Resource Group launches new online Airside Safety course
Leading EASA approved training organisation, Resource Group, has announced the launch of a new, modular Airside Safety training course to complement their existing online training portfolio.

The course will support clients in meeting the Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014 in which the aerodrome operator is to establish and implement a training programme for personnel involved in the operation, maintenance and management of an aerodrome.

Safety is the most important factor in any aviation operational activity which is why not only EASA but also ICAO state that an airport operator should ensure that all operational personnel are trained and competent to operate in those safety-critical areas. The new course will provide the background, awareness and details of hazards that can be found in the airside area. Modules include:

  • Safety & security
  • Airside hazards
  • Driving airside
  • Adverse weather
  • Emergencies
  • An overview of airside safety rules.

Ian Fitzpatrick, Managing Director of Resource Group Training Solutions Division said: ďAs an industry embedded training provider we are well aware of the importance of airside safety to the industry. We also recognise the operational challenges faced by our clients in releasing mobile and shift based workers to attend classroom based training. For these reasons we have leveraged our existing online training capabilities and significant track record in Air Traffic and Aviation Technical training to design a training programme to meet the needs of our clients from a position of understanding.

The airside area of an airport is a busy and dynamic working environment that requires knowledge, skill and competence. Whilst airside hazards are always present, our new airside safety course will provide students with an understanding of what these hazards are and a knowledge of the rules that are required to minimise their impact."
