Introduction to TP312 (5th Edition)

This is an introductory training course for TP312, 5th Edition, adapted more particularly to airports classified AGN 1 to AGN III b). In other words, certain elements that would only be found in airports IV and above, will not be studied in depth.

This training lasts approximately 8 hours, but can vary up to 12 hours, depending on the level of experience of the participants.

This is a lecture-type course, since the training is based on regulations, but the training is supported by several examples and situations in order to maintain a certain level of dynamism and attention from the team. share of participants.
