Hactl has become the first cargo terminal operator in Hong Kong to achieve IATA’s new Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA) Center Certification. Having received both CBTA Corporate and CBTA Provider accreditations, Hactl is certified to continue providing DGR training to employees, as well external clients.
Says Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo: “The new IATA CBTA accreditation aligns with ICAO’s revised policy on training for the carriage of dangerous goods by air, providing a more meaningful format for future DGR training.
“We are delighted that Hactl has become an early adopter of the new CBTA training format, this achievement is testament to their commitment to provide high quality and effective training to their workforce. We are very pleased to confirm that they are Hong Kong’s first handler to achieve full compliance.”
Adds Hactl Chief Executive Wilson Kwong: “We are proud to receive this confirmation of Hactl’s new certification, and that we are the first cargo terminal operator in Hong Kong to comply with the new standard.
“While our comprehensive knowledge, experience and resources in DGR training gave us an excellent foundation, it has been necessary for us to further enrich some aspects of our training programmes in order to meet CBTA’s more precise and comprehensive definitions of the various Dangerous Goods job functions.”
