Aviation Training Academy (ATA) announces the launch of their new online training program directed at FBOs, corporate flight departments, municipalities, fueling agents, line service technicians, and mechanics.

These new regulations, under the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) which were adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), mandate that employers must have their employees trained on the new GHS label elements and Safety Data Sheet format, which now includes thousands of flight department employees, by December 1, 2013. The course complies with and meets the requirements of the
new regulation.

“The course curriculum includes material on the new documents, formatting, labeling, signal words and pictograms of the GHS to effectively understand the system when these begin to arrive in their workplaces,” states Dave Ware with ATA. The cost of this online training is $89.95 and is available through ATA’s website

In addition to the other Hazardous Materials Awareness (HAZMAT) Training Online, courses offered by ATA directed toward airport operations include; Line Service Technician Certification; 14 CFR 139 Supervisor Certification; 14 CFR 139 Auditor’s Practical Checklist for Completing 14 CFR139 Inspection; FBO Preparation for the 14 CFR 139 Inspection, and Self Fueling Operations.
All courses meet the latest industry training standards for aviation support personnel involved in these roles, and Aviation Training Academy certification is provided at the successful completion of each course. “This training is both an affordable and convenient way to accomplish the mandated training given the limited window of time until year end,” stated DeborahAnn Cavalcante, partner in ATA.
