Relationship to Training Solutions International
Training Solutions International is an Affiliate Company created from and assigned to the C.A.A. Academy. As an Affiliate Company, it is a legally separate entity that functions with almost total autonomy, but still falls within the greater C.A.A. hierarchical structure. Administratively, Training Solutions International is assigned under the Academy and technically subordinate to it in the structure. However functionally, Training Solutions International provides the bulk of training services both inside and outside the Central Aid Agency, including curriculum management and the certification of C.A.A. and TSI Instructors. By policy, the Branch Director of the Academy is the same person as the Company Manager of Training Solutions International.
