Aviation security continues to be an area of global concern. Crises and emergencies can quickly develop in an aviation setting, irrespective of the cause, and require trained leaders to respond quickly and effectively -otherwise, a situation that is manageable can quickly spiral out of control, causing international disruption, reputational harm and financial costs. Considering this scenario, the ICAO Global Risk Context Statement provides a high-level description of the security risk in aviation worldwide. The statement offers guidance to help Member States in taking a risk-based approach to maintain and extend their civil aviation security programmes.
This course considers the practical application of the Risk Context Statement at the regional, country and airport levels. It examines how risk-based approaches to all aspects of security (including terrorism) can reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen countermeasures. It examines best-practice methods, and international standards, for managing any crisis that may arise directly or indirectly from the realisation of such risks, including the sensitive handling of people most directly affected.
Ultimately, this training brings effective techniques for supervisor and managers, who need to manage risk and prepare for crises and emergencies in aviation security. The training delivers leaders who can prepare for, respond to, and recover from aviation incidents and crises in a timely and coordinated manner.
The following topics will be addressed in the training:
Interactive activities during the course:
References to established principles, best practices and international models and standards

It examines standards and recommended practices from a range of key organisations such as ICAO, IATA, the United Nations, Interpol and international standards bodies such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the British Standards institute (BSI).
The course has the following aims and objectives
At the end of this course, learners will have a better knowledge and understanding of the risks and threats facing the aviation sector, and be able to prepare and respond more effectively. They should have the general concepts and principles of:
Supervisory or managerial experience in an aviation sector role is desirable.
