Through the years, JAA TO has earned important accreditations and recognitions, including its current status as the only ICAO Training Centre of Excellence (TCE) in Europe and active member of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Virtual Academy (EVA).

ICAO Recognitions & Awards

In 2014, JAA TO became the first ICAO Regional Training Centre of Excellence (RTCE) in Europe. Two years earlier it had already become the very first European full member of the ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS Programme (TPP). Learn more about it below. 

The UN's International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) set up the TRAINAIR PLUS Programme (TPP) to promote training collaboration for the purpose of a safe, secure, and sustainable development of the global air transport. The TPP created the seal "Regional Training Centres of Excellence" (RTCEs, lately know as just TCEs), which is awarded to leading TRAINAIR PLUS Full Members satisfying a series of high-level criteria. Such highly qualified full members are required and enabled to develop and deliver ICAO Standardized Training Packages (ITP) using ICAO provisions (Annexes and guidance material).

In 2022, JAA TO received the new ICAO recognition as TRAINAIR PLUS Training Centre of Excellence - Platinum Member, the only TCE in Europe and 1 of 4 Platinum Excellence centres worldwide.

JAA TO is also a member of the: 

  • ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS Steering Committee (TPSC) - since its inception. The TPSC is responsible for providing ICAO with guidance and advice on the development and improvement of the TPP. For the term 2021 - 2024, the JAA TO CEO is acting TPSC Chair.
  • ICAO Coordination Group (COG) for the Language Proficiency Requirements Implementation Task Force (LPRI TF).
  • Training Policy Group (TPG) for ICAO EUR CAPSCA (the Collaborative Arrangement for the Prevention and Management of Public Health Events in Civil Aviation).
