Airport Safety

ICAO-ACI Implementing Annex 14: Advanced Aerodrome Design and Operations Course:

As safety is the industry’s number one priority, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and Airports Council International (ACI) World have joined forces to offer a dedicated week of training to help airports strengthen safety compliance and prepare for future challenges. The simultaneous delivery of the ACI-ICAO Implementing Annex 14: Advanced Aerodrome Design and Operations course will be offered in four (4) official languages (English, French, Spanish and Russian), and in various time zones.

The goal of the course is to enable the target audience to support the implementation of the ICAO Annex 14 in their aerodromes to achieve compliance. The online part of the course will allow trainees to grasp the theoretical aspects of Aerodrome Design and Operations, as detailed in ICAO Annex 14 Volume 1.
