All certification and training records are securely maintained on Vantage POB’s platform with access authorised for employers and industry-approved training providers. The software requires that all passengers must be registered on Vantage POB before they are able to board flights. Prior to boarding a flight, all medical certification, survival training, travel history and qualifications will be checked. Those passengers that don’t hold adequate and up-to-date certification will be prohibited from traveling.
