TIACA and TSA Group to develop cargo training programmes

TIACA welcomes six new members to the Board of Directors

TIACA has been appointed a non-exclusive agent by TSA Group, throwing its weight behind a training programme focusing on the transport of dangerous goods and aviation security.

As part of the partnership, The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) will work with UK-based aviation consultancy firm TSA Group on the development of new courses aimed at providing participants with a complete overview of the aviation industry.

The courses to be developed in the coming months include topics such as ‘Air Transportation – A Manager’s Perspective’ and ‘Aviation Management’, and will provide insight on issues ranging from the history of aviation, to airline management and the international sector.

TIACA secretary general, Vladimir Zubkov says training is essential for the success of the industry and the association is in a unique position to support and encourage this.

He says: “Our partnership with TSA Group will complement the well-established courses structured and run by the Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI) and provide for a combination of different methods of training, thus offering TIACA members a comprehensive and modern training environment.”

TSA Group’s courses, which are certified by the UK Department for Transport, are available both in classroom and online and involve a wide range of topics such as general security awareness, air cargo security, lithium battery transport and advanced screening regimes.

TIACA will also be working with the consultancy group on courses exploring soft skills such as communication, instructional techniques and supervisory skills, as well as health and safety training.

TSA Group managing director, Patricia Setrakian says: “TSA Group’s partnership with TIACA will enable our training programs reach to a wider audience facilitating great quality and effective training. Well trained staff apply better efficiencies to the operation whilst maintaining compliance at the highest level. This is of considerable value, especially in our industry.”
