CAAi to train through Aviation Skills Retention Platform

CAA International (CAAi), the technical cooperation and training arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), has been appointed as a training provider under the UK Department for Transport’s (DfT) Aviation Skills Retention Platform (ASRP).

The ASRP platform launched in February 2021 to support skills retention within the UK aviation industry.

It is designed to help individuals showcase their experience and develop their expertise while helping businesses find the skills they need – Aiding redeployment and recruitment, skills retention and development activities across the aviation sector.

Aviation professionals currently unemployed who worked within the UK aviation sector before the pandemic will be eligible for enrolment, with course placements funded by the DfT. CAAi is offering 16 virtual and e-Learning course titles, covering multiple areas of aviation regulation, oversight and compliance, including safety risk management, air law, just culture and industry recovery.

Sophie Jones, head of operations and training at CAAi, commented: “COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on UK aviation, that has sadly led to many colleagues from across the sector out of work. As a social enterprise, it was important for us to help as many people as possible get back into work. We are delighted to be part of the Government’s Aviation Skills Retention Programme. By offering our courses via ASRP, we hope to help aviation professionals develop valuable skills to support their efforts for redeployment and recruitment.”
