In 2001, the UK Department for Transport (DfT) published a new training syllabus for staff at Known Consignor sites. Our STK course covers all modules of the Known Consignor syllabus, and is designed to ensure employees of Known Consignors’ who have access to known air cargo, meet the requirements of the DfT and understand their roles and responsibilities. Fully DfT accredited, the course provides up to date information, legislation and strategies to address today’s increasingly complex security challenges in the aviation industry.
To be compliant with EU 2015 / 1998* – which outlines detailed measures for the implementation of basic aviation security industry standards – Known Consignors are required to undertake more staff checks, training and implement tighter controls. Our STKC course focuses on threat recognition and response, best practices, and the legal / legislative requirements to help staff enhance their skills and knowledge in a wide range of relevant areas and to ensure they pass any checks undertaken.

Affordable, Convenient, High Quality Training
At Quadratica UK we are continuously looking for ways to provide our customers with the best functionality, in the most economic format. DfT training can be expensive, and the quality of instruction can vary from trainer to trainer. Our online training courses deliver high quality training, every time. Scheduling training for a large work force no longer requires the hire of training rooms or taking staff off the floor. Our courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so training can be scheduled around staff availability and convenience.
To keep our clients’ training overheads down, we have priced our courses by the unit – if only 2 people require training, our clients only pay for 2 units, whereas a certified instructor will charge the same amount whether they are training 2 or 20 people.
We provide training managers with the best possible tools to educate their security staff by continually developing groundbreaking technologies. Our products are designed with a strong focus on our customers’ ever evolving needs and the shifting landscapes of the security industry.
IMPORTANT EU REGULATIONS*
In accordance with EU regulation 2015/1998, the Department for Transport (DfT) states that security training cannot be delivered unless a background / employment check has been successfully completed. Therefore, as part of the assessment process for the STKC course, a responsible company representative must confirm that security checks have taken place.
It’s an offence to provide false information to access the STKC material. It’s also an infringement of the regulations if the Responsible Person is found to be falsifying their own credentials, or doesn’t take the course themselves.
