Belgian inspectors undergo training on covert testing
Brussels, 5-7 April 2022 - The Best Practices on Covert Testing training course held at the beginning of April was the first training course in the security domain organised by ECAC on-site in 2022. The course offered eight inspectors from the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the covert testing methodology and test items for different areas of tests.
The three-day activity covered best practices for developing test protocols, selecting the most appropriate test items, managing test items during their use, storage and transportation, and mitigating associated risks.
Through classroom activities and on-site practical activities organised at an airport and on the premises of a regulated agent, the participants acquired practical experience in conducting covert tests in different areas of aviation security, including concealing the test items, according to the established protocols and using the recommended approach.
