The Center of Excellence - Training Validation program addresses the industry’s need for greater training standardization.

The program promotes mutual recognition for airlines and other operator training organizations dedicated to air transportation, benefiting all stakeholders: employees, customers and partners.

 

Apply excellence in corporate training by establishing effective learning and development programs

 

The program:

  • Draws on IATA’s expertise in the development of global standards and professional support with a wide range of products and services.
  • Aims to help airlines and other operator training organizations dedicated to air transportation, elevate workforce learning and development capability, thereby transforming these organizations to provide excellence in corporate training.
  • Provides the expertise to equip organizations with the capability in the design and development of performance-based, up-to-date training programs and other quality learning activities, that fully meet international standards.
  • Assures that trainees have achieved the skills and knowledge that the training course was intended to provide, and validates that the entire training program process is designed and developed correctly.
