The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has as one of its principal goals fostering the improvement and efficiency of air transport through the establishment, maintenance and monitoring of high standards of competency-based training for aviation personnel on a world-wide basis. Consistent with its mandate to ensure that the civil aviation community and member states have access to the pool of qualified professionals needed to support a safe, secure and sustainable global air transport system, ICAO has launched the new TRAINAIR PLUS Program. TRAINAIR PLUS is a cooperative network of civil aviation training centers which develop training courses based on a standardized methodology. To be invited to participate in the ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS program these training centers must have demonstrated their course development, delivery and maintenance activities are in full compliance with the new ICAO instructional system guidelines. This is accomplished through a detailed administrative review of the center’s course catalog and a rigorous on-site audit of their training resources.
