its Airworthiness Inspector Theory and Advanced Safety Management – Evaluating for Effectiveness training courses.

The training was fully funded by CAAi under its social enterprise activity and delivered in cooperation with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to support its No Country Left Behind (NCLB) initiative.

The objective of the training was to provide a comprehensive overview of the processes and procedures established by ICAO and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Both courses aimed to enhance delegate’s skills and knowledge within the relevant subject area.
In 2015, ICAO launched the NCLB campaign to assist States to effectively implement ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices and policies so that all States have access to reliable aviation system. The success of the NCLB depends in part on the support from partners and donors. Last year, CAAi became a Social Enterprise and committed to reinvest a substantial part of any profit that CAAi makes back into the global aviation community where it is needed the most. To support this commitment, CAAi partnered with ICAO to support the NCLB initiative by funding places on training courses to help enhance the regulatory capability in developing countries.

Delegates were shortlisted by ICAO and CAAi using comprehensive data intelligence sources, including the Universal Safety and Security Audit Programmes (USOAP and USAP). “The programme is aimed at developing countries with a focus to enhance their regulatory capability,” said CAAi’s communications manager Stuart Coates .
Kokouvi Afelete N’ Bouke, the director safety manager for Togo Civil Aviation Authority said: “The course has covered all the expected objectives and has offered valuable knowledge about the evaluation of the four components of SMS including SRM and SPM. We have also discussed the Phase 2 tools that the UK CAA uses to evaluate the effectiveness of an operator’s or a services provider’s SMS. Some of my favourite moments were group discussions during the practical exercises when we were sharing our experience. I am definitely leaving with plenty of new skills and will use it in my role within our CAA.”

This was only first delivery under this agreement. CAAi will host additional 25 fellowship places in 2018, covering wide range of the regulatory oversight disciplines including Flight Operations Inspector Theory, Dangerous Goods, Cabin Safety, EASA Part M Continuing Airworthiness and EASA Part 145.

The CAAi Senior Manager for International Operations Training, Silke Buckley said: “We are very pleased to be part of this important ICAO initiative and we were delighted to welcome the delegates from Azerbaijan, Albania and Togo on our first deliveries under this project. We are glad these delegates found the training useful for them and their organisations. We are looking forward to welcome more delegates under this programme in the near future.”
