WFS training college scoops IATA accolade

Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) Airport College has been recognised as one of the world’s top 10 aviation training providers by IATA in its list of 2017 Premier Circle Members.
The Paris-based Airport College is one of only two training providers in Europe to be awarded Premier Circle status by IATA this year out of the network of 450 member institutes in over 90 countries that are authorised IATA training partners, including universities.  
WFS established its Airport College in 2000 to provide training for its own employees to meet mandatory aviation industry requirements.
The Airport College incorporates a simulated airport terminal boarding area in Orly to train students in passenger services as well as a facility to teach ULD handling at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. 
It provides IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) courses at WFS’ 12 stations in France, delivering training to approximately 11,000 people every year.
This includes WFS staff as well as employees of airlines, freight forwarders, shippers, packing companies and candidates registered with employment agencies.
