Aviation Security Awareness – ½ Day


This Half day Course available either in the classroom or online provides a general introduction to the role of AVSEC (Aviation Security) within the Aviation System

The Aviation Industry is an attractive target for terrorist and criminals and all staff working in the industry need to be well aware of different threats and how we can play a role to either support prevention or to know how to react in case of a security incident.

Whilst there are designated staff and managers which take care of aviation security. Security is the responsibility of everybody and the more people who are involved in this process, the better is our chance of preventing incidents.

Security awareness training remains the best way to ensure people are aware of the threats and risks.
