ACI World launches first online certificate in Smart Security

Posted 25 January 2019 · Add Comment

Airports Council International (ACI) World has launched the first ACI Certificate in Smart Security which will introduce participants to the core concepts of this globally-established programme.

 

The certificate is offered by ACI World’s Global Training division and forms a new component of the Smart Security programme which assists airports and screening authorities in adopting innovative solutions that strengthen security procedures, increase operational efficiency, and improve the passenger experience.

At the end of last year, ACI World presented a Vision for Aviation Security at Airports to 700 international aviation security professionals at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Global Aviation Security Symposium in Montreal.

As part of its ongoing contribution towards the ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan, and ACI’s commitment to take a leading role on the Smart Security programme, the course is designed to help airports deliver positive changes in the effectiveness, efficiency and customer experience of primary passenger screening checkpoints. This builds on existing guidance material to support priority areas, such as capacity building.

“With growing passenger numbers, airports simply cannot keep creating more space or adding staff to accommodate the growing demand at the checkpoint,” Angela Gittens, director general, ACI World said. “We need to find ways of being smarter about security and recognise that there is not one solution for all airports.

“ACI is uniquely positioned to guide airports and aviation stakeholders on innovative and integrated solutions that are in line with regulatory requirements and are tailored to the unique conditions and facilities of the airport. The Smart Security initiative has been successful in piloting, monitoring and drawing lessons from various new initiatives that have been implemented at passenger checkpoints around the world.” 

This online course is designed for airport security managers, supervisors and those with security personnel, including service providers with airport security responsibilities. 

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to better understand the benefits and challenges of introducing Smart Security concepts, recognise the key issues to be considered when deploying Smart Security solutions in their airport and know how to develop a business case justifying security checkpoint projects or investments.
