Posted 28 May 2016 · Add Comment

The International College of Engineering & Management (ICEM) has signed a memorandum of understanding with CAA International (CAAi), the state-to-state advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA) for new training in Oman

Signed by Affan Khalfan Al Akhzami, ICEM Managing Director and CEO, Maria Rueda, CAAi Managing Director and witnessed by Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO of Oman Air, the MoU supports the extension of ICEM's CAAi accredited airport rescue and fire fighting training, into new geographic locations.
Under the existing agreement, ICEM is an accredited CAAi training provider and authorised by the UK CAA to provide training in Oman on the structured learning programme for rescue fire fighting personnel in accordance with UK CAA CAP 699 - Standards for the Competence of Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (RFFS) Personnel.
Under the MoU, CAAi has also offered to provide training consultancy services in Oman, through a blend of theoretical and on-the-job training programmes.
Since gaining full CAAi accreditation in 2013, ICEM has trained hundreds of airport fire fighting professionals to UK CAA CAP 699 standards.
After the signing ceremony, Akhzami said, "I believe that the combination of ICEM's reputation for training and education coupled with CAAi's international brand will form a formidable partnership, not only in Oman but also across the region. We at ICEM are proud to work with internationally recognised bodies who can strengthen Oman's organisational capability and help to develop and nurture local Omani human capital. I look forward to a long, strong and prosperous relationship".
