Introduction to Aviation Security (Air Freight) Course

Regulations require persons and organisations involved in the airfreight business to take precautions to ensure that anything of an explosive or incendiary nature or anything that could endanger or be used to endanger an aircraft can not be placed on an aircraft going on an international flight or a domestic flight.

The Modules offered by PB Driver Training are carried out by Bruce Wicks, his DfT approval through BWTTC can be found on The DfT website, following the strict guidelines laid down by The Department of Transport.

This course is in conjunction with BWTTC

Training can be delivered at our Training Centre in Pucklechurch, or at your premises providing there are adequate classroom facilities. All candidates must have a working command of the English Language.

To ensure that those who handle air cargo and those with specific responsibilities for its security understand the requirements, are aware of their responsibilities and know how to exercise them.
