CrewID integrates NATA Safety1st training programme
CrewID is not just a photo identification card, it’s a system for real-time verification of employment status, training credentials and access. It is now hosting Safety1st data for participants in NATA's training programme.

An agreement has been made between the National Air Transportation Association (NATA) and CrewID to integrate NATA's Safety1st training programme into CrewID's global credentialing system. This integration will provide Safety1st participants online access to real-time eBadges that manage and verify their Safety1st training credentials, status and company position. Additionally, participants who have successfully completed their Safety1st training will be provided with a CrewID badge at no cost.

NATA's Safety 1st training programme is focused on providing standardised training and support for personnel within the general aviation industry, including line services technicians, FBO managers and customer service representatives. Until now, there has not been a solution that allowed executives, government officials or others to verify the training, access or employment status of an employee. NATA president Gary Dempsey says: “The decision to integrate with CrewID makes plain sense. Our members will benefit greatly from the ability to easily and quickly show their training certificates and qualifications at any location they access and work.” Pilots and other crewmembers can easily challenge ground personnel and view applicable credentials by verifying their CrewID badge in real-time.

CrewID chief executive officer Michael Sundheim adds: “This is an exciting time for advocates of security, safety and training. Our team is eager to provide verifiable credentials for NATA's Safety1st participants, especially to those who do not have an identification system in place. Participants are also provided security awareness training, at no additional cost, as a way to ensure employees have access to industry best practices and do their part to keep our industry safe and secure.”
