NAIROBI, KENYA: Kenya Airways Pride Centre, a training facility run by the national carrier, has been granted a new global certification by the International Air Transport Association.

The new certification from the association designates the centre as an IATA Approved Training School, allowing it to deliver endorsed training programmes in the field of Dangerous Goods Regulations to shippers, freight forwarders, airlines and governments.

This is the third certification that KQ Pride Centre has received from IATA, making it the only centre globally to have attained all three IATA certifications.

Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Titus Naikuni, said that the conferment of the certification was an important recognition of the centre’s overall ability to provide quality training that meets strict criteria as set out by IATA, leading industry experts and   member airlines.

“This is a huge endorsement of our efforts to deliver quality training that meets international aviation standards and recognition of KQ Pride Centre as a global training facility of excellence. We welcome individuals, organizations, airlines and governments to take advantage of our expertise to build their own competencies,” added Naikuni.

In 2011, the institution was certified by IATA as an Approved Training Centre to offer IATA Training Programmes in the fields of aviation, travel and tourism, cargo and dangerous goods regulations. The centre also holds the Regional Training Partners certification that allows it to offer a selection of IATA classroom courses and diploma programmes delivered by IATA instructors with IATA course material, allowing participants to enjoy a similar learning experience to that of any IATA Training Center in the world.
