CAA International (CAAi) has been awarded City & Guilds Assured status for its Aviation Security training programmes. The prestigious Assured recognition is a symbol of learning excellence and reassurance that professional training meets the high standards set by City & Guilds.

Sophie Jones, Head of Operations and Training at CAAi commented: “We are delighted to have received City & Guilds Assured status. It is an excellent achievement, and we are proud to be leading the way in providing the global aviation community with aviation security training that meets the highest quality standards.”

CAAi’s City & Guilds Assured courses commence from October 2020 with both virtual and face-to-face learning methods. Participants will receive a City & Guilds certificate upon completion of their training programme. Students will also receive City & Guilds digital credentials, allowing participants to easily share their learning achievements electronically and online, on sites such as LinkedIn.

Kevin Sawyer, Senior Manager of Aviation Security Development at CAAi added: “Gaining City & Guilds Assured status is an important milestone for our aviation security training and the acknowledgement that our training meets the highest standards is something we are very proud of. Given the ever-evolving threats faced by the aviation industry, the regulatory landscape is changing, and we believe key topics such as Security Culture, Performance-Based Oversight and Security Management Systems will play a key role in modernising aviation security. As we look to the future, regulatory standards and best practices need to be underpinned with quality assured, professional training designed and delivered by practising experts.”

Mandy Smith, Executive Director at City & Guilds highlighted: “In what is a tough period for the aviation industry, the commitment of the CAA to ensure high standards is reflected in their commitment to training, I am, therefore, delighted that the CAA have met the Assured benchmark. We look forward to recognising their training and development programmes next year and beyond as they continue the incredibly important work they do to support the aviation industry.”
