ACI has done a masterful job in presenting this Runway Safety Management course. The course was very enlightening, and was presented in an easy to follow format. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in familiarizing themselves with Runway Safety Management. I truly enjoyed the learning experience.

Well tailored and comprehensive course. Good

The course was well put together, the way it is structured it allowed me to pace myself.

I am about twenty years in the aviation business, but still this training was very helpful and meaningful.
