ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS endorsement for Airways New Zealand

Airways New Zealand has been recognised globally for its world-class air traffic control training offering, with the prestigious ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS Associate Member certification.

Airways is the first training provider in Australasia to be awarded the ICAO certification, which provides an official stamp of quality assurance for Airways Air Traffic Services training from the global civil aviation organisation.

The certification follows a rigorous assessment process conducted by ICAO, evaluating the capability of the Airways Training Centre to manage and conduct training courses and provide high standards of training for the global aviation sector.

Airways Head of Training Sharon Cooke says the ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS certification gives Airways international customers confidence that the company is providing Air Traffic Services training at the very highest levels on a global scale.

“Airways is already well-known globally as a trusted and high quality training provider. Our ATC training is a proven success story – with an over 80% success rate, plus the high calibre of our graduates, it costs less to train Air Traffic Controllers through Airways than through most other training programmes,” Ms Cooke says.

“This certification is official endorsement that our training solutions are of a high calibre in the industry, and that means a lot to us and to our customers,” she adds.

Airways Training receives New Zealand Government recognition

Further recognition of the educational performance and quality of Airways Training Centre solutions has come from the New Zealand Government. The New Zealand Qualifications Authority has given the highest possible rating to the centre – ‘highly confident’ – for both its educational performance, and capability in self-assessment – how effectively it uses self-assessment information to understand and improve performance.

“It’s exceptional for a New Zealand training institution to receive a highly confident rating in both of these areas. We’re immensely proud of this outcome. Having NZQA endorsement at the highest level makes it quicker and easier for us to award sought-after NZ-based ATC qualifications to our students, both here in NZ and offshore,” Ms Cooke says.

“We’re pleased that we can send our trainees around New Zealand and the world, knowing they’re competent and well prepared to take on the responsibility of keeping the skies safe,” she concludes.
