Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has held crucial deliberations with top officials of the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Zaria, leading to the review of existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organizations on training of personnel in the Operations Department of the agency.
The MOU which was drafted at the NAMA headquarters in Lagos covered areas such as course duration, deployment of NAMA staff to NCAT, review of school fees, accommodation facilities and improved quality of training to reflect practical field experience. Speaking at the event, the Director of Operations, Mr Uzoma-fyneboy, who represented the Managing Director, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam, commended NCAT for providing the much needed high level manpower to drive aviation in Nigeria over the years. He also expressed confidence that the updated MOU would proffer ways of charting a new course for the training schedules and also clear other grey areas that were hitherto associated with their training relationship. Also in his remarks the leader of NCAT delegation and Deputy Rector of NCAT, Mr Joseph Achimugu canvassed for “a better work synergy between NAMA and NCAT as this would ultimately raise the bar of aviation safety in the country.”
