AAAE Recognizes 101 Airports for Training Excellence

The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) recently recognized 101 airports with an ANTN Digicast Excellence in Airport Training award for training completed in 2016.

An ANTN Digicast Excellence in Airport Training award signifies that airport employees and others working at each facility have completed a specified amount of federally-mandated, airport-specific training and continuing education using ANTN Digicast’s web-based training system. The award levels are based on total training programs completed and total number of employees trained at each airport. Levels vary based on the airport’s hub size. Each winning airport is presented with a plaque marking the achievement.

“Digicast was created for airports as a cost-effective, efficient way to help them comply with training requirements, and we’re encouraged that so many airports have made it an integral part of their training programs,” said Patrick Raker, Senior Vice President of AAAE’s Training and Technology Services department. “The system is used by airports to train hundreds of thousands of industry workers, and I’m eager to see that trend continue as we develop the next generation of our training site.”

Airports that subscribe to ANTN Digicast have unlimited access to the service’s 300-plus training programs for all employees and tenants. Topics covered include operations, Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF), security, customer service, FAA-required recurrent training and much more. ANTN Digicast training is designed for airport employees as well as tenants, such as airline workers and subcontractors who work at an airport.

Digicast programming is accessible online via any web-enabled device. Through the website, airport administrators are able to assign training to their employees to ensure all training requirements are complete by the due date. The system tracks training on a per-user basis, allowing airports to demonstrate to regulators that their employees have completed required recurrent training.
