This refresher course is designed for in-house trainers of PRM assistance agents who provide direct support to PRMs on daily basis. The course provides all necessary updated knowledge and understanding to ensure that, attendees are better able to understand and meet the needs and requirements of those passengers who require special assistance when they travel by air. The task of the trainer is highly important within your company!
The content has been written by our trainers drawing on their own personal experiences and includes factual accounts taken from the airport passenger environment. The content is continuously updated to stay in line with new developments and ideas.
This course is not only about the legal know-how. The most important subject is to understand the needs of a passenger and ability to create trustful communication in between an agent and a passenger. We will show and lead you to the conclusion – professional and honest communication can resolve almost any complicated situation.



To keep the mindset of the staff so as to create an atmosphere for passengers regardless of condition or ability where both the staff and an airport come together to become a truly inclusive and safe environment.
