This move will catapult ATTC into the future with the launch of new courses and training programs that are focused on skills training and re-training. This includes investing in courses 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 US and Middle East and apply best practices to refresh its offerings in Singapore. With the latest implications of Covid-19 for the industry, the 21-year-old education institution views the situation as an opportunity to revitalize aviation training. The acquisition furthers ATTC’s commitment to providing lifelong learning and training that results in positive employment outcomes for students.
Crucial years for the aviation industry
Emad AlMonayea, Chairman and President at Vaayu Group, said: “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. We hope that our insights and experience in the marketplace will help students further their journey in the aviation industry, individually and as a whole.”
Colin Koh, General Manager at ATTC, added: “As a Maintenance Training Organisation, we continue to offer fundamental programs that will equip students with skills and basic knowledge to become aircraft technicians. 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.”
New programs are in the pipeline
Programs such as European Union Aviation Safety Agency 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 several partners to offer experienced Singaporean workers placement in the Middle East and internationally after completing their re-training programs.
ATTC also plans to venture into the nascent and highly promising UAV space and hopes to blaze a trail in the area of UAV and its applications in Singapore and Asia.
