Students in the emirate with a penchant for aviation jobs will be able to enroll in a training course in September. The two-year course has been endorsed by the UAE’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and approved by the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority GCAA. Vision Concept Aviation Training Institute (VCATI), set up in Dubai in 2013 as an independent aircraft maintenance training and examination organisation, is launching the education programme for students in September 2017. The first programme to be delivered to students is an internationally recognised licence for Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs). Industry leader Boeing has projected a demand for 269,000 aircraft engineers between 2016 and 2035, based on aircraft deliveries. VCATI has established partners in the industry so students will benefit from on-the-job training and job opportunities. Since GCAA is compliant with European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) regulations, job opportunities extend to 135 Easa compliant countries located on every continent across the world. VCATI’s partnership with leading aviation industry companies like Air Arabia and SR Technics the Swiss technical solutions provider for airlines, creates on-the-job training and job opportunities for students as soon as they qualify.
