About the course
3-day (24 hours) classroom course
Unruly passengers are a continuing concern for air carriers. Though incidents are rare, an unruly passenger can pose a real threat to the safety of staff and other travelers, and in extreme cases, cause an airline costly penalties and delays. Whether you work in the air or on the ground, handling an unruly passenger is a delicate task. IATA’s Unruly Passenger Prevention and Response course provides practical, methodical training to help you deal with incidents objectively and with confidence. You will learn how to identify and calm unruly behavior in its early stages and have multiple opportunities to develop your skills with role-play exercises carried out throughout the course.
