A constantly evolving threat from terrorism means that Aviation Security forms an integral part of national security measures. All staff with unescorted access to identifiable secure air cargo will require training to some degree and fall into 3 distinct groups: those working for a Regulated Cargo Agent, those employed by a Known Consignor, or drivers of these, and those working under a Contracted Haulier Declaration.

Within this section you will find the classroom courses and the online equivalent. If booking any of these courses for the first time, it is worth contacting us to ensure your staff are being trained to the correct level, as required by the DfT/CAA .
