NATA, CrewID Partner on Safety 1st Training Credentials

 - January 31, 2019, 12:21 AM

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) has signed an agreement with CrewID, that will integrate NATA’s Safety1st Training Program into CrewID’s global credentialing system. According to NATA, this integration will provide Safety1st participants online access to real-time eBadges that manage and verify their training credentials, status, and company position. In addition, Safety1st participants who have successfully completed their program training will be provided with a CrewID badge at no cost.

Until now, there has not been a solution that allowed executives, government officials, or others to verify an FBO employee's training, access, or employment status.

“Our members will benefit greatly from the ability to easily and quickly show their training certificates [and] qualifications at any location they access and work,” said NATA president Gary Dempsey. “Pilots and other crewmembers can easily challenge ground personnel and view applicable credentials by verifying their CrewID badge in real-time.”

“Our team is eager to provide verifiable credentials for NATA’s Safety1st participants, especially to those who do not have an identification system in place,” explained CrewID CEO Michael Sundheim. “Participants are also provided security awareness training, at no additional cost, as a way to ensure employees have access to industry best practices and do their part to keep our industry safe and secure.”

NATA is demonstrating the system this week at the NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference.
