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.
