Istanbul, Aug 28 () - The TAV Academy, the training and consulting company of TAV Airports, has been certified by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) following their audit, with TAV Academy being listed among its 16 international private training centers, the company said in a written statement Aug. 27.
“Following the two-month audit process, ICAO officials came to Istanbul and reviewed the activities and standards of TAV Academy for four days. At the end of the audit, TAV Academy has been proven to comply with the designated standards in terms of training design, presentations, competencies of the trainers and quality management system” said the company.
One of the main activities of the ICAO is to improve the competencies of aviation employees and define global standards in training. With this new status, the TAV Academy has been certified as ICAO TRAINAIR Plus member.
“Whilst ICAO TRAINAIR Plus members are mostly composed of civil aviation authorities of the countries, which are liable to give training, there are only 16 companies certified in private sector” said the company.
Founded in 1944 to set the standards for the civil aviation sector and provide guidance to other civil aviation organizations to audit these standards, the ICAO is a specialized agency of the United Nations, which currently has 191 member companies and stands out as the main organization that defines the standards in the training of civil aviation employees.
