Apron Management

Professional Certificate Course
Delivery: Classroom
Duration: 5 days

All airports must “manage” the risks associated with an aircraft turnaround and ensure that safety is never compromised. Statistically however, the apron can be the most dangerous place at an airport where unusual types of specialized equipment and people with different priorities gather to perform their work, often under significant pressure from time and space constraints. This course emphasizes how a well-managed apron not only reduces accidents but also improves efficiency and the quality of customer service.
