Practical Training in the Philippines

Training is about to get a bit more hands-on for 1,500 Philippine students. Lufthansa Technical Training Philippines, a subsidiary of Lufthansa Technical Training, is partnering with Jocson College and Feati University in the Philippines to train aircraft mechanics, electronics specialists and engineers over the next five years.

Under the deal, LTTP will provide the institutions with documents for theoretical training, along with tools and materials for practical training. LTTP will also work with the schools to develop new training methods, including the possibility of Web-based training.

The students will pass through a five-year program that combines two years of theoretical training with three years on the job. At the end, students will take examinations, administered by LTTP, to qualify for a European Aviation Safety Agency license to perform Category A maintenance work.

“With this special additional qualification students will add significant extra value to their ‘mechanical and engineering diploma,’” says Jochen Harms, general manager at Lufthansa Technical Training Philippines. “The arrangement offers participants a huge potential for synergy effects such as work placements and project work.”

It sounds like it’s not a bad deal for the institutions, the students and LTTP, which gets access to a new crop of trained professionals.
