Airport 101 – In The Beginning

The International Association of Airport Executives Canada (IAAE Canada) is pleased to present this Online Training Program created primarily for Airport entry level employees and executives who are not familiar with Airport operations and management. The Airport 101 course is also available in full as a two day program at an Airport site. (See our website for details)

In order to accommodate the increasing changes in Airport employment and to make it as cost effective as possible, this course has been assembled in on-line modules. That way you can decide which modules are necessary and applicable to a particular employee. Maybe over time that means all the modules.

Upon successful completion of the modules, entry-level employees will be comfortable to continue their duties and responsibilities at their respective positions. As well, they will be qualified to undertake any specific functional area courses (specialty) for career advancement.

We view this course not only as an introduction to the Airport industry but a preview of the more in-depth, Basic Airport Safety & Operations School (BASOS). Others participants have followed this up with the Advanced version (AASOS) and eventually the IAAE Canada Accreditation Program.

Note: Each module should take less than hour to complete including the competency quiz.

This Module is Introduction to Airfield Maintenance:
Subject Matter Expert: Barry Feller A.A.E.

Course Objectives: The objective of this course is to familiarize the participant with airfield maintenance practices at Canadian Airports.   At the end of the course the participant will have a basic knowledge of the functions, elements and importance of these procedures.
