Aviation Safety Engineer Job Functions

The skills and knowledge gained in this workshop will enable students to carry out regulatory responsibilities related to the administration of the Aircraft Certification and Continued Operational Safety. This course content provides the Civil Aviation Safety Engineers (Systems - Electrical) with the knowledge and skills to conduct oversight of aviation safety, aircraft certification and Continued Operational Safety. These areas of responsibility include, but are not limited to, Type Certification, Amended Type Certification, Supplemental Type Certification, Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA), Technical Standard Order (TSO) Continued Operational Safety, Flight manuals, and Operational Approvals.

The workshop's emphasis will be on Aircraft Certification activities as well as Continued Operational Safety tasks. With the goal to enable the students to provide regulatory oversight for the engineering certification activities that they are responsible for. In addition, the students will receive specific training on job functions for mechanical and electrical systems.

What Will You Learn

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
  • Comprehend the FAA processes for certification of products
  • Efficiently manage certification programs
  • Describe the principles of Type Certification and Supplemental Type Certification requirements and process
  • Communicate effectively with the FAA on certification programs
  • Describe the FAA system, FAA orders, Advisory Circulars, FAA rule making process
  • Identify Equivalent Level of Safety, Special Conditions and Exemptions
  • Identify the difference between airworthiness standard and operational rules
  • Explain the FAA Enforcement procedures and applicant action

Is This Course For You

This seminar is designed for aerospace engineering roles such as: certification engineers, certification technicians, engineering leadership, program managers, and business development personnel. This course applies to any discipline associated with certification in areas such as: certifying products, testing, leading/managing certification projects and regulatory impact on new business opportunities. The information presented in this seminar builds on the content of FAA Certification, Operations & Maintenance Orientation (ID# C1707) and FAA Part 21 Certification Procedures for Products and Parts (ID# C1701) but goes beyond certification into operations and maintenance activities in greater detail.
