Isavia has extensive and ambitious training programmes in place. The training of the largest groups, such as aviation security staff, airport personnel and air traffic controllers, follows programmes approved by the Icelandic Transport Authority. Our airport operations and air navigation services are governed by special laws and regulations. Regular training and retraining are part of our staff’s day-to-day activities.

A distinctive feature of our training programmes is that most of our employees receive their basic training from Isavia, with staff members taking on the role of instructors. These instructors also receive special training to that end.

  • Our instruction methods are continuously developing, with information technology used extensively to impart information.
  • We offer a wide range of training courses every year for our staff’s professional and personal development.
  • Recent years have seen growing use of a mixed instruction approach, with academic training provided through our Training Web and practical hands-on training provided in the workplace.
