Technical Co-operation Unit
ASSET’s Technical Co-operation Unit (TCU) is the main operational unit who provide technical services: consulting and auditing. The unit is staffed with specialist pilots, engineers, and academics.
The TCU works with industry, consulting, auditing, discussing and discovering issues that affect performance today, and potentially in the future. ASSET’s TCU audits clients—airlines, charter companies, and aerodromes—to measure their performance against international regulations and operating standards. But we don’t stop with the audit; we start with it and work with you to help you discover new ways to fly smarter, safer.
Our approach to consulting and auditing is cooperative; with you, we fashion sophisticated plans, new designs, tailored to your capacities and goals. We help you move beyond compliance toward elegance and excellence of operation and service, on the ground and in the air.
The TCU (Technical Co-operation Unit) works alongside our other operational units—to share resources, information and exchange ideas. We work with our partners, ICAO and leading research institutes to gather the latest knowledge and thinking, so we can use the learnings and experience of others to pass on to you.
This is our organisational structure.
The work of our TCU is not conducted in isolation. The team are required to document all projects in a written report. The report is to explain the complexities of each and every project undertaken, so that the learnings can be analysed by the researchers and where appropriate shared with the industry and used for learning material in advanced training programmes. The TCU feed the Institute operational data; they feed the delivery of up-to-date and relevant information to be used by researchers, teachers and other operational staff.
The Institute’s Training Delivery Unit (TDU) teach Diploma, and Certificate programs in aviation leadership and management, auditing, ICAO short courses and workshops and professional development training programs using intelligence from the TCU and global partners.
Our operational units feed each other, and the share with the industry, valuable data in a cycle of continuous improvement through information exchange.
The Institute’s Cooperation Research Unit (CRU) is deeply engaged in all aspects of the sector; independent; agile in thought; and oriented to the real and emergent needs of the sector and those who rely on it.
The Institute’s Course Development Unit (CDU) works with ICAO and industry, using intelligence from our research and technical teams and global partners and experts, to design and build competency-based educational programs.
The Institute’s Training Delivery Unit (TDU) teach Diploma, and Certificate programs in aviation leadership and management, auditing, ICAO short courses and workshops and professional development training programs.
The Institute’s Professional Development Unit (PDU) combine the learnings from all of our teams, and from partner Institutions and Universities, to deliver personalised continuous development programs for our people and the industry.
