Monday June 27, 2011 –  The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) is continuing to invest in enhancing security at the country’s two main air ports with the hosting of a three-day  Sub-Regional Aviation Security Essential Instructor Skills workshop.


The move is in keeping with international trends and standards.


Chief of Ports Police Kennedy Francis says the training of staff in the area of aviation security will result in significant benefits for Saint Lucia and the entire region.


“The sub-regional workshop on instructor skill in aviation security, is really designed to equip potential instructors and current instructors with new skills. The fact that we are honing the skills of staff in aviation security is a clear indication that our overall objective at SLASPA is to increase security.”


The workshop which is being held in collaboration with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, seeks to arm  participants with the fundamental skills needed to develop and deliver a unit of instruction.


“There are a number of ongoing initiatives in aviation security; on a daily basis, things are changing in aviation security as a number of new measures are being deployed at airports worldwide so at this particular time there is the need to always upgrade the skills of staff to bring them up to a required working level so that they can provide good service at the various airports.”


Following the completion of  the workshop today June 29th, the regional instructors are expected to return to their individual island states and design and deliver instructional techniques to the staff at the various airports.


The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA), says it will continue to invest in training staff in the area of security which is a critical component of its operations.
