The aviation industry is undergoing transformation through paradigm changes in government policies,
exponential growth rate of the industry, especially in this part of the world, and new technologies that are
emerging in extreme rapidity. India is innovating satellite- based augmentation systems(GAGAN), thus
transforming the way aircraft navigate. Customer expectations have reached a new high and the service quality
at airports is a key to remaining competitive in business. Airport Infrastructural changes are inevitable with
growing market demand.The paradigm is constantly changing and the challenges thereof can be handled only
by employees with matching knowledge, skills and correct attitude (KSAs).
Developing qualified, competent and highly-trained human resource to support a safe, secure and sustainable
air transportation system is a fundamental tenet of ICAO TRAINAIR PLUS program. The Government of India
has also an aggressive plan to promote the aviation sector. New airports are being constructed, old airports are
being rejuvenated and ghost airports are being revived. Dream of common man to fly has taken off with
government's visionary initiative of UDAN. India is getting delivery of one new aircraft for scheduled operations
every week.So, new avenues of employment are also increasing manifold.
We are in consonance with ICAO objectives of developing qualified and competent human resource across skill
pyramid of all job roles to respond appropriately to emerging challenges and this has been cornerstone of our
training policy. Training and skill development has been institutionalized within policy framework with mission
mantras of Training for all and At least thirty hours of training every year. As a learning organization, we
profess learning by doing.Our training philosophy is Continual, across the organization covering every single
employee, across functional areas in order to develop core competencies and allied areas of technology and
management for effective performances of role plays.
Indian Aviation Academy (IAA), Civil Aviation Training College (CATC) and Fire Training Centre (FTC) are
members of ICAO TRAIN AIR PLUS programme under which their Course Development Units (CDU) develop
competency-based, performance-oriented Standard Training Packages (STPs) and share with member states
for imparting competency- based training programs.
Three-stage training program drives our training plan:
? Induction Training:for perfect take-off and correct heading for orientation with organization.
? Discipline-specific Training:for cruising at optimum flight path towards destination of organization goal.
? Leadership Development Training:for soaring high in aviation sky as leaders of organization.
