Managers of airports of all sizes face a perennial dilemma: how to efficiently train operations personnel while simultaneously ensuring a safe and secure airport environment. TRB is hosting a webinar on Monday, September 13, 2021 from 1:00 to 2:30 PM Eastern that will focus on current training methods and programs to prepare new and existing airport operations staff.
