EASA-compliant

ground training with an update guarantee and certificate

Ground training for ground handling services from aviation experts

 

The full range of topics – training that passes audit scrutiny

Ground handling services (GHS) – few occupations can match GHS for the sheer variety of things it does: passenger and baggage handling, cargo and mail handling, refuelling, cleaning, catering – to name just a few. The training implications for GHS are clear. Numerous target groups, a host of different topics and a thicket of regulations – including many from the EASA.

Our online and classroom courses are specifically designed to meet EASA standards. That means your GHS team will pass training audits with flying colours and will always have a legally compliant certificate at the ready.

Just three of many good reasons to trust us with your GHS team’s ground training

Ground operations: Training that meets IATA, EASA and LBA requirements and more

 

Audit-proof training for ground handling services

Well-trained ground handling services are absolutely essential for safe flight operations. As EASA security requirements increase, so do regulations on ground handling services. Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014, which lays down a common EU standard for the planning, operation and maintenance of safe aerodromes, is only one example.

GHS training has to include many more, including the IATA DGR on the transport of dangerous goods, Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/1998 on aviation security training and rules issued by employers’ accident prevention and insurance associations.
