Concord Regional Airport has recently enhanced its safety training programs for employees and airfield tenants who have need to drive or walk on the airport tarmac.
Because of the numerous hazards on an airport and the desire to be proactive to minimize accidents, the airport has developed specific training programs that alert users to specific hazards, provide airport familiarization overview including specific rules, regulations, and airport proceedures, and also directs individuals to FAA developed training and regulations available on the internet . A knowledge based assessment has also been developed to ensure those users who take the training understand the materials presented.
The City of Concord utilizes North Carolina based Noverant Learning Management System to manage, distribute, and keep records of training. The advantages of the system allow for easy management of training, faster update, and paperless compliance documentation. For the end users, it allows them to access the training materials 24/7/365 from any secure internet connection without the expense and time of employees having to come directly to the airport to complete the training.
If you are a new business, airport contractor, or existing tenant at Concord Regional Airport and have not been provided access to the system, we may not have your email address on file. Please contact the airport administration office. Once verified, we can provide you a user name and password, and website link for each employee.
