Butterfly Training Receive First European IATA CBTA Center Excellence Accreditation

This week Dublin based Butterfly Training has been certified as a Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) Center of Excellence by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Butterfly Training has been offering Aviation Security solutions in Ireland since 2012. From the 1st December 2017, it became a legal requirement that aviation security training is only delivered by an Approved Security Training Organisation (ASTO) in compliance with the Irish National Civil Aviation Security Program (NCASP).

Butterfly Training serves a number of key markets in the aviation industry from their regional offices in Dublin, Paris, Madrid, and Florida. They hold approvals from local civil aviation authorities across Europe for the delivery of mandatory training materials such as Aviation Security, Airside Safety, Dangerous Goods Regulations as well as global certifications from IATA and the FAA in the U.S.

Olivier David, CEO of Butterfly Training said: “Another new beginning at Butterfly Training. This CBTA Center of Excellence certification opens up a new era in Dangerous Goods training and enables Butterfly Training to offer high-quality, effective, internationally recognised CBTA training and compliance solutions to both our existing network and new customers. This would have never been possible without the hard work of our dedicated DGR, pedagogical experts and trust of our customers since 2005.”
