SACAAThe New Age reports that the SA Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) has ordered two training institutions, accused of not offering sufficient training to airport security trainees, to stop all training until an investigation has been completed.  

The SACAA on Tuesday said it took matters of safety and security very seriously and that it had launched an immediate investigation into the veracity of allegations made in news reports.  On Monday, media reports emerged that Reshebile Aviation and Security Services sent its staff for week-long training at Ntate Aviation and Security Training, but there was no instructor for them.  Instead, they were made to watch a few videos and also read a theory book.  The trainees are responsible for passengers’ luggage before it is loaded onto planes and checking for weapons and other contraband.  Upon receiving reports about the allegations, the SACAA immediately dispatched a team of inspectors to get evidence from the school.  Ntate Training is accredited by the SACAA, however, this is subject to training being conducted in-line with the regulations at all times.
