CIASSA Taught 1,042 Courses in 2022
The International Training Center for Airports and Auxiliary Services (CIASSA) increased its academic offer in 2022 to improve air transport and civil aviation requirements for the sector’s professionals. CIASSA aims to offer more specialized and updating courses in 2023, as the sector demands more technical requirements out of workers.
CIASSA offered more than 1,000 specialized online courses focused on air transport and civil aviation security in 2022 at its facilities in the Mexico City International Airport (AICM). The goal of these courses was to advance the professional development of national and international aviation sector personnel with world-class training, according to CIASSA.
CIASSA started operations in 2010 as a Regional Center for Aviation Safety Instruction, a member of the Trainair Plus Program and a registered party of the Federal Civil Aviation Agency of Mexico (AFAC). As part of the Airports and Auxiliary Services (ASA) network, it has a team of highly trained instructors and is globally recognized as one of the best centers of this type.
CIASSA has instructors accredited by AFAC and state-of-the-art facilities where it offers workshops, diplomas and conferences in compliance with ICAO standards in Mexico and Latin America, on issues related to airport and aviation security focused on three main areas: Factor and Human Development (FDH), Civil Aviation Security (AVSEC), and Operational Security.
The center works with private and public institutions, including SEGOB, SEMAR, SEDENA, AFAC, AICM, OMA, Aeroméxico, Viva Aerobus, Volaris, Airbus Helicopters and Estafeta, among others, explains CIASSA on its website. More than 15,000 national and foreign aeronautical professionals enrolled to the courses offered in 2022, of which 509 were online, 362 face-to-face and 171 following a hybrid modality. CIASSA explained that personnel from various airlines, the National Guard, the Mexico City International Airport, the Ministry National Defense and the Navy were among the participants.
The courses with the greatest demand in 2022 were: Recurrent CRM Overcharges, Overcharges in A320/321 Equipment, General Awareness in Civil Aviation Safety and Facilitation, Recurrent CRM Pilots, CFIT/ALAR, Introduction to Operational Safety, Instruction Basic for ICAO Personnel Responsible for Airport Security (Basic), Behavior Analysis for AVSEC and Inspection of People and their Possessions. For 2023, “ASA reaffirms its leadership in Latin America and guarantees the professional development of personnel from the national and international aviation sector through world-class training,” said ASA via a press release.
