Training Special Edition – Professional Conversations

The COVID 19 pandemic has disrupted our lives in fundamental ways including having a direct impact on the way we train and certify people in the aviation industry. Traditional classroom style training was prohibited under the Level 5 and Level 4 Lockdown imposed by our Government to flatten the curve of COVID 19 infections.

The SACAA introduced a moratorium on the renewal of qualifications until the end of July in recognition of the fact that training and certification was impossible during the initial lockdown period.

Developments have been ongoing with the SACAA engaging with industry to enable a training and certification regime designed to work under the Level 3 Lockdown regime and provide a training and certification path for the renewal of all qualifications.




Complete your qualification online at your own pace on our eLearning Platform. This is the normal eLearning course presentation and students must have access to the Internet and a computer.

Aviation Security Awareness (General) and Dangerous Goods CAT 4 are available by eLearning, these are SACAA approved courses.

We have several other courses available by eLearning such as Dangerous Goods Awareness, (not SACAA approved), The Safe Transport of Lithium Batteries by Air, Safety in the Workplace, AVI (Transport of Live Animals).

Courses are presented in the form of a webinar with students signing into the course and taking part in the program as if they were in a classroom. The course is available live and in recorded form, interaction between the student and Instructor is facilitated through our eLearning Platform via Live Chat, Instant Message, and email.

The class is presented through Microsoft Teams and students can interact with the Instructor live during the course.
