MONTREAL, May 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Canadian Tactical Training Academy (CTTA) (Pink Sheets:CTTG):

The Canadian Tactical Training Academy's Training Facility in Montreal will be the site of the annual re-certification of more than 250 security officers who comprise the Airport Patrol and are assigned to protecting the Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and the Montreal Mirabel International Airport (YMX).

There are two certification programs, each of which is valid for a two year period. Participants are re-certified in each program on alternate years. Certificates are issued by CTTA to successful participants upon completion of the program.

The security officers underwent their initial training under the auspices of CTTA.

The fully equipped training facility includes equipment such as body shields, focus gloves, batons, handcuffs, and Body Opponent Bags or "BOBs" for realistic training.

The training facility is located near the Trudeau airport and is fully booked until mid-June.

All of CTTA's many courses can be conducted at the Montreal location except for live-ammunition firearms training which is given in the United States at a range used by US federal agencies.

International courses may be delivered at other locations around the world.

The mission of the Airport Patrol is to protect passengers, personnel and facilities against all threats to civil aviation at Montreal–Trudeau and Montreal–Mirabel airports. The patrol has approximately 250 members, divided into a number of specialized teams, including drugs and explosives detection and investigations.

The patrol's responsibilities include responding to emergencies, enforcing regulations, controlling traffic, detecting explosives and policing restricted areas.

The Montreal Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport is the third busiest airport in Canada and according to its website, handled almost 12 million passengers in 2010. It is one of eight Canadian airports with United States border preclearance and is one of the main gateways into Canada with 8 million of its passengers being on non-domestic flights, the highest proportion amongst Canada's airports during 2010. The Montreal Mirabel International Airport is the second largest airport in the world in terms of surface area.

The Canadian Tactical training Academy (CTTA) is an organization devoted to worldwide training of peace and law enforcement officers, as well as all other professionals involved in the fields of security, investigation, protection and the maintenance of order.

The Academy also provides tailored security and safety oriented civilian training at both the individual and corporate levels.
