In 2018, ICAO and the government of China created a training course for senior and middle managers of Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs). This course aimed to support civil aviation managers in developing the right skills to properly implement ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).
The course was targeted toward managers who oversee the direct implementation of ICAO SARPs and those who support these operations. It lasted five days and was available in English, French, and Spanish. Twenty-one states hosted it, and one hundred states participated.
