EASA Part CAMO Safety (SMS) & Human Factors (HF) Training (Initial) with VO

Part M

Brochure ButtonEffective 24 March 2020 EASA has with the introduction of Part CAMO has created a requirement for Initial and Recurrent - Integrated Safety & Human Factors Training.

By September 2021 all European CAMO Organisations should transition to Part CAMO and will need to demonstrate mandatory compliance with Safety & Human Factor Training In Accordance with GM2 CAMO.A.305(g).

This Course satisfied the initial training obligations related to Safety Management Systems within a CAMO environment with due consideration to Human Factors. 
With SMS we have a set of regulations, which allow Industry to establish best-practice that fits different cultures and place the main emphasis and duty on improving safety performance. This requires a real “team effort” as regulator and airline are all part of one large system. Working as a team it will be possible to improve an already highly impressive safety record and allow organisations to conduct more of their own oversight and assurance.

People are at the core of our aviation system and the need to remain aware of the potential for human error driven exposure is ever-present.

We must strive to ensure we are able to deliver a strong human performance to protect both the person and the system. We need to effectively manage human factors within the organization, to do so we need to address the risks and exposures, all threats need to be understood and mitigation put into place to address them.

The course is highly participative and stimulates involvement and provides for powerful HF motivation and awareness. The aim is to give delegates a full introduction to Aircraft Maintenance Human Factors.

The course meets the full intent of EASA Part CAMO Requirements (Initial SMS & human factors training should cover all the topics of the training syllabus specified in GM2 CAMO.A.305(g)

The training will introduce the delegates to all elements of Aviation Safety Systems & Human Factors with the intention of providing a better understanding of the subject and to find workable methods to improve standards and compliance.

Its objectives are to consider and understand the implications of error, the organisation’s safety culture, its procedures and safety policy, and methods of communication.


For anyone who wishes to engage with the aviation maintenance system or who has an organisational obligation to ensure completion of Initial SMS & Human Factors Training.

The training will also be of benefit for anyone who needs to understand, manage, and support the need to fully engage with human interaction within the organisation.


a) Be able to demonstrate compliance with EASA GM2 CAMO.A.305(g) and SMS & Human Factor Training Requirements
b) Achieve an in-depth understanding regarding basic Aviation Safety Concepts
c) Be able to consider Human Factors knowledge and integrate into key areas of aviation Safety Maintenance
d) Familiarise with key human performance issues relevant to Maintenance Operations
e) Achieve a strong Understanding of Safety & Human Factor Principles
