ASA, IPN to Offer International Diploma in Airport Engineering
The Airports and Auxiliary Services Network (ASA) continues to provide new innovative solutions to improve the safety and efficiency of Mexico’s aviation industry, as it announces a new diploma that aims to prepare professionals for airport engineering and certifications.
ASA and Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN) announced the 17th International Diploma in Airport Engineering and Certification (DIICA), which will take place from May 29 to December 6, 2023 in a mixed modality. Both institutions highlighted the importance of offering a diploma that responds to the needs of the aeronautical sector and that fully complies with current regulatory provisions, explained the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transport (SICT) via a press release.
ASA will work through its International Instruction Center (CIIASA) Ing. Roberto Kobeh González and IPN through its Higher School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Ticomán Unit. The diploma will consist of online sessions and face-to-face classes and will aim to provide participants with an updated and in-depth vision of airport knowledge areas, based on certification criteria. The institutions explained that the diploma is vital to allow efficient operations that will enhance safety and reliability in airports and civil aviation.
The course is aimed at different profiles in the industry: airport engineers, architects, administrators, operators, planners and designers, as well as professionals involved in airport certification.
ASA highlighted its commitment to increase professionalism and maintain global safety standards among personnel in national and international civil aviation operations through innovative courses that can improve the technical skills of workers in the industry.
ASA recently reported an increase in passenger traffic of 9.2% during the first four months of 2023 in comparison to the same period of 2022. The ASA network highlighted that it transported 1.3 million passengers during that period, in comparison to the 1.2 million from 2022, as reported by MBN.
“For ASA, air connectivity is synonymous with economic, commercial and tourist development, which encourages the creation of new sources of employment, always complying with the highest safety and quality standards. ASA consolidates its service work by increasing national air connectivity to generate new business links and continue offering world-class airport services,” says ASA.
