What people are saying about this course

This course is informative and should be promoted to all airports, especially airports who have reported high number of strikes.


I learnt much more about the wild life and the risks that wildlife mean to aviation, and how we as the airport management team could prevent these risks.


Completing this course will further enhance the execution of my duties as an Airside Officer responsible for bird/wildlife hazards control at Banjul Airport. It has increased my knowledge and understanding regarding wildlife control.
