Training That Works For Government and Industry

By 2030, ICAO projects that global air transport will double its current capacity and the required aviation manpower projections are staggering. It is also recognised by the global aviation community that there will be an expected shortage of skilled aviation professional in years ahead. The success of the aviation industry is driven by its skilled workforce and maintaining a qualified and competent aviation workforce is critical to safe aviation management and operations. Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is tasked by the Singapore Government to grow a safe and vibrant air hub. This presentation will share on how CAAS, and Singapore Aviation Academy (the training arm of CAAS), provides training that supports the national objective of growing the aviation industry in Singapore.
