Basic Aviation Security Training for Member States
Videoconference, 15-17 February 2023 — An online Basic Aviation Security Training course presenting an overview of the key aviation security measures in ECAC Doc 30, Part II – Security, and the security technologies used for screening, was conducted by the ECAC Secretariat on 15-17 February for national auditors and other representatives of the appropriate authorities of Belgium, Estonia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. A security expert from Cyprus contributed as an instructor.
The history of civil aviation security, the threats and likely methods of attack, as well as the role of risk management in addressing such threats were also reviewed. Participants also looked at the specific role and responsibilities of the appropriate authority and other entities involved in the aviation security system.
The ECAC Secretariat received a high number of nominations to attend the course; an additional course will therefore be organised in March 2023 to meet the needs expressed by Member States.
