Continuing education programmes in the field of Risk & Security

Integrated Risk Management

Risk management used to be focused on recognising damage potential as early as possible and minimising it. Modern risk management based on ISO 31000:2009 adheres to another approach, however. It is focused primarily on the goals of a company or organisation, e.g. the strategic and operational goals as well as compliance and performance targets. The primary task is to protect the implementation of these goals and promote their achievement. Risk management is thus an effective combination of risk and opportunity management.

Our MAS, DAS and CAS continuing education programmes in the field of Integrated Risk Management provide you with various opportunities to become acquainted with this new risk-management approach in both theory and practice.

Continuing education course in Advanced Aviation Meteorology (AdAvMet)

In recent decades, a widening gap has developed between traditional aviation meteorology of the kind examined in pilot’s licence tests and the range of information and insights that are available today. The AdAvMet continuing education course is designed to help its participants fill that gap in their knowledge. The weather forecast models used today, for example, provide more detailed information on relevant weather events, such as turbulence, than can be presented on the standard significant weather charts. Furthermore, recently discovered hazards, such as high altitude ice crystal icing, are not covered in basic pilot training and have thus not yet been included in standard training manuals.

The purpose of the course is to refresh participants’ existing knowledge where this has maintained its validity (on storms, for example) and to complement it with new insights. AdAvMet thus serves both to refresh and extend its participants’ knowledge.

Continuing education course Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT)

Inadequate training of a pilot for dealing with unusual or extreme flight attitudes can result in potentially hazardous or incorrect operation and control inputs on the aeroplane. Despite the rareness of such unintended flight attitudes and the experience of many pilots, the loss of control over the aircraft by the crew (Loss of Control in Flight, LOC-I) is the leading cause of aircraft accidents in commercial and private aviation. Almost 25% of all accidents and 40% of all fatal accidents are caused by the so-called LOC-I. The UPRT continuing education course addresses this problem and enables mainly private pilots but also pilots of other licence levels to train in and extend solution strategies for the prevention of and coping with unusual flight conditions (Upsets).
