Independent Consulting Limited has successfully provided the first training to the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) in Hong Kong. The training was provided to management and operational staff, from 30 May until 03 June 2011, at CAD premises.
The training was part of the preparation by CAD to implement Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) at Hong Kong International Airport.
