ADVANCED INSTALLS NEW TRAINING FACILITIES TO INCREASE INTERACTION AND PROVIDE ENGAGING LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WITHIN THE CANADIAN AIR TRANSPORT SECURITY AUTHORITY

ABOUT CANADIAN AIR TRANSPORT SECURITY AUTHORITY

The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) was created in 2002 as a Crown corporation governed by a Board of Directors with expertise in aviation, transportation, security and intelligence. CATSA plays an important role in ensuring the safety and security of air travellers. Operating at arms-length under the regulatory body of Transport Canada, CATSA reports to The Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.

THE OPPORTUNITY

CATSA was looking for an innovative AV solutions partner to upgrade the existing systems within their training rooms and create a more immersive and collaborative working environment for staff. They wanted an AV partner with extensive experience and knowledge in the unique audiovisual requirements of training facilities, as well as a Company with government installation experience.

THE ADVANCED SOLUTION

For the design and large installation of AV solutions in their training rooms, CATSA turned to Advanced, drawn not only by our reputation within the industry as leading AV experts, but also because of  our extensive experience and success working with government agencies and departments.

Advanced installed SMART interactive whiteboards in each training room to promote interaction between trainers and trainees. Since these whiteboards easily and effectively interact with applications, files and each other, the new system allowed trainers to share information with the entire class and allowed for complete participation and collaboration during training sessions. To ensure ongoing success with the new SMART solution, Advanced provided initial SMARTBoard training, as well as ongoing support for new staff and refresher courses for existing staff.
