The ICAO 5th Global Aviation Training and TrainAir Plus Symposium concluded its activities in Doha recently with “huge success”, the organisers said.

The three-day event was attended by more than 900 participants from member states of ICAO.

The symposium provided a forum where ICAO member states and training organisations came together to forge new partnership opportunities in aviation training, and at the same time increase their awareness of key near- and long-term capacity-building priorities for global air transport.

During the event, attendees participated in seven panel sessions, two workshops and 28 speeches with 33 global experts discussing a variety of topics related to building aviation training intelligence. The symposium also facilitated committee meetings on the sidelines for the TrainAir Plus Student Committee and Association of African Aviation Training Organisations.

The symposium also included networking sessions dedicated to fostering collaboration between member organisations in order to find training partners that suit their needs.

Sheikh Jabor bin Hamad M al-Thani, director-general of Qatar Aeronautical College (QAC), said: “We are proud and delighted to have hosted the global civil aviation community in Doha, and are looking forward to contributing to the growth and development of the aviation industry through educating and qualifying the next generation of aviation professionals.”

During the symposium, QAC signed a partnership agreement with Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC) to offer Advanced Masters in Aviation Safety Management to students and aviation professionals in Qatar. The Advanced Masters programme is the “only one of its kind” that has ICAO accreditation and will be taught for the first time in the world at Qatar Aeronautical College, according to a press statement.

Sheikh Jabor concluded: “We will continue to play an active role in supporting ICAO and the global aviation community as Qatar further develops its position as a leading aviation industry hub in the region.”
