Applications are invited for Singapore – ICAO Developing Countries Training Programme for 2017/2018 academic year which is sponsored by the Singapore Government and administered by the ICAO Technical Cooperation Bureau for specialised training programmes conducted by the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA).
ICAO firmly believes that the safe and efficient operation of air transport systems is totally dependent on the skills and knowledge of the national personnel who operate and maintain these systems. ICAO, with UNDP support, has assisted over 50 developing States in establishing national civil aviation training centres. Through its Technical Cooperation Programme, ICAO has been active in awarding fellowship training in the various fields of civil aviation. In the past 15 years, around 15,000 fellowships were awarded to almost every developing State.
