JAA TO receives recognition as Dutch aviation security training centre



Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands. 26 May 2022 – In May 2022, in another milestone achievement, the JAA Training Organisation (JAA TO) has been certified as a national training organisation for “Aviation Security Training Courses” by the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security (Nationaal Coördinator Terrorismebestrijding en Veiligheid / Koninklijke Marechaussee). Also, the newly developed training course Opleiding Security Manager Luchthavenexploitant (ENG: Training for Airport Security Managers) is recognised by the ministry which covers domestic security programs, quality programs and training activity in accordance with the National Training Program for Civil Aviation Security (NOBB).

The Airport Security Manager Training has been developed in accordance with the requirements as included in the Dutch NOBB to provide insight into the threat against civil aviation and the measures that can be taken to ensure civil aviation security is guaranteed.

The aim of the training is to provide competency-based training to security managers regarding their role and responsibilities in the establishment and maintenance of the security and internal quality control program, including its implementation, arising from the applicable law and regulations in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 11.2.2 and 11.2.5.

After successful completion participants receive a recognised certificate with reference to point 11.2.5  of the Regulation (EU) 2015/1998 which is valid for 30 months after completing the initial training.

This course is for senior security airport managers who must have a valid and recognised certificate and have the responsibility to ensure that a security program and its implementation meet all legal requirements. In compliance with the NOBB, these training activities strengthen the national aviation security system and culture” says Eric Schoonderwoerd, JAA TO Course Development Unit Manager.

JAA TO Director Paula V. de Almeida, MEd on the recognition as a training centre: “The positive evaluations by the Dutch ministry are a great milestone in the organisation’s aviation security domain. As training organisation with Dutch roots, we are proud to support the domestic air transport industry in complying with the highest security levels.”

Dr. Alessio Quaranta, JAA TO Foundation Board Chair adds: “The recognition illustrates the proactive and successful approaches the organisation is taking in training development. This initiative is exemplary for European aviation security harmonisation.
