This year we are bringing back the Airport 101 training, which is a 30 minutes session that provides an overview of taxi operations at the airport. This training IS NOT required, but is recommended. We will hold several sessions prior to in person ATPDR training (mentioned below) with a limit of 15 people. Please email email@example.com if you want a seat in one of the following sessions:

Our annual Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities (ATPDR) taxi driver training will be done virtually again in 2022. All drivers that have the ability to complete the training online are asked to do so.
If you are unable to complete it online, we will hold several in person sessions for Full Training with a limit of 15 people. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a seat in one of the following sessions:
- April 14th at 2:00 to 3:00 PM
- April 19th at 3:00 to 4:00 PM

IMPORTANT: Do not show up to any session without prior confirmation from the airport.
What is this training?
The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) requires all Federal transportation providers, terminal operators, and contractors be trained on how to assist persons with disabilities. The standards for this training are set out in the Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations (ATPDR).
This training would have been required upon your initial licensing with the Charlottetown Airport and must be updated annually by Full or Refresher Training.
How do I know what training I need – Full or Refresher?
Full Training is required upon initial licensing, every three years thereafter, or if you are inactive for a year or more at the airport. On years when Full Training isn’t required, Refresher Training is required.
To find out what training is required from you, please see the list below. Drivers are listed alphabetically by first name.
If you are required to complete Full Training:
You can access CTA’s training program through their website. The training consists of a comprehensive, 45-minute program with six modules. The on-line, self-guided training videos, entitled “Accessibility for All” can be viewed here:
Once you have reviewed the training videos, complete the “Accessibility for All” quiz. The quiz can be accessed here:
At the end of the quiz, please print the certificate of completion for your records and a hard copy to bring in for our records.
IMPORTANT: You must achieve a score of 80% or higher for the Charlottetown Airport to accept your certificate. The certificate will be printed with any score, so it is your responsibility to ensure you score 16/20 or higher before providing it to the airport. You can only attempt the quiz one time per 24 hour period per device.
If you are required to complete Refresher Training:
If you are only required to complete Refresher Training as per the 2022 Taxi Driver Training Required list, please review the training document below.
Once your review is complete, please sign the 2022 Confirmation of Completion of ATPDR Refresher Training form (linked below) and print a hard copy to bring in for our records.
To get your license and 2022/23 sticker:
Starting April 7th:
Ensure you have a hard copy to hand in for our records of either the certificate for Full Training (16/20 or higher to pass) or Confirmation of Completion of ATPDR Refresher Training form, depending on what you are required to completed as per the 2022 Taxi Driver Training Required list.
Stop into the Air Terminal Building and see the Commissionaires to hand in your documentation, fill out your license, and get your 2022/23 sticker. This will not be done if the correct training was not performed and a hard copy as per above is not provided.
