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 and continuing education training using ANTN Digicast’s Web-based training system. The award levels are based on total training programs watched 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.

“Airports that earn Excellence in Airport Training awards demonstrate their commitment to improving operations, safety, and overall preparedness through advanced training,” said Joan Lowden, AAAE’s senior vice president of communications and general manager of AAAE’s Airport News and Training Network (ANTN) division that produces ANTN Digicast. “ANTN Digicast was created for airports of all sizes as a cost-effective, efficient way to help comply with federally mandated training needs and support an advanced training curriculum, and we’re encouraged that so many airports have made it an integral part of their training programs.”

Airports that subscribe to ANTN Digicast have unlimited access to the service’s 500-plus training programs for all employees and tenants. Topics covered range from operations, ARFF, security, customer service, FAA required recurrent training, and 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 computer, and the system tracks training on a per-user basis, allowing airports to demonstrate to regulators that their employees have completed required recurrent training.
