Westminster's aviation security training operations graded as 'Outstanding' in all areas audited by UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)



As part of the CAA's Aviation Security Quality Assurance Framework, aviation security training providers must regularly undergo audits and achieve pre-determined grades in order to be registered with the CAA, and only CAA registered training providers may deliver Department for Transport (DfT) Aviation Security Training.


In its recent audit by the CAA, Westminster was graded as 'Outstanding' in all areas audited, providing confidence to our customers of our exacting standards.


Commenting on the achievement, Westminster's Training and Compliance Director, Paul Morton, said:


"This is a truly 'outstanding' result from an outstanding team. I am extremely proud of the dedication and continuous commitment shown by our team in achieving this quality standard. It is a reflection of the professionalism that all Westminster staff continue to show and is a testament to our commitment to providing our colleagues and clients in the aviation industry with the full support they need to get through current restrictions and beyond."


Peter Fowler, Westminster's Group CEO, added:


"Whilst the current COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the aviation industry worldwide, aviation security and training will remain an important and vital element for air travel. As travel restrictions begin to be lifted, we believe our training services will once again be in demand around the world and I am proud of what Paul and the team have achieved.


"Training is an important growing revenue stream for Westminster. Building on the success of our training services and that of the strategic alliances we entered into in 2019 with the Gulf Aviation Academy ('GAA') in Bahrain and the Tunisian Academy for Civil Aviation Safety and Security Training ('AFSAC'), this latest achievement is yet another milestone in our growth trajectory and emphasises the quality of the training products we are offering globally."
