The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced its 2014 worldwide best performing training partners as part of its training partner recognition program.
The IATA Training and Development Institute (ITDI) training partner recognition program celebrates top performance among IATA’s Authorized Training Centers (ATCs). The program also awards IATA’s strongest partners in dangerous goods (DG) training—the IATA DG Accredited Training Schools (ATS)—as well as its top regional training partners (RTPs).The recipient in this category is Air Traffic & Navigation Services (ATNS) from South Africa, for the second consecutive year.
Some 450 IATA training partners were evaluated for this year’s program based on the number of students trained and on the quality of training delivered as determined by the student examination pass rate. The excellence of these training centers significantly contributes to the development of the human resource needs for the air transport industry by opening up opportunities for the next generation of aviation professionals worldwide.
