Civil Aviation Safety Symposium Approved for Continuing Education

Published: Monday, July 5, 2004 - 22:00

The Civil Aviation Safety Symposium has been approved for Federal Aviation Administration training credits and RUs from the American Society for Quality.

Attendance at the CASS is now FAA-approved for 16 hours under 14 CFR 65.93(a)(4) and AC 65-25BU, and meets Board of Certified Safety Professionals requirements for one COC point. Also included in the schedule of events is a three-hour FAA-approved training course. Attendees will also be eligible for 1.8 RUs, which apply to ASQ recertification requirements.

The symposium, formally the Conference on Quality in Commercial Aviation, will be held at the Westin Hotel-Galleria in Dallas Sept. 7-9. It’s sponsored by the FAA and the Aviation/Space and Defense division of the ASQ. Highlights will include:

  • What you need to know about FAR Part 145 revisions involving repair stations

  • Tools to improve cost effectiveness of service operations without compromising reliability and safety performance of aviation products

  • The transition from JAA to EASA and its effects on you

  • How to be cost-effective and productive while employing lean and CMMI principles, and the use of outsourcing

  • Assessments of the types of threats to security the industry faces and perspectives on how these threats are being met
