The Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS) has recently been appointed as an IATA Authorized Training Centre (ATC). With this appointment, GCAS will be able to diversify its course portfolio by offering IATA Cargo & Dangerous Goods courses. GCAS has also been designated as the IATA examination centre for Abu Dhabi.
This announcement comes as an addition to the existing IATA Regional Training Center (RTC) recognition that GCAS has held since 2009.
Aws N Al Khanjari, general manager of GCAS said: “This appointment makes GCAS one of the few aviation training centres to have both RTC as well as ATC approval from IATA.”
Companies requiring training in cargo or dangerous goods handling for their employees are also eligible to participate in the IATA Cargo & Dangerous Goods courses.
