In the heavily regulated aviation industry, a comprehensive understanding of global (ICAO) and regional (EU) regulations is crucial for aviation professionals. The Aviation Policy and Regulations Micro-Credential module serves as an introduction to the regulatory environment that governs aviation at Irish, European, and international levels.
The primary objective of this module is to equip aviation managers with the necessary skills to assess the strengths and weaknesses of aviation regulation. By doing so, you will be better equipped to effectively manage operational and commercial functions within the industry.
Emphasis will be placed on exploring the provisions of aviation regulations that are most relevant to management, allowing for practical application in real-world scenarios. Aimed at non-lawyers, the Aviation Policy and Regulations Micro-Credential module utilises plain English explanations of regulatory laws, supported by case studies and practical examples.
In addition to developing an understanding of leadership principles, this module aims to enhance your strategic thinking abilities and your comprehension of organisational and leadership challenges.
The delivery of lectures are interactive, encouraging you to actively participate in class discussions. As well as this, topics will be presented in a historical context, tracing the evolution of aviation regulation through its different stages. This approach aims to provide valuable insights into contemporary issues faced by the industry.
