Namibia Airports Company recently sponsored a train-the-trainer course for five Nampol members of the Aviation Security Division, who attended a course in the United States of America from August 6 to 16 on all astrophysics security equipment.
Head of the Aviation Security Division at Nampol, E. Haiduwa expressed his gratitude towards NAC for the support and said all five Nampol members passed the course with flying colours.
“The objective of the training was to train Nampol members as trainers with a view to becoming instructors on all astrophysics equipment (such as x-ray security technology) at all eight NAC-owned and managed airports,” said Haiduwa.
CEO of NAC Tamer El-Kallawi advised that the safety and security of Namibia’s airports was the number one priority strategic area of focus of the airports company.
“This is enshrined in our mission, which states that we develop, manage and operate safe and secure airports on sound business principles with due consideration to the interest of our stakeholders, while our number one core value is also safety and security,” he said.
El-Kallawi also congratulated the five Nampol members on passing the course: “We look forward to learning from the Nampol members, as they impart their knowledge at Hosea Kutako International Airport, Ondangwa and Eros. We will look, listen and learn to ensure that all our customers – from passengers to ground personnel – are protected at all times.”
