               ASO Course Prerequisites

Aviation Safety Officer Course (CIN: S4J-3302)
 

Reading

The ASO course moves at a very rapid pace. We have observed that the more the student is prepared upon arrival, the easier the transition back into an academic environment.

The content of the Aviation Safety Officer course is heavily influenced by the OPNAVINST 3750.6S Naval Aviation Safety Management System. Attendees should review (at a minimum) the following sections:

  • Chapter 1: All
  • Chapter 2: All
  • Chapter 3: All

ORM Courses

The School of Aviation Safety believes that operational safety is a key component of combat readiness. As such, Operational Risk Management (ORM) is embedded throughout the ASO curriculum. Upon completion of the ASO course, the student will be designated an Operational Risk Management Assistant.

ORM was introduced into Naval Aviation in 1995 and implemented into the ASO curriculum that same year. During the past decade, ORM has evolved and become an integral part of naval operations, training, and planning. ORM is formalized in OPNAVINST 3500.39B / MCO 3500.27B. Attendees arriving at ASO School are expected to have a solid understanding of ORM fundamentals. The ORM sessions of the ASO course begin with the assumption that the student has completed initial fleet ORM training. We build upon that foundation.

Prior to attending School of Aviation Safety ASO course, Navy students shall complete applicable ORM courses available through Navy Knowledge Online. USCG should be familiar with USCG and local ORM policy. Students are to bring copies of course completion certificates or fax documentation to the School of Aviation Safety. Students who are unable to complete these training modules prior to attending class will be required to do so during the first few days of instruction at the ASO course.
