Duration: 4.5 days
Tuition: $2,750.00 USD
“Appropriate, immediate and coordinated actions in response to emergencies and disruptions can significantly mitigate the severity of their impacts. It is therefore critical that stakeholders involved in air transport operations have in place emergency response and contingency plans (ERP) to ensure a rapid response and swift restoration and return to operations. An ERP is a comprehensive, operational-level document outlining specific roles, set of actions and timeframes to respond to unexpected situations, disruptions or potential disruptions.”
