Redline Endorsed as the UK’s ICAO Aviation Security Training Centre for Ninth Consecutive Year
Redline Assured Security, a leading provider of government-standard training and security solutions, has received continued endorsement as an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Aviation Security Training Centre (ASTC). This marks the ninth year that Redline’s training centre, the UK’s ASTC, located at Doncaster Sheffield Airport has been endorsed by ICAO since being officially recognised in 2011.
Redline is part of the Safety & Security division of Air Partner Plc, a global aviation services group providing aircraft charter and aviation safety & security solutions to industry, commerce, governments and private individuals, across civil and military organisations.
ASTC Doncaster is one of only 35 ASTC’s worldwide, supporting ICAO’s efforts to deliver comprehensive Aviation Security Training Packages and Workshops to its member states. The evaluation noted the Centre’s active contribution to aviation security capacity building, through vigorous efforts in the provision of security courses, particularly through the European and North Atlantic region, and commended Redline on an outstanding evaluation result.
‘We take a great deal of pride and satisfaction from our association with and membership of the ICAO ASTC network, fulfilling our responsibilities as an ASTC by providing Certified Instructors to assist with capacity building projects and the development of Training Packages,” said Craig Harrison, Managing Director of Redline. “We’re an active training centre here in the UK and internationally, last year alone we trained more than 4,750 delegates via Instructor led tuition and 37,000 via e-learning. We are proud to continue to provide industry-leading training and consistent support to our partners in the aviation industry during the Covid-19 recovery period.”
Paul Mason, Managing Director of Air Partner’s Safety & Security division, added: “The continued endorsement by ICAO is a confirmation of our commitment and hard work in our mission to help ensure aviation security. We have been supplying security solutions to the aviation sector for 14 years now, and we conduct auditing and quality assurance on behalf of both public and private sector organisations, as well as various government agencies. This unrivalled expertise has made it possible for us to extend and apply best practices from aviation security in other sectors too, such as Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), rail, major events and corporate establishments, which are adopting these gold standards as security challenges around the world are becoming ever more complex.”
