Assessing your Needs
Students learn how to examine their own operations in light of ICAO & EC Standards, local and national Security Plans and current Risk assessments in order to establish needs. Clear distinctions are made between Needs and Wants.
Creating and Managing Financial Instruments
Working in small groups, students are tasked with the actual creation of a Security Department Budget utilizing pro forma forms and worksheets created specifically for AVSEC Department needs. Facilitated by Staff, each group will present their final budget for class critique at the end of the day.

Spranza Incorporated, a US Civil Aviation Security Training & Consulting firm with more than a quarter century of field instructional experience, has teamed with the Air Transport Department, University of Zilina Slovakia, to create the National Civil Aviation Security Training Center. Located on the Zilina campus, the Center will commence operation with the spring 2007 academic quarter.
The Center has been carefully designed to present students with an intensive state-of-the-art, classroom experience, complemented by a web-based interactive Distance Learning component. Taking a “hands-on” approach, students learn by doing, and rapidly acquire the academic knowledge and technical skills necessary to meet current National and International Civil Aviation Security Standards and Practices.
In response to the recent EC forecasts for airline traffic growth within Central and Eastern Europe – placing Slovakia at a steady 6.6% and a total combined Regional increase of 26% over the coming decade, the Center was created to address a growing need for professionally trained and academically qualified personnel to perform security duties within the CEE. Cornerstone to the Center’s creation is the conviction in the importance of providing a safe and secure operating environment in which to facilitate investor confidence and airline operational growth.
Under the direction of Dr. Antonin Kazda and Dr. Branislav Kandera, the Center also offers a variety of off-campus professional consulting services to: air operators, airports and Civil Aviation Authorities throughout the Region in the areas of regulatory compliance, security systems design and management and preparation of AVSEC documentation.
