As part of an overall learning and development strategy, organizations are increasingly looking at accreditation programmes as means to assure that their resources acquire and demonstrate the competencies demanded to meet current and future requirements of their industry.
In developing these accreditation programs, learning and development institutions not only develop the necessary tools and tests to ensure that graduates demonstrate the necessary level of proficiency, but also develop the appropriate quality management mechanisms to continually improve their programmes in order to meet accreditation standards.
Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP)
From its experience in administering the Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP) which leads to the International Airport Professional (IAP) designation, ASI has developed a model based on lessons learned to assist organizations in developing a world-class international professional accreditation programme.
The Aviation Strategies International division, ASI Institute (ASI-I), is the officially designated administrator of the Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP) which leads to the International Airport Professional (IAP) designation.
AMPAP is a strategic initiative born from a partnership between ACI and ICAO in March 2007. In recognizing the challenges and complexity that constitute airport management, AMPAP seeks to develop a new generation of airport leaders in all functional areas of the airport business and promote the adherence to the highest professional standards, effective sharing of best managerial practices, all in a cross-cultural, highly interactive learning environment.
AMPAP is universally available to airport executives and management personnel, and on successful completion, provides its candidates with the opportunity to broaden their career horizons as they earn the ACI-ICAO International Airport Professional (IAP) designation. The IAP has quickly earned a reputation as a hallmark of excellence among the global airport professional community.
World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS)
The World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) approached ASI for assistance in further implementing its professional accreditation programme in six specific areas: provision of strategic advisory services, coaching, learning, development of documentation, processes and procedures, orientation workshops and development of e-learning capability.
AP II Airport Management Excellence Program (AMEP)
PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero), which is the airport operator for Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta and a dozen other airports in Western Indonesia, requested ASI-I’s assistance to develop and deliver, in cooperation with the AP II Training Department, what has become the flagship AP II Airport Management Excellence Program (AMEP).
The AMEP has been designed as a competency-building undertaking, teaching managers how to implement tools and techniques instead of only being aware of best practices. The performance criteria for AMEP is to make a practical difference in significantly improving the expertise of the program participants, in terms of knowledge and skills (in direct support AP II executive development and succession planning corporate strategy established by the Human Resources Directorate).
CAM Advanced Airport Management Program (CAAMP)
Macau International Airport Co. Ltd. (CAM) approached ASI-I to add a building block to the Human Capital competency development strategies already established by CAM, its airport operator, ADA and other operators at Macau International Airport. The CAM Advanced Airport Management Program (CAAMP) was designed, developed and delivered by ASI-I. The program was customized to respond to the specific MIA business environment and focus directly on the priorities of the enterprise.
AOT Advanced Airport Management Program (AAMP)
Airports of Thailand PCL, which operates the six main airports of Thailand, retained the services of ASI-I to co-design, develop and deliver its AOT Advanced Airport Management Program (AAMP) providing participants with practical know-how to be implemented in the existing AOT context in order to achieve sustainable enterprise-wide performance improvements, rather than only making them aware of the existence of such practices.
