The partnership, signed during Airspace World 2023, sees CANSO and Infina agree to deliver cost-effective technical and management micro-learning and mixed media courses, virtually to the global aviation community. In a key development in the programme, the first courses are now available through the CANSO/Infina ANSP Learning Portal.

The courses are available to ANSPs and their employees via an annual membership subscription which gives full access to all the microlearning courses via a unique key name. Quarterly launches of new courses are scheduled for deployment to add to the ever-growing current catalogue of courses.

Sue Meeks, President, Infina, said: “This new partnership provides cost-effective, computer-based learning that supports global ANSPs in achieving local and regional aviation safety requirements. Our media content library offers key air navigation topics that meet ICAO and industry standards to the benefit of CANSO member countries and stakeholders across the globe.”

The courses available cover the widest range of Air Traffic Management related topics, including Human Factors, Emergencies, and Voluntary Reporting, while an ATCO Technical Series currently offers a Pilot’s Point of View on the issues of turbulence and birds activity.

Courses can be accessed through a number of platforms, mobile devices and desktop computers, and used in different study formats. They have been developed using safety data and with the support of experienced aviation safety and air navigation experts, who share their experiences and lessons learned throughout each course.

Simon Hocquard, Director General, CANSO, added: “I am thrilled to see this partnership between CANSO and Infina come to fruition with the launch of the ANSP Learning Portal so quickly. These data driven, expertly curated and developed courses will significantly help to improve safety and air traffic management practices around the world. They will be of particular use to those ANSPs who may not have large or easily accessible training resources of their own, and I highly recommend ATM training managers and anyone else who may be interested take a look at the portal to find out more.”
