Global Aviation Training – Webinar Series

In light of COVID-19 upending international travel and bringing physical events to a standstill, the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Aviation Training Section (GAT) is organizing a series of webinars on Adapting to a New Normal in Aviation Training in order to stay connected with TRAINAIR PLUS Programme (TPP) Members, Partners and the aviation industry.

Join one of the webinars to be convened in June 2021 in various official ICAO languages. The theme of the webinar will focus on the rapidly evolving training landscape since the onset of the pandemic as well as highlight the digital learning tools and solutions offered by ICAO and regional guest speakers that are being implemented to train aspiring and current aviation professionals. The webinar also aims to raise awareness of the training benefits and challenges posed by the pandemic and provide a forum for participants to share best practices and engage in constructive dialogue about aviation training’s new normal.
