Airport Operations

Entry requirements

In order to complete this course successfully, you must have sufficient knowledge or experience to cope with the studies. Completion of the Foundation course will accomplish this - or you may have acquired sufficient knowledge through experience (typically three or more years in a relevant environment) or other studies. This can be assessed easily by completing an exemption assessment which is available on request. The results may indicate that you can enter the advanced course directly, need the complete Foundation course, or that some units of the Foundation course should be studied. In the latter case we will tailor the training to your specific needs.
