The operating procedures and guidelines contained in this handbook and any appendices hereof are subject to changes by IATA from
time to time, in accordance with the terms of the ATC Accreditation Agreement entered into between IATA and each ATC. ATCs should
always act on the basis of any such information with reference to applicable local laws and regulations.

Each defined term used herein shall have the meaning ascribed to it in the ATC Accreditation Agreement, unless otherwise
expressly defined herein.


IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION 1-1
1. I NTRODUCTI ON
1.1 INTERNATIONAL AIR TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION (IATA)
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) was founded in 1945 and is the trade
association of more than 230 airlines, including the worlds largest. Flights by the Member airlines
comprise more than 93% of all international scheduled air traffic.
IATA is the successor to the International Air Traffic Association founded in the Hague in 1919
the year of the worlds first international scheduled air transport services. IATA is the prime
facilitator for inter-airline co-operation in promoting safe, reliable, secure and economical air
services for the benefit of the worlds consumers.
IATAs head office is in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) and its executive office is in Geneva
(Switzerland). IATA also has regional offices around the world. For a list of IATAs regional offices,
please refer to the IATA website at http://www.iata.org/about/offices.
1.2 IATA TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (ITDI)
The IATA Training and Development Institute, or ITDI, is a division of IATA and a leading source
of international training and professional development serving all sectors of the transportation
industry: airlines, airports, aviation security, air navigation services, cargo, civil aviation and travel &
tourism.
Drawing on the expertise of internationally recognized practitioners, including IATA and member
organization experts, ITDI develops and maintains an extensive portfolio of travel industry training
and professional development programs and courses leading to internationally recognized
certificates or diplomas.
The IATA diplomas and certificates guarantee high standards of training and have gained
worldwide recognition and acceptance as a quality product by the worlds airlines and industry
associations. These are important qualifications for anyone wishing to upgrade his/her professional
competence or start a career in the travel, cargo or aviation industry.
Among ITDIs training activities are three major distance learning programs: the IATA International
Travel and Tourism Training Program which is partly offered in partnership with the United
Federation of Travel Agents Association (UFTAA), the IATA International Cargo Training Program,
and the IATA International Aviation Training Program offered exclusively by IATA. Although these
training programs were originally designed for self-study students, they are delivered in hundreds
of classrooms worldwide through IATAs network of Authorized Training Centers (ATC).
1.3 IATA AUTHORIZED TRAINING CENTERS (ATC)
While the ability to study independently at home is for some a necessary condition for improving
their knowledge and skills, ITDI recognizes that independent study does not suit all students.
Partnerships are therefore an essential element of ITDIs strategy to help individuals around the
world develop their potential in key areas.
IATA Authorized Training Centers (ATC) are specialized training institutions that are authorized by
IATA to teach one or more of the IATA course(s). The ATC may provide Authorized Courses in
their classrooms. Authorization to teach these courses is granted based on demonstrated
instructional expertise in the courses of interest, as well as the institutions overall ability to provide
quality training. While ATCs recruit and train students for IATA programs, examinations are
organized by IATA in their country or region. ATCs are also able to distribute the specific IATA
courses for which they are authorized to self-study students within their Territory, provided they are
able to offer educational support to these students, should the need arise.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 1 INTRODUCTION 1-2
1.4 MINIMUM RECOMMENDED COMPETENCIES AND SKILLS FOR ATC
STUDENTS
In general, to successfully complete any of the above mentioned IATA training programs, it is
recommended that students first complete a secondary school diploma or its equivalent. A good
understanding of written English, world geography and basic mathematics is essential for
successful study of these courses.
Furthermore, the need to confirm that students meet stated program and course requirements
makes it necessary to carry out formal examinations.
1.5 IATA LOCAL COORDINATORS (LC)
Local coordinators (LC) are individuals contracted by IATA as local IATA representatives engaged
to help ITDI reach its students and carry out specific activities. LCs support ITDI distance learning
examinations and are responsible for organizing, administering and supervising the examinations
of all registered students with the help of exam invigilator, as needed. However, the LCs and/or
exam invigilators are not involved in the exam marking process or in issuing certificates and
diplomas. IATA is solely responsible to conduct exam marking and issue certificates and diplomas.





This symbol throughout the Handbook, represents particularities of the Aviation Training
Program and requires that you pay special attention to the instructions specific for the
Aviation Training Program.

2.5 ATC INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATIONS
Dangerous Goods Regulations Courses (DGR) and Management Courses Requiring
Technical Expertise
The candidate instructor(s) proposed by an ATC seeking authorization to teach an IATA
Dangerous Goods Regulations course (DGR) or an IATA management course requiring technical
expertise shall meet IATAs qualification requirements as established for each IATA Training
Program. The purpose of the instructors qualification requirement is to ensure that the quality of
the training offered to students is safeguarded, as it depends on two essential elements:
instructional effectiveness and subject matter expertise.
ITDI requires that specific information be provided for review and approval, along with the ATC
application, as proof of the assigned instructor qualifications on the following courses:

requirements for the above-mentioned courses.
2.6 ATC TRAINING STANDARDS
IATA recognizes that there are many excellent guidelines on instructional techniques available
around the world, and training institutions may select any format that meets their needs. In order to
be as objective as possible when evaluating instructor competencies, IATA uses the standards
developed by the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance and Instruction
(IBSTPI). These standards reflect proven instructional practices as they apply to training, validated
by professional practitioners and academics. The ATCs training services and the ATC instructors
must meet these standards.
Information on IBSTPI and their standards can be obtained at http://www.ibstpi.org
2.7 ATC LESSON PLANS
Upon request, IATA will provide the ATC, when available, with a sample lesson plan for its
Authorized Course(s). The ATC can either use IATAs sample lesson plan or supplement it with
teaching aids and instructional events to enhance learning, or create its own lesson plan.
Supplementary Teaching Aids are those instructional tools that complement the Training
Material for teaching purposes. These supplementary Teaching Aids will include reference books
such as atlases, brochures, timetables, Internet sites, videos, etc.
The Instructional Events are activities that will be used to foster learning and provide additional
practice for students.
The sample lesson plan provided by IATA will include the following:
each module number and title;
each module unit number and title;
the learning objectives per module;
the recommended classroom teaching time per unit, suited to the course content and skill
difficulty;
scheduled periodic classroom tests, prepared and administered by the instructor.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 2 BECOMING AN IATA ATC 2-4
All lessons plans (including Teaching Aids and Instructional Events) made by the ATC hereunder
do not have to be submitted to IATA for approval. However, the ATC Instructors lesson plan for
each IATA Authorized Course should at all times comply with the minimum number of
recommended hours and the complete syllabus of the IATA course, as established by IATA from
time to time.
The ATC shall make every effort to ensure that the information contained in any lesson plan
(including Teaching Aids and Instructional Events) is as accurate as possible. Notwithstanding any
other provision of the ATC Accreditation Agreement, the School agrees to fully indemnify, defend
and hold IATA, its directors, officers and employees harmless from and against all third party
claims, actions, demands, costs, losses or damages, whether direct, indirect or consequential, and
reasonable attorneys fees and expenses, arising out or in connection with any lesson plan

by December 1 of then current year. The self-assessment report template is available for download
from the ATC Resource Site.
IATA (or its representative) may audit the ATC premises, including authorized Branch(es),
instructors, Courses or teaching procedures upon reasonable written notice to the School and
during normal business hours.
The main purpose of the visit is to ensure that the ATC maintains the standards of instructional
quality implied by the authorization. The visit is also important to maintain a good working
relationship and personal contact with the ATC leading to more effective communication and
understanding of problems or concerns.
2.9 ATC STUDENT ENROLMENT REQUIREMENTS
Upon becoming an IATA Authorized Training Center, each ATC is required to meet a minimum
enrolment of thirty (30) students per full calendar year.
2.9.1 Minimum Requirement per Authorized Program
Should an ATC be authorized for more than one Authorized Program, the minimum requirement of
thirty (30) students can be summed up across all Authorized Programs, with a minimum of ten (10)
student enrolments required in each Authorized Program to retain that specific program
authorization.
2.9.2 Minimum Requirement per Authorized Course
Should an ATC have no student enrolment for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months in any of
the Authorized Courses, the authorization for the said Course(s) will be revoked.
2.9.3 Annual Minimum Requirement Applicable to Each ATC Location
The minimum requirement of thirty (30) student enrolments applies to each authorized ATC
location; i.e. thirty (30) student enrolments for the ATC head office and thirty (30) student
enrolments for each Authorized Branch (if applicable).

3.5 ATC ADVERTISING
IATA and its training programs have an excellent worldwide reputation. The IATA name and logo
are well known for the quality and professionalism of its services and products.
To assist the ATC in the promotion of the IATA training programs, an IATA ATC logo has been
created. The ATC shall use the IATA ATC logo in accordance with the ATC Accreditation
Agreement, the provisions below, and IATA policies, guidelines and technical specifications for
logo use and corporate brand.
The ATC is required to respect these guidelines and to report any fraudulent use of the IATA name
and the IATA ATC logo, by providing IATA with a copy of the promotional item in question. This
applies to both ATCs and non-ATCs. IATA requests, however, that the ATC refrain from entering
into any discussion with the non-complying third party without IATAs prior written consent at its
sole discretion.





IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 4 IATA ATC LOGO USAGE GUIDELINES 4-1
4. I ATA ATC LOGO USAGE GUI DELI NES
Since its establishment in 1945, IATA has been recognized worldwide as a global organisation
representing the air transportation industry. In order to maintain the reliability of the IATA
accreditation, it is essential to maintain the integrity of the official IATA ATC logo, which can be
accomplished only if the logo is used properly and unauthorised or inadvertent misuse avoided.
The following guidelines have been developed to demonstrate authorised use of the IATA ATC
logo. Electronic versions of the approved logo are available upon request. Please contact the
Manager Channel Partners Business Development for more information.
Below is the only admissible presentation of the logo.



The IATA ATC logo is the property of IATA and shall be used exclusively on promotional materials
developed for the IATA distance-learning courses. The IATA ATC logo does not infer or imply a
joint venture or any other form of partnership with IATA. IATA reserves the right to modify its rules
and restrictions of use of the IATA ATC logo at any time. The ATCs cannot bind IATA or its
partners in any manner whatsoever. The IATA ATC logo may not be used as part of a trade name
or company registration.
Please always make sure to use logos from the master files supplied to you. These masters must
never be altered in any way.
Please refer to Section 4 hereunder for incorrect uses of the logo.
4.1 FOR COLOUR OR BLACK & WHITE APPLICATIONS
The logo may only be reproduced in IATA blue, black or white. No other colour variations are
permitted. Every component of the logo must appear in the same colour: the logo may only appear
all in blue, all in white or all in black.
4.2 ALTERNATE PRESENTATIONS IN FORCED WHITE BACKGROUND
When the logo appears on a background that is cluttered or offers insufficient contrast, it may be
placed in a white frame to force a white background.
4.3 COLOUR
Blue is the official colour of the IATA ATC logo. The appropriate recipes are provided in Pantone,
CMYK and RGB.
4.4 INCORRECT LOGO USE
Illegal use of the IATA ATC logo will cause the ATC authorization to be withdrawn immediately. In
such cases, there will be no refund for the authorization or annual fees. Permission to use the IATA
ATC logo will automatically expire in the event that the authorization granted to the ATC is
terminated.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 4 IATA ATC LOGO USAGE GUIDELINES 4-2
Below are a few examples of incorrect uses of the logo, which must be avoided:
The logo may not appear on a cluttered background;
The positions of the various elements of the logo may never be altered;
The typography in the logo may never be altered in any way;
The logo may not appear on a background that results in insufficient or variable contrast;
Shadow effects may never be added to the logo;
The logo may never be used to create a repeat pattern;
The logo may never appear on a patterned background that impedes its legibility;
The logo may not be distorted in any way.
4.5 LOGO USAGE: IMPACT
Protection Space: The logo should always be surrounded by a protection space, which must be at
least the size of the letter A in the IATA word mark. This space must remain free of any graphic or
typographic elements.

Minimum size: To ensure legibility at all times, the width of the wingspan symbol within the logo
may not be less than 0.4 inches (10.16 mm) in print applications, and 29 pixels in web applications.
4.6 LOGO USAGE: PROPORTIONAL SIZING
In order to represent the appropriate relationship between the ATCs logo and the IATA ATC logo,
the following applies:
The IATA ATC logo should not be bigger than your ATC logo;
Ideally, the IATA ATC logo should occupy half the visual space of your ATC logo.
4.7 LOGO USAGE: INCORRECT SUBSTITUTIONS
The IATA ATC logo may NOT be substituted for any other logo in the IATA family. This includes
the IATA logo without the ATC qualifier, the former IATA logo with the rounded box and the IATA
dynamic sky and logo.
4.8 APPLICATIONS: PRINT MARKETING MATERIALS
The IATA ATC logo is designed to identify ATCs. IATA will provide all ATCs with examples of the
IATA ATC logo to be used in their advertising and marketing of the IATA Authorized Course(s).
In exclusive advertisements (i.e. ads for IATA Authorized courses only), the IATA ATC logo should
be used.
In non-exclusive advertisements (i.e. ads featuring IATA courses as well as other ATC products),
the IATA ATC logo may only be used if it is clear that the authorization pertains to the IATA-
approved courses and not to any other product/course offered by the ATC.
The Authorized Training Center ID Number must always be indicated in any exclusive or non-
exclusive advertisement for the IATA training program.
The IATA ATC logo may not appear on a product-oriented communication piece, nor may it be
placed next to a product logo.
To avoid confusion, the logo may not appear on training materials, training certification,
publications, conference materials or other materials related to services offered by IATA.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 4 IATA ATC LOGO USAGE GUIDELINES 4-3
On print communications involving another organization, the IATA ATC logo should be the same
size as the organizations logo or smaller, at the bottom left of the piece, at the same level as the
logo of the ATC signing the communication, in keeping with the size-proportion guidelines
discussed earlier.
Samples of all advertisements, forms, and brochures, promotional or print materials using the IATA
ATC logo must be submitted to IATA at least ten (10) working days prior to final print and
distribution, in accordance with the terms of the ATC Accreditation Agreement.
If uncertainty arises concerning the use of the IATA ATC logo, please submit the piece for review
to IATA Brand Management at infobranding@iata.org.
4.9 APPLICATIONS: CORPORATE STATIONERY
On ATC stationery pieces such as letterhead, fax cover sheets, press releases and business
cards, the IATA ATC logo should appear at the bottom left, aligned with the IATA ATC logo and
body copy, in keeping with the size-proportion guidelines discussed earlier. The IATA ATC logo
may not be used on letterhead as the predominant logo or in any way that might indicate a
relationship with IATA other than that of an ATC.
The IATA ATC logo may be placed on envelopes only if it appears in the back, in keeping with our
size-proportion guidelines.
4.10 APPLICATIONS: WEB COMMUNICATIONS
Use of the IATA ATC logo on the Internet must be restricted to ATC sections of your website.
When in use, the IATA ATC logo may appear at the bottom left of the page, at the same level as
the corporate logo signing the communication, in keeping with the size-proportion guidelines
specified earlier. The IATA ATC logo may not appear on a product-oriented web page, nor may it
be placed next to a product logo.
When using the IATA ATC logo on the Web, it is recommended to program it to link to the following
address: http://www.iata.org/Pages/default.aspx .

Upon receiving payment of ATC student enrolment/training kit fees and processing the student
enrolment, the enrolment validity period for each enrolled student begins from the next available
exam session for the prescribed period as indicated below. This period is the time during which a

The purpose of the enrolment validity period is to ensure that the Authorized Courses Training
Material remain current and relevant.
The enrolment validity period specific to each Authorized Program is as follows:
24 months for Travel & Tourism courses
18 months for Cargo courses
12 months for Dangerous Goods courses
18 months for Aviation courses
5.5 APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED WITH OR WITHOUT STUDENT NAMES
While the online ATC student enrolment form includes space to enter the names of the students for
which each kit is intended, the ATC may submit an application without student names, as long as
other information and full payment are included.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 5 ATC STUDENT ENROLMENT PROCESS 5-4
5.5.1 Applications received with student names
(a) Student names are recorded and a Client ID Number (Client Identification Number) and a kit
registration number are assigned to each student.
(b) The date of enrolment is recorded and the enrolment validity period begins from the next
available exam session.
(c) Kits are prepared for shipping. Each shipment of kits contains the ATC name, the order
number, student names, Client ID Numbers, the kit registration number of each kit, as well as
the Student Enrolment Letter for each student. (Please refer to section 5.7 below)
5.5.2 Applications received without student names
(a) The order is recorded and a Registration Number is assigned to each Course Training
Material/kit.
(b) The date of enrolment is recorded and the enrolment validity period begins from the next
available exam session.
(c) Kits are prepared for shipping. Each shipment of kits contains the ATC name, the order
number and the Kit Registration Number for each kit.
(d) Once the ATC has identified students to assign to these kits, the ATC provides IATA with the
names of the students and a corresponding kit registration number to indicate which kit has
been assigned to each student. The ATC must provide IATA with the student names and Kit
Registration Number in numerical order no later than the published exam registration
deadline.
(e) IATA enrols students upon receiving their names and a Client ID Number is assigned to each
student. A student enrolment letter in pdf format is issued by IATA for each student and sent to
the ATC by email.
(f) Please note that unless the ATC provides IATA with the names of the students assigned to kits
initially purchased without student names, those students will not receive student enrolment
letter and consequently will not be registered for an exam session.
Students must be reminded to keep and carefully store their student enrolment letter, as it contains
important information. (please refer to section 5.7 below)
The ATC is not permitted to submit payment on behalf of students for courses the ATC is not
authorized to teach. In such cases, students must apply as self-study students and complete the
individual online ATC student enrolment form, including their personal mailing address, and submit
their student enrolment form together with their payment information.
5.6 STUDENT ENROLMENT AND EXAM REGISTRATION DEADLINES
Information on student enrolment and exam registration deadlines for the IATA examinations in
each of the Training Programs is available on the IATA website at:
Travel & Tourism Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/ATC_registration.aspx
Cargo Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/ATC_registration.aspx
Aviation Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/ATC_registration.aspx
Please note that this information is updated on a yearly basis. Please refer to the IATA website for
current information.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 5 ATC STUDENT ENROLMENT PROCESS 5-5
5.7 STUDENT ENROLMENT LETTER
Once a student is enrolled, IATA issues a student enrolment letter that is then forwarded to the
ATC. The student enrolment letter states the enrolment validity period and the next available exam
session for which the student is automatically registered. For an example of a distance learning
enrolment letter, please refer to Annex 6.
It is recommended that the ATC keep a copy of their students enrolment letters as they contain
important information.
Note: For change of exam session, please refer to section 6.2 below
5.8 TRANSFER OF ENROLMENT
Requests for enrolment transfers (assigning a new student name to an existing client ID) only apply
to ATC-enrolled students. Student enrolment transfer requests must first be submitted by the ATC
to IATA for approval. The ATC can request a student transfer provided that:
1. The students enrolment validity period has not expired.
2. The enrolment has not been previously transferred.
3. The original student has not used any of his/her examination attempts, including No Show
record.
4. The enrolment transfer is for the same course in the same language.
5. The ATC has resolved any outstanding issue with the original student.
6. It is understood that the enrolment validity period will not be extended.
Enrolment transfers do not influence the enrolment validity period. The students enrolment validity
period will be based on the date at which the kit was initially purchased and not on the date of the
transfer. A request for enrolment transfer must be received and processed by IATA before
the exam registration deadline.
5.9 CHANGE OF ENROLMENT STATUS
Self-study students may change their status to an ATC student provided that they are accepted by
the ATC and that IATA is informed of the change. ATC students wishing to become self-study
students must directly resolve any outstanding issues concerning their status with the ATC in which
they were enrolled before the change can be applied. A request for change of enrolment status
can only be submitted by the ATC and must be received and processed by IATA before the
exam registration deadline.
Please note that the change of enrolment status only comes into effect on the students new
enrolment(s). Student status and contact information will remain the same until their
current enrolment expires.
5.10 CHANGE OF STUDENT NAME
Change of student name will be accepted upon presentation of official documentation to IATA; for
example, following marriage or change in religion. Notice must be submitted prior to an exam
session. If a change of name is requested at a later date, an administration fee will be charged.





IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 6 IATA EXAMINATIONS 6-1
6. I ATA EXAMI NATI ONS
6.1 ORGANIZATION OF EXAM SESSIONS
IATA, with the assistance of Local Coordinators, organizes exams worldwide several times a year.
For information on the role and function of the LC, please refer to section 1.5 above. For the
scheduled exam dates and exam registration deadlines of each Authorized Program, please refer
to the following links on IATAs website:
Travel & Tourism Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/travel-exams.aspx
Cargo Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/cargo_exams.aspx
Aviation Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/aviation_exam.aspx

IATA selects the week during which worldwide examinations will take place.
The Local Coordinator (LC) organizes examinations in his/her country or area and:
Determines the exact date and location of the examination within the worldwide exam week;
Advises IATA of the date of exams and location of examination center(s) one month before the
actual exam date; and
Issues and sends the students exam invitation letters to the ATC.
The ATC is responsible for ensuring that each of its students enrolled in IATA Authorized
Courses is provided with a copy of his/her exam invitation letters to be presented to the Local
Coordinator and/or exam invigilator on the day of the examination. The ATC must verify the
preliminary student list sent to them by the LC prior to the exam session and notify the LC
of any changes required (Please refer to section 6.2).
Examinations for all Authorized Courses must take place on the same day of the assigned
Authorized Program exam week at all locations per country in the LCs area of responsibility. If
the LC is unable to hold examinations on the same day because of space limitations, the LC must
inform ITDI at least one (1) month before the examination week.
6.2 CHANGE OF EXAM SESSION
All newly enrolled ATC students are automatically registered for the next available exam session,
as specified in their student enrolment letter.
All Travel & Tourism, Cargo and Aviation candidates who have failed the first exam attempt are
automatically registered to rewrite their examination at the next exam session, as specified in the
letter accompanying their exam results.
Preliminary Student List prior to each exam session
Approximately six (6) weeks before each exam session, the ATC will receive from the IATA Local
Coordinator a preliminary list of their students registered for the upcoming exam session. The ATC
must verify this preliminary list and advise the LC of any changes to the list by completing and
returning the (Student Name) additions & deletions template by the prescribed deadline as
specified by the LC.
For students enrolled in the Travel & Tourism or Cargo Training Program:
For any questions regarding the exam session, ATCs should contact the IATA exams team at
examstraining@iata.org.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 6 IATA EXAMINATIONS 6-2
For students enrolled in the Aviation Training Program:
For any questions regarding the exam session, ATCs should contact the IATA exams team in
Singapore at training.sin@iata.org.
6.3 CHANGE OF COUNTRY
An ATC enrolled student must advise IATA of a change of country before the exam registration
deadline. The student will be charged an administration fee by IATA, which must be paid before the
exam registration deadline. The ATC must provide the student with written authorization to change
country and provide IATA with a copy of such authorization. The ATC must ensure that the student
provides his/her new contact information to IATA.
6.4 EXAMINATION FORMAT
Examination papers are prepared and marked by IATA. The questions are similar to those
contained in the training materials. Each examination is either open or closed course book,
according to each Authorized Program, and may include appropriate exhibits as necessary. For
details on the examination format of each Training Program, please refer to the following links on
IATAs website:
Travel & Tourism Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/travel-exams.aspx
Cargo Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/cargo_exams.aspx
Aviation Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/aviation_exam.aspx
6.5 IMPORTANT EXAM NOTES
The examination pass rate of the respective ATC students shall be consistent with an
acceptable worldwide range of exam pass rates over a period of two (2) years, based on IATAs
statistical reports.
All examination papers must be written at the first attempt.
Students have a maximum of two (2) attempts to pass each examination paper within the
enrolment validity period.
At the second attempt, students may retake the examination paper(s), which they did not pass
either one or two papers.
If students fail the same examination twice, their enrolment is automatically cancelled.
At each exam location, examinations take place during one (1) full day, during which one (1)
exam paper is written per morning and afternoon sessions. Since courses with two (2) exam
papers will require both the morning and afternoon sessions, students enrolled in more than
one (1) course will be limited to one (1) course examination per session.
For the Aviation Training Program, course examinations consist of only one exam paper.
6.6 DAY OF THE EXAMINATION
To be admitted to the examination, the student will need to present the following to the Local
Coordinator and/or exam invigilator:
exam invitation letter (sent by the Local Coordinator to the ATC);
Client ID Number; and
An official identity card with photograph.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 6 IATA EXAMINATIONS 6-3
There will be no exceptions to this rule. The Local Coordinator and/or exam invigilators required to
verify each students eligibility and identity before she/he is allowed to sit the examination.
All formal examination materials (papers, answer sheets, etc.) will be provided. The students are
only allowed to take the following materials with them into the examination room:
Pens (students should plan to have two);
Ruler;
Language dictionary;
Silent non-programmable pocket calculator;
IATA training kit / textbooks and reference books per posted Open Course Book Exam
Guidelines / DGR Manual and Perishable Cargo Manual and any other publications pertaining
to specific courses as listed on the IATA website at:
Travel & Tourism Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/travel-exams.aspx
Cargo Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/cargo_exams.aspx
Aviation Training Program: http://www.iata.org/training/Pages/aviation_exam.aspx

Mobile phones, pagers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), pocket PCs are allowed but must
remain switched off at all times during the examination.
Please note that the Local Coordinator and/or exam invigilator cannot answer questions
concerning the examination.
All exam questions and answer booklets and accompanying documents must be returned to the
Local Coordinator and/or exam invigilator at the end of the exam session.
6.7 IMPORTANT MEASURES TO COUNTERACT CHEATING
Cheating mainly occurs when candidates can easily communicate with each other. Candidates,
therefore, must not:
leave the room unaccompanied during the examination;
take papers out of the examination room;
be left alone, even for a few minutes.
As stated above, all exam questions and answer booklets and accompanying documents
must be returned to the Local Coordinator and/or exam invigilator at the end of the exam
session. Blank pages, which are provided for note taking, can be transcribed with exam questions
and easily transmitted around the world, giving information on the content of the exam papers to
other candidates in locations where the exam is taking place later in the week.
If there is suspicion that a candidate(s) is cheating during the examination, the Local Coordinator
and/or exam invigilator is authorised to immediately remove the exam paper from the candidate(s)
and have the candidate(s) dismissed from the examination room. The candidate(s) will not be
permitted to write any further examinations that day and will receive an automatic fail grade for
the entire course, following receipt of the Local Coordinators and/or exam invigilators s official
report of the incident at IATA.
In the markers point of view, if there is suspicion of co-operation amongst candidates, or a
possibility that the answers or other help were given to the candidates, the examination session at
the center concerned will be put under investigation with the possibility of declaring the whole
examination session invalid.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook

SECTION 6 IATA EXAMINATIONS 6-4
6.8 EXAMINATION RESULTS
Student examination papers for the Authorized Courses are marked according to the following
grading system:
Student Student
Pass Distinction

Travel & Tourism (all courses except the below)) 60% 85%
GDS Fares and Ticketing 70% 85%
Cargo (Cargo Introductory / Air Cargo Rating) 60% 90%
DGR (DGR Initial / DGR Recurrent) 80% 90%
Aviation (all courses) 70% 90%
Final examination results will be sent to the ATC and Local Co-ordinator no later than ten (10)
weeks after the exam.
A personal letter with pass-fail-distinction results is addressed to each student and sent to the
ATC for distribution. Successful candidates receive their diploma or certificate with this letter.
IATA is responsible for preparing and marking all examinations;
Marked examination papers are not returned to students;
IATA regrets it cannot enter into correspondence with ATCs, or students, concerning individual
student examination results or any other details concerning the marks obtained.
All results are final. No exceptions can be made, regardless of the difference between
individual results and the required pass mark.
Should a student fail an examination the first time, the student will have a second chance to re-sit
the examination, provided this is done within the enrolment validity period. If the student is no
longer enrolled with the ATC, the student should include a private address on the exam voucher
before forwarding it to IATA.
6.9 EXAMINATION STATUS: NO-SHOW OR EXCUSED
Students who are registered for an examination and do not attend will be recorded as a No-Show.
They will automatically lose one examination attempt, unless a valid reason (medical, legal, or
professional) is presented to IATA ITDI with their request before the examination or no later than
a week after the examination. In the case where IATA accepts the reason, the students will be
recorded as Excused and will not lose an examination attempt. If the certificate/letter is in a
language other than English, French or Spanish, we kindly ask the LC to translate and sign it
before returning it to IATA. Retroactive requests will not be considered. The LC must receive a
medical certificate or official letter from the students employer in every case. It is at the discretion
of IATA to accept/reject the request.
The student enrolment period cannot be extended for students asking to be excused from an
examination. The student simply saves an examination attempt. In extreme cases, however,
and if explicitly requested, an extension may be allowed for one exam session only after
consulting IATA for approval.
No more than one (1) No-Show/Excused can be accepted during a students enrolment period.

IATA Authorized Training Center (ATC) Handbook
