Salina Among Airports Recognized for Training Excellence

The Salina Regional Airport is among the 90 airports the American Association of Airport Executives has recognized with an ANTN Digicast Excellence in Airport Training award for training completed in calendar year 2013.

"Ongoing training is paramount for us," said Tim Rogers, A.A.E., executive director of the Salina Airport Authority.  "Staff has done an excellent job of meeting and exceeding regulatory standards."

The award levels are based on total training programs watched and total number of employees trained at each airport. Levels vary based on the airport's hub size.

"ANTN Digicast was created for airports of all sizes as a cost-effective, efficient way to help comply with mandated training requirements, and we're encouraged that so many airports have made it an integral part of their training programs," said Patrick Raker, senior vice president of AAAE's Training and Technology Services Department. "The fact that the system tracks training on a per-user basis provides concrete proof to regulators that employees have completed all of their recurrent training requirements."

Airports that subscribe to ANTN Digicast have unlimited access to the service's 300-plus training programs for all employees and tenants. Topics covered include operations, ARFF, security, customer service, FAA required recurrent training, and more. ANTN Digicast training is designed for airport employees, as well as tenants, such as airline workers and subcontractors who work at an airport.

Digicast programming is accessible online via a Web-enabled computer, and the system tracks training on a per-user basis, allowing airports to demonstrate to regulators that their employees have completed required recurrent training.
