Air Transport Training College (ATTC), recently acquired by Vaayu Group, is planning to launch new courses and training programs that are focused on aviation skills training and re-training. The company plans to invest in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence in aviation and in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) space.
ATTC will leverage Vaayu Group’s international operations in the United States and Middle East and apply best practices to refresh its offerings in Singapore. Programmes such as European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certified courses, Aircraft Spray Painting, and Sheetmetal Structural Repair are in the pipeline to enable students to seek work in international markets.
ATTC is also working with partners to offer experienced Singaporean workers placement in the Middle East and internationally after completing their re-training programs. Specific training programmes in Artificial Intelligence, Robotic Process Automation, Blockchain and Cloud Technologies are already in the works. Drone pilot training programs are planned for the immediate future.
“The next few years are crucial for any aviation institution globally. With our operations across the world and ATTC’s solid foundation in education, we believe that ATTC will be well-positioned to achieve global benchmarks in aviation training,”said Emad AlMonayea, Chairman & President, Vaayu Group.
“As a SAR-147 Maintenance Training Organization, we continue to offer fundamental programs that will equip students with hand skills and basic knowledge to become aircraft technicians,” said Colin Koh, General Manager, ATTC. “On top of that, new courses offered such as Lean Management and Project Management for Aerospace will focus on soft skills and knowledge that are much valued in the aerospace industry.”
“Our thought leadership and global ambitions will stand our students in good stead, especially in the new economy. With the paradigm shift in an already volatile environment, we are confident that the rejuvenation of programs will be just what our students need, especially in the long term,” said Vijay Arumbakkam, Chief Executive Officer at Vaayu Group and ATTC.
