Emirates’ security division has received an extension to the accreditation of its security training by the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) following a recent audit of its programmes.

Transguard Education Academy, run by Emirates’ Group Security department, was the first institute to receive accreditation in December 2004.  Originally valid until April 2006, the accreditation has been extended for a period of two years following the audit.
The academy can use the GCAA logo on all its certificates, including the Diploma in Aviation Security Management, run in conjunction with Edith Cowan University of Western Australia.
Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Group Security, said: “This re-accreditation attests to the quality process that security training has undergone.  All training syllabi prior to submission for audit to GCAA were subjected to a rigorous audit by Edith Cowan University itself. Security and aviation professionals can be confident that our courses will meet the stringent security requirements for the way we live today.”
The GCAA has certified that the Transguard Education Academy programmes are in full compliance with requirements outlined in Annex 17 and Doc. 8973 of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), for safeguarding International Civil Aviation against acts of unlawful interference, as well as Civil Aviation Regulations Part VII of the UAE National Civil Aviation Security Programme.
Security and airline professionals can apply for courses at the Transguard Education Academy, including the 10-month course leading to the Diploma in Aviation Security Management, by contacting Shreemen Prabhakaran. on Tel: +9714 282 2360.
