IATA Emergency Planning and Response for Airports and GSPs aviation training course

Airport Operators must be able to cope with an emergency occurring at the airport or in its vicinity and to minimize the impact. They play a leading role in the effectiveness of the experts’ team and the Airport Community to respond. Knowledgeable and skilled personnel must ensure prompt and competent response, based on the Airport Emergency Response Plan (ERP - AEP), previously coordinated with potentially involved agencies and stakeholders. This course gives you managerial and technical skills to take on an expert role in an airport emergency response. Ground Handling Services Providers (GSPs) play an important role integrating and implementing Airlines’ and GSP’s Station Emergency Response Plans (SERP). You will learn to develop, train and test an AEP/SERP according to industry practice and regulatory requirements, for both airport operators and GSP.
