Airports Council International (ACI) World has launched a new certificate for its Smart Security program. The certificate will introduce participants to the core concepts of this globally established program, which is led by ACI and looks to improve passenger and cabin baggage screening at airports worldwide.
The online course, offered by ACI World’s Global Training division, is designed for airport security managers, supervisors and those with security personnel, including service providers with airport security responsibilities. Upon completion, participants will be able to better understand the benefits and challenges of introducing Smart Security concepts.
As part of its ongoing contribution toward the ICAO Global Aviation Security Plan, and ACI’s commitment to take a leading role on the Smart Security program, 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.
Angela Gittens, director general, ACI World, said: “We need to find ways of being smarter about security and recognize 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.”
