Walvis Bay Corridor Group

Earlier this month, the African Institutional Management Services (AIMS) announced that it received accreditation from the Namibia Civil Aviation Authority on 24 May 2019. According to AIMS Marketing and Business Development Manager, Ms. Natasja Gawanas, this now makes them a certified Aviation Training Organisation (ATO).

The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) attended the launch of the programme and learnt that AIMS will offer IATA Dangerous Goods Categories 1-12 at its Vocational Training Centre in Arandis. The training commences in August 2019 and has various options, ranging from 1 to 5-day training sessions. The course includes an assessment, which requires candidates to achieve an 80% pass mark in order to successfully complete the training course. The IATA Dangerous Goods certificate is valid for 2 years.
“Through these sessions, we are able to assist companies to stay abreast of the latest industry regulations and procedures”, says Ms Gawanas. The training offered ensures that those tasked with the handling of dangerous goods and cargo shipments at companies comply with international industry standards and equally prepares companies to provide detailed services to clients with knowledge and problem solving techniques.
Those motivated to apply for the training range from shippers, packers, staff of freight for-warders, operators and ground hand-ling agent staff, passenger handlers, flight crew members and security staff who are involved with the screening of passengers and crew and their baggage.
AIMS was established in 1998 and is registered with the Namibian Training Authority (NTA) and accredited with the Namibian Qualifications Authority (NQA).
