RACA Training

I want to become a Regulated Air Cargo Agent


Air Cargo Security Awareness Training


The New Zealand Government requires that air cargo is to be security cleared before it can be loaded on an aircraft. These security measures place specific requirements on businesses that handle or make arrangements for the transport of air cargo. Under the Aviation Security Act 2007, businesses that security clear, handle or make arrangements for the transport of air cargo must be a Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA).

The below is a two-part online course designed to assist you in achieving the basic skills and knowledge needed to effectively carry out the air cargo security functions of a RACA and equip you with the basic training required to work in the Regulated Air Cargo environment. The course is self-paced, offered online and valid for three years. Once payment is made in full, you’ll receive your login details and can begin the course, which you have 90 days to complete.
