CIVIL AVIATION TRAINING CENTER (CATC) RE- CERTIFIED AS TRAINAIR PLUS ASSOCIATE MEMBER
Civil Aviation Training Center (CATC) has been re-certified as the TrainAir Plus Associate Member in August 2017. The center is under Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority.
This is the second time for CATC to be granted the Associate membership by the TrainAir Plus of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The award of TrainAir Plus associate membership follows an extensive ICAO assessment of the civil aviation training center, including its training manuals, training facilities and instructors.
Speaking to a brief ceremony on the award, the DGTCAA, Hamza S. Johari, congratulated the training center team for a job well done, encouraging them to work hard towards full TrainAir Plus Membership.
"This is an international training center, we admit students from different countries, we should aspire to improve the learning environment" said Johari.
The TRAINAIR PLUS programme goal is to improve the safety and efficiency of air transport through the establishment, maintenance and monitoring of high standards of training and competency of aviation personnel on a world-wide basis and in a cost-effective manner.
To achieve this goal, the TRAINAIR Plus programme uses two tools: a methodology to develop standardized courses in civil aviation disciplines and a sharing system of Standardized Training Packages (STPs).
Among others, members of the TRAINAIR PLUS Programme have access to any STPs prepared by other members. They can import and adapt STPs to meet local conditions. They will also have access to non-STP materials made available by Corporate Members.
Members can also progressively upgrade their curriculum by applying the TRAINAIR PLUS course development methodology and accessing a pool of validated STPs.
