The Training Validation Program (TVP) validates training courses through an assessment process. Organizations will be assessed by IATA according to the specific requirements of the program. Organizations compliant with such requirements shall be recognized with a “Certificate of Validation”, attesting that the training course given to their employees has been reviewed and meets the IATA’s training standards, and provides an organization with the opportunity to award their employees with co-branded IATA course certificates.

Effective training reduces turnover

Employees will have a positive feeling about the company, and it saves them time when they are initiated into their job.

The recognition of an organization allows companies to improve the initial and continuous qualification program, instructional materials and content in aviation operational-related training courses in the area of security, safety, cargo, ground operations, facilitation, environment and economics.

Companies that obtain the certification benefit from:

  • Recognition for meeting training standards
  • Providing high-quality and internationally recognized training to employees
  • Increased workforce knowledge and capability to improve the performance of operations
  • Reduced operational risk and avoidance of accidents in the workplace
  • Reduced cost overruns caused by poor performance
  • Enhanced customer satisfaction and increased competitiveness
  • Web listing on the IATA OneSource registry
  • Issuance of co-branded IATA certificates to employees
  • Permission to use the IATA TVP-Course logo for specified promotions

 

Standardization and uniformity

IATA strives to achieve standardization and uniformity in the scope, depth and quality of the assessments conducted. To ensure that all training courses are assessed in a consistent and objective manner, standardized assessment checklists and criteria have been developed to guide the organization through the assessment process. The assessment criteria for the recognition of a training organization are based on two reference documents:

  • Training Validation Program (TVP) Manual
  • TVP-Course Assessment Checklist

The assessment covers the following four (4) critical areas of the training course components:

  1. Initial and continuing qualification
  2. Instructional personnel
  3. Training documentation and records
  4. Training modules and content

Organizations are required to go through an assessment process

TVP recognizes organizations through an assessment process. Organizations will be assessed by IATA according to the specific requirements of the Training Validation Program (TVP). The process to achieve the certification covers three distinct phases.

  1. Self-assessment Using an assessment checklist, the organization must answer numerous questions providing evidence for reference.
  2. Assessment A 2-5-day on-site assessment will be conducted by an IATA assessor to review the course materials to ensure that they match the description received and will observe that the training course is conducted as described in the self-assessment phase.
  3. Validation Follow-up of any Corrective Action Plan (CAP) and its implementation. The IATA Assessment Report will then be issued, and the organization is recognized with an ‘IATA Certificate of Validation’.
