IATA Cargo Introductory - classroom

Essential information

Note: IATA has changed its testing system since 2020. More information in description & dates.

Introductory course for transport and operations employees involved in international cargo air-transport. 

Since this year, IATA has changed the system of examining all students to online testing (OERS - Online Exams with Remote Supervision). The form of the so-called paper tests, as it has taken place so far according to the IATA decision, is no longer possible in CATC. Each participant pays for the online exam himself, according to the current IATA price list. For our clients, this means that they will be able to continue attending our preparatory courses, but they must arrange the exam themselves through their account on the IATA Customer Portal. You can find the link to log in to the Customer Portal here: https://portal.iata.org/s/login/?language=en_US.

If you are not yet registered on the Customer Portal, we recommend that you first create an account and then book an exam date.IATA ONLINE EXAMS- how to sign in
