The International Air Transport Association (IATA) said that an agreement has been signed with Centre en sûreté Alerte to provide a three-year schedule of Aviation Security (AVSEC) training at its newly established airpole training facility in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

According to IATA, the courses will be delivered in English and in French for Aviation Security (AVSEC) professionals in a unique combination of classroom and simulation environments.

The syllabus, IATA stated, would include: Aviation Cyber security, Air Cargo Security, Predictive Passenger Screening and Security Management Systems.

According to IATA’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Services, Mark Hubble,  “By combining IATA’s deep expertise in training on global standards with the imminent development of the cutting edge facilities of Airpole, we will continue to build the pool of qualified and competent aviation security professionals needed to meet future demand in Quebec, in Canada and across North America.”

On his part, President of Centre en sûreté Alerte, Bernard Ricard, said, “Our vision is to build a center of excellence to help the aviation sector meet ever-evolving security challenges. IATA, with its headquarters in Montreal and strong global reputation in training aviation professionals, is a natural partner in achieving this goal.”

Airpole will join the growing list of IATA’s Regional Training Centres helping to deliver training to over 100,000 students and aviation professionals worldwide.

IATA stated that the courses are intended to begin in 2016 with details set to appear on the IATA and Airpole websites shortly.
