ICAO and the University of Waterloo, have established a partnership to support an e-learning course on the fundamentals of the air transport system, to provide greater access to affordable quality training in order to attract, educate and retain the next generation of skilled aviation professionals.
The course is geared for aspiring aviation professionals as well as professionals transitioning into aviation. It contains nine modules covering air law, aircraft, operations, navigation, airports, security, environment, accidents and safety. Each narrated module ranges from 45 to 90 minutes in duration, and profiles aviation professionals working within that area. A combination of imagery, videos, interactive cases and problems are incorporated to explore sector-related matters. Trainees will need to complete the course and the exam to earn their online course certificate.
