System Wide Information Management Fundamentals (e-learning)



About the course

2.5-hour e-learning course

IATA System Wide Information Management Fundamentals aviation training course

This course will provide you with foundational knowledge of the ICAO concept of System Wide Information Management (SWIM) and its associated applications. SWIM consists of standards, infrastructure, and governance enabling the management of ATM-related information and its exchange between qualified parties via interoperable services. The evolution of legacy Air Traffic Management (ATM) system solutions have created a misalignment in information sharing due to disparate operating systems and procedures. Systems have not been designed to be implemented in a globally interoperable manner within globally agreed parameters. Many of the interfaces have limited flexibility and are unable to accommodate new users, additional systems, new content, or updated formats. Through media-rich learning activities, you will gain insight into life in a SWIM-enabled world.
