Who are we
IFMA (Aviation Professions Training Institute), a subsidiary of Groupe Europe Handling (GEH), has been playing a key role in professional training in the aviation sector for almost 20 years. For the 7th consecutive year, it is among the TOP 10 schools in the world accredited by IATA.
As a partner located close to Roissy Charles De Gaulle and Orly airports, but also present throughout the world, IFMA has developed a training range for both its partners and customers and for the Group’s employees. IFMA brings all its experience and expertise to bear in staff training.
IFMA offers flexible training solutions in the classroom or in the company to meet all budgets and needs. Our unique industry insight guarantees that our diplomas and courses are effective.
Vocational training but also training in regulatory compliance, which is essential to the aviation business - training in dangerous goods, safety and security training – is provided by teams of experienced instructors, qualified by the French Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) or by IATA. IFMA also offers coaching and practice sessions for all of these training areas.
In addition to its training classrooms for the theory work, IFMA also has direct airside apron access so that trainees can carry out practical training directly on the aircraft.
Classwork, workshops and ramp area exercises are the guarantee of successful safety and security training, the top priority of the IFMA training institute.
IFMA is your key to safe and compliant airport operations.
Accreditations, approvals and certifications
Wherever you are, we come to you.
To provide you with efficient and high-quality training, IFMA can call on many assets.
Training and educating means communicating. The IFMA trainers are all highly experienced. With an airline or airport assistance background and extensive experience, they work on a day-to-day basis in contact with operations, thus ensuring that they remain abreast of the latest developments in their field and guaranteeing high quality training.
A network of partners also allows us to diversify and expand our offer to meet your needs.
In the easily accessed IFMA premises , you are never far from an aircraft. The training centre is located at the very heart of the Paris Charles de Gaulle and Orly airport areas, a proximity which means that theory and practice can be combined. Our membership of the Groupe Europe Handling gives us access to apron equipment and aircraft for truly hands-on training.
Our Development Office coordinates with our Group and with the aviation authorities enabling us to stay abreast of the latest regulatory and technical developments in global air transport. Our training is therefore up- to-date at all times!
IFMA staff provide you with personalised follow-up, to inform and assist you and offer you the best solutions, from the first contact until the end of training, with the issue of certificates of training, diplomas, conventions and so on.
