It is a time for making new year’s resolutions; is advancing your career on your list?

This has always been the best time of year to make plans. We have learned so many lessons as we navigated our way through the pandemic, but perhaps one of the biggest reminders, when so much came to a halt, was just how fast time passes.  We often talk about the things we want to do, but then another year goes by, and then another…

It’s great to make resolutions; they give us something to look forward to in a new year. The challenge with making them is when they are too open-ended that they are impossible to measure.

This year, look at your career and set some firm, measurable goals that you can actually track and achieve. No matter what aviation field you are in, there are hundreds of new skills you can learn that could benefit your career.

Are there competencies you want to master? Do you want to build your resume? Set your work goals for the year and start working towards them. You won’t regret it. If achieving your goals can enhance your work in your current job, your company might even be willing to pay for it.

In this rapidly changing world, there are many constants. Keeping the aviation industry safe and secure is not only one of our greatest priorities, but it is an enduring asset. One way we support this at ICAO is by helping aviation professionals around the world to develop their competencies.  Our training equips and empowers current and next-generation aviation professionals with the techniques and tools to thrive in today’s challenging aviation sector.

We are sharing ICAO’s comprehensive training schedule for 2023, below. We have also included links to our user-friendly,  integrated search platform that features ICAO’s portfolio of courses and higher-level educational programmes. These courses bring learners together from diverse backgrounds, facilitating relationship-building and collaboration across borders. Not only does this training help to improve skillsets, but these courses and programmes help participants connect with an international community of learners who are faced with similar challenges so that they can exchange experiences and best practices.

This portfolio provides diversified, innovative and high-quality training solutions on relevant key competencies through ICAO branding at a competitive pricing advantage, enabling greater global accessibility for States and their aviation professionals.

Make plans today so that a year from now you won’t be wishing you started today, you’ll have crossed this off your bucket list.
