What is the rationale for the ATI initiative?
 
Organizations worldwide are increasingly confronted with the need to continually ensure that human resources possess the knowledge and skills needed to perform their jobs. Because of this need, workplace learning has become an essential mechanism to develop human potential and ensure organizational success. The field of workplace learning is animated by five foundational principles:
  1. Being systematic and methodical.
  2. Being systemic and inclusive.
  3. Using theory-informed practice.
  4. Being open to using all effective means and methods.
  5. Being relevant to both individuals and organizations. 


The purpose of the ACI ATI initiative is helping airport training departments develop and offer quality learning activities that fully meet internationally recognized standards for excellence in workplace learning. It reflects the fundamental principles that, (a) on-going learning is a key component of organizational success; (b) that learning at work is about improving human performance; (c) and all performance improvements must reflect recognized standards.
