Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

August 2021, effective immediate.

UPDATE November 2021: As a training organisation of excellence with global scope, it is our moral obligation to protect all stakeholders around us and implement the fair share of universal precautions and promote safety first principles. The JAA Training Organisation (JAA TO) headquarters are now open operating in a 'corona-proof' facility to guarantee public health safety for all visiting trainees. Virtual and selected classroom training courses are open for registration. Please see the updated schedule for all training offers. More information here.

As the current situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, JAA Training Organisation (JAA TO) accommodates all its stakeholders to the best ability and by following the world’s highest recommended guidelines and procedures. Upon recommendation of the UN specialised agencies the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as the Dutch government (Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport), JAA TO adheres to the recommended protective measures and is closely monitoring the global situation.

With the reopening of its headquarters in Schiphol-Rijk, the Netherlands, the JAA TO is welcoming trainees again for virtual and classroom training. The facility and learning settings are adjusted to accommodate trainees, instructors and staff safely, allow free movement around the building and provide corona-compliant social environments.

The Dutch government (RIVM) implemented new COVID-19 measures on 06 November 2021. In line with the latest measures from the government, JAA TO strongly recommends abiding by the basic rules including the 1,5m safe distance when moving around the facility. In general, when moving, wearing a face mask is strongly recommended especially if the 1,5m distance cannot be adhered to (e.g. elevators). Staying 1,5m away from others is still one of the best ways to prevent the virus from spreading. Wearing a face mask is strongly recommended when in movement. Let’s work together to keep everybody safe.

Shoud you have questions about virtual/classroom training, travel, accommodation or others contact the Training Department or consult our online communication channels. JAA TO staff and instructors remain operational and will be ready to respond to your email on the same day within CET working hours.
