JAA TO HQ reopening with traditional classroom added back to schedule



Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands. July 20, 2021. After an unprecedented year for the aviation industry that set back many of the sector’s domains including facilitation and training, the JAA Training Organisation (JAA TO) is one step closer to back-to-normal operations. Starting September this year, the JAA TO headquarters in Schiphol-Rijk, the Netherlands, reopen to welcome staff, instructors and trainees offering traditional classroom training for selected courses. As vital part of the organisation’s business strategy, virtual classroom remains the flexible offer for trainees that otherwise cannot partake in physical training.

The 2021 Training Schedule has been recently updated. Trainees can register for selected traditional or virtual classroom courses via the JAA TO website.

Next to traditional and virtual classroom, JAA TO also introduces new hybrid training. The hybrid mode allows in-class and virtual participants to join the same training course combining face-to-face and virtual interaction, whilst introducing new technology without jeopardizing the well-known high-quality level of training. Successful trials have been completed last year before the so-called second wave of the corona pandemic.

In its priority to protect staff and trainees present at the HQ, JAA TO puts processes in place to guarantee a safe environment. This means that the facility and classroom infrastructure is “corona-proof”. JAA TO adheres to the recommended protective measures and is closely monitoring the global situation through routine exchange with the responsible local authorities in the Netherlands and active news media watch.

Eliminating risks and adhering to safety first principles, the JAA TO HQ reopening initiates steps towards the premise to build back better the European aviation sector.

JAA TO Director Paula Almeida, MEd, notes: “As training organisation of excellence with global scope, the JAA TO is excited and optimistic to welcome trainees to the facility again. The atmosphere and learning environment are unique, classroom training adds the special social component to teaching and knowledge transfer. For our virtual trainees, we continue to offer real-time distance learning. More than 18-months’ worth of positive feedback on virtual classroom training strengthen our digital business model and are proof of global leadership for aviation training organisations providing (e)learning solutions.”
