Arab News - - SAUDI ARABIA -

The Tech­ni­cal and Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (TVTC) and the Min­istry of Na­tional Guard on Sun­day signed a train­ing agree­ment to ben­e­fit from the air­craft main­te­nance pro­grams of­fered at the In­ter­na­tional Avi­a­tion Tech­ni­cal Col­lege, one of TVTC’s col­leges, and to pro­vide the Na­tional Guard with qual­i­fied ex­perts, the Saudi Press Agency re­ported.

The agree­ment was co-signed by TVTC Gov. Ahmed bin Fa­had AlFa­haid and Mil­i­tary Chief Lieut. Gen. Mo­ham­mad Al-Nahid.

Un­der the agree­ment, TVTC will pro­vide train­ing to stu­dents from the Min­istry of Na­tional Guard at the In­ter­na­tional Avi­a­tion Tech­ni­cal Col­lege. This in­cludes train­ing 50 stu­dents in the ba­sic air­craft main­te­nance course, B1, and 50 in the ba­sic air­craft main­te­nance course, B2 Avion­ics.

TVTC will also pro­vide in­cen­tive bonuses to trainees en­rolled in the col­lege.

For its part, the Min­istry of Na­tional Guard will at­tract at least 100 stu­dents per year and com­plete their ad­mis­sions as mil­i­tary stu­dents ac­cord­ing to the reg­u­la­tions ap­proved by the min­istry and the stan­dards adopted by the in­ter­na­tional op­er­a­tor.

The In­ter­na­tional Avi­a­tion Tech­ni­cal Col­lege (IATC) in Riyadh was founded by TVTC. TVTC op­er­ates it in part­ner­ship with the Avi­a­tion Aus­tralia Col­lege.

IATC is part of an in­ter­na­tional train­ing pack­age launched by TVTC in part­ner­ship with in­ter­na­tional tech­ni­cal col­leges to pro­vide spe­cial­ized world-class train­ing pro­grams.

The col­lege of­fers two main pro­grams: The Gen­eral Au­thor­ity of Civil Avi­a­tion Pro­gram for grad­u­ates seek­ing to work as avi­a­tion main­te­nance en­gi­neers and the Euro­pean Avi­a­tion Safety Agency Cur­ricu­lum in Me­chan­i­cal and Avion­ics.

It also of­fers train­ing in the field of air­craft main­te­nance, which pro­vides stu­dents with hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence that helps them un­der­stand the com­plex­i­ties of avion­ics and of main­tain­ing and ex­plor­ing air­craft sys­tems and engines.

The col­lege can train up to 2,500 stu­dents. Af­ter grad­u­a­tion, th­ese stu­dents ob­tain a diploma and a li­cense to prac­tice air­craft main­te­nance.

TVTC had signed sev­eral agree­ments with gov­ern­ment agen­cies to co­op­er­ate in train­ing and tech­ni­cal fields and to ex­change ex­pe­ri­ences.

It has also signed agree­ments in sev­eral fields, in­clud­ing in­for­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies, in ad­di­tion to agree­ments that strengthen its part­ner­ship with the pri­vate sec­tor.
