SATS has been awarded International Air Transport Association (IATA) accreditation for Ramp Services training. It is the first firm worldwide to be accredited for ground operations training.

With this recognition, SATS is now an Authorized Training Center (ATC) with exclusive rights to train ground handlers in 10 countries regionally.

The newly accredited programme is scheduled to begin in March 2017. SATS will be the exclusive IATA training provider to ground handlers in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Brunei and Myanmar. It is also a non-exclusive training provider for India.
