Contract Courses

Meeting A Need

Aircraft operators, airports and aviation authorities often have the need to provide USC Aviation Safety and Security courses to a large number of employees.  In order to respond to this need, the USC Aviation Safety and System Safety program courses are available upon request at locations other than our Los Angeles classrooms.  This allows an aviation organization to train its employees in a short amount of time for a relatively modest cost.

Within the last year we have conducted off-site courses on several continents.  The Civil Aviation Authority of South Africa hosted a course in Gas Turbine Accident Investigation which was marked by the granting of eight program certificates.  Air New Zealand in Auckland was the scene of an Aviation Safety Management course.  In the Caribbean, the training center for the Civil Aviation Authority of Trinidad & Tobago provided support for courses in Aircraft Accident Investigation and Human Factors in Aviation.  The Threat and Error Management course was provided in Tokyo, Japan for air safety employees of Japan Airlines.

On the domestic scene, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) received training for Aviation Safety Inspectors in Aviation Safety Management Systems at their Lakeland, FL center.

The previous year saw USC training provided in Seoul, Korea for Korean Airlines and a host of other Asian air carriers.

Organizations interested in arranging for a contract course at their own facilities should contact Tom Anthony, Program Director at: thomasa@usc.edu or at 310-342-1352, 310-342-1349.
