Timothy van Langeveld and Steven van Kanten, Consultant, VLK Aerospace, AAT, April 2013
"What I liked about the course was that it was taught thoroughly and comprehensively. One important aspect which was set out in detail is the difference in law from a company’s point of view in contrast to an authority’s perspective. There was room for different opinions and good discussions. In summary it can be said, that it gave a lot of insight into management systems in aviation and it leads to an overall better understanding of aviation."
Heidi Niemimuukko, Director, Trafi, IMST, April 2013
"The IAT course was held in a practically relevant way and was therefore very effective. The course is well designed not to stick to theory only but with a lot of practical problems to test the mind. It is advantageous in two ways, on the one hand it helps you as an auditee to prepare for IOSA and on the other hand it trains you to be a better auditor if that opportunity arrives."
Clyde Noronha, OPS Quality Auditor, Qatar Airways, IAT Frankfurt, March 2013
