ACI and ICAO virtually support tomorrow’s aviation leaders
In ACI and ICAO’s global management accreditation programme, support is given to the next generation of aviation leaders through a virtual classroom.
Airports Council International (ACI) World has announced its global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP) will deliver the programme in a virtual classroom format for the first time.
AMPAP aims to develop a new generation of airport leaders in all areas of the airport business and:
- Increase the professional knowledge and capability of airport management personnel worldwide
- Encourage the adherence to uniform standards and awareness of best practices at airports
- Promote the recognition of professional excellence in airport management
- Expand communication among airport executives globally to facilitate better knowledge sharing between airports.
Delivering this component of the course virtually provides an effective tool for airport management executives to concentrate on professional development in a safe environment.
“Close to 1,000 aviation professionals globally have graduated from the AMPAP programme; increasing the management skills of our airport professionals and improving their ability to deal with the normal challenges we face in our business,” ACI World Director General, Luis Felipe de Oliveira said. “Airports are key assets for the global economy recovery and will need creative and responsive leadership as they confront the new and unprecedented challenge of recovery from the impact and effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Global ACI-ICAO AMPAP is designed to foster the new generation of leaders by improving the knowledge of airport managers on best practices in the safe, secure and efficient movement of aircraft, passengers, baggage and cargo. Highly-skilled professionals provide the backbone of the industry; supporting job creation and sustainable economic development.
“The AMPAP gateway virtual course provides airport executives with a broad understanding of the global aviation ecosystem at a time when investing in its people has never been more important for the industry.”
