NAHCO moves to save millions on training, sets up IATA learning centre


Funds being spent on trainings abroad are set to be saved, as the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company Plc, (nahco aviance) has again, raised the bar in the nation’s aviation sector by upgrading and transforming its Training Centre to a world class International Air Transport Association (IATA) certified Learning and Development Centre.

The centre will help in facilitating online recruitment tests/examinations, competency tests/ assessment, according to Sanya Onayoade, the ground handling company spokesman.

The newly designed L&D Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities such as a syndicate room, main training room, e-learning, e-library, e-centre VIP lounge and a functional website in conformity with statutory requirements.

He said the centre would offer the industry the much desired training support, especially in ground handling competencies, through its 34 –day intensive training programme in Ramp and Cargo operations, as well as passenger services.

It will also offer industry standard compliance or mandatory training, such as Aviation Security Personnel Training, Searching and Screening Techniques, Cargo Screening, Access control, Documentation and Passenger Handling Training, among others.

In addition, the centre will ensure that commercially accredited IATA courses are offered here in Nigeria and are acceptable worldwide.
