ACI and ICAO to provide aerodrome training

Posted 9 June 2017 · Add Comment

Airports Council International (ACI) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) have signed an MoU to work together on a wide range of aerodrome training services to benefit the 1,940 ACI Member Airports worldwide, and to support the 191 ICAO Member States.

The MoU will see ACI and ICAO working together to develop new joint aerodrome training programmes and courses in: general airport management; airport economics; environmental protection; operational safety; security procedures; and other subjects as they are identified.

"This signing highlights the alignment of both our organizations in regards to investment in training and succession planning, essential ingredients of sustainable growth," said Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World. "Airports need a range of skills that must be continually evaluated and refreshed. The urgency in the aviation business is driven both by changes in market conditions as well as the significant growth in global demand. The MoU will build on ACI Global Training suite of skills development programmes in specific disciplines, with diploma-level courses, in the classroom, on-line or at the worksite." 

"ICAO is strengthening its collaboration with ACI and reaffirming its commitment to providing targeted assistance in training and human resources capacity building to ICAO Member States," said Dr. Fang Liu, Secretary General, ICAO. "This new partnership is a perfect example of what our two organizations can achieve when we join forces and capitalize on our respective strengths, and through these joint training activities we'll be able to increase global awareness of ICAO Standards and Policies while enhancing competencies of current and future airport professionals."
