Professional Certificate Courses

The ACI GT Professional Certificate Courses consist of a full range of professional courses covering every possible airport-related topic and are designed to enhance the competencies of airport personnel from entry through to management levels. Related topics include:
Safety is the number one priority for ACI, airports and the entire aviation community. Our core functional expertise is dedicated to safety. Our safety training portfolio provides airport safety professionals and aviation executives with the knowledge needed to ensure their airport operations are safe for their customers and employees. The ACI Global Training Certificate specialized courses also include safety courses offered under the ACI Global Safety Network (GSN) Programme.
Security is critical in the development, management and operation of the world’s airports. ACI takes a very active role in lobbying and working with regulatory authorities helping to shape regulations and ensuring that changes in security are communicated to airport authorities. This expertise is extended to our security training courses.
Airport Facilitation consists of the efficient management of the flow of passengers, baggage, cargo and mail through the airport facilities, ensuring that services are delivered in a healthy, safe and secure environment, and meeting and exceeding when possible the needs and expectations of customers. A strong customer service culture coupled with efficient processes to maximize passenger traffic flow is a determining factor in providing a positive travel experience to the airport’s customers.
Airports continue to develop new business models and invest capital in order to meet the needs of a burgeoning aviation industry. Airports have evolved from being government infrastructure providers into sophisticated business-oriented service providers. This requires airport managers and staff to increase their skills in the areas of commercial management and economic development.
Airports are very much part of the communities within which they operate. Reducing their impact on the environment is a major focus for many airports around the world. While much of the current attention is on climate change and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, it is just one of a number of areas in which airports and the rest of the aviation industry are active when it comes to the environment.
Management and Technical
ACI offers a wide range of courses in airport management and operations which may be taken as independent classes, part of a certificate programme or as a global ACI-ICAO AMPAP Elective.
