The A. B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, Guam (GIAA) is proud to announce the achievement of Airport Certified Employee A.C.E. certification bestowed on Airport Operations Supervisor Edward A.P. Muna II. Edward joins 8 other Airport employees, and is the second Operations division employee to receive this prestigious designation. A.C.E. designations have been previously bestowed on employees in Airport Police, Airfield Lighting, Terminal Management, and Operations divisions.
Training was held at the Portland International Airport from May 4 through 8 2009, and conducted by the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE). Curriculum was based on Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 14 and Federal Air Regulations (FAR) Part 139 – Airport Operations. The esteemed A.C.E. certification is attained only after passing examination of critical Operations procedures and knowledge and applicability of federal rules and guidelines.
“A.C.E. training is intense and focused on the specific discipline category, this one in Operations. Most impressive is that only 15% pass the first examinations. GIAA’s record of passing A.C.E. training has been consistent and we’re very proud that Edward passed on the first take. We value exceptional employee performance and invest to produce quality employees in this challenging aviation environment,” stated Carlos H. Salas, GIAA Executive Manager.
