Lagos Aviation Academy speaks on 15-year plan to train new breed professionals

  • announces plan to commence online courses
LAGOS Aviation Academy (LAA), has announced a 15-year plan aimed at training the incoming workforce to ensure continuity and improvement of professionalism in the Nigerian Aviation industry.

This is just as plans are set to make study easier for its students who might not be physically available to take the courses as the academy is introducing self-study courses (online) before midyear 2020.

General Manager, Chinasa Mbene disclosed that these recently noted that there is a need to prepare the upcoming generation to take over from the aging experts in the next ten to fifteen years.

Chinasa mentioned that the academy would focus on the younger generation stating:

“In the next 10 to 15 years, we are going to see many skilled professionals in the aviation industry age and retire from their jobs. To ensure the transfer of knowledge to the next generation and to also ensure that there is continuity, we are actively focused on training the next generation. In line with this vision, we recently awarded scholarships to two students who wanted to pursue a career in the aviation industry,” Chinasa says.

“This year, we would be focusing on enlightening the younger generation on the numerous career paths in the industry. Lagos Aviation Academy looks forward to demystifying the general ideology that the only jobs in the industry are the pilots and cabin crew officers,” she adds.

General Manager of travel and tourism school on its plan to introduce courses online said, “With a mission to impart relevant knowledge through innovative training solutions designed to progressively build leaders and inspire excellence, Lagos Aviation Academy is set to introduce online courses. To drive this, we are in partnerships with recognized aviation bodies, using relevant technology. We have also developed a curriculum to make the learning process seamless for our students.”

Meanwhile, the LAA states that it currently offers a 39% discount on the Basic Ticketing and Reservation course to National Youth Service Corp members. The Academy Director, who is also the President of the National Association of Nigerian Travel Agencies (NANTA) says, the essence of this is to engage the NYSC members during and after their service.

“Having realized that at the end of their service year most Corp Members still have to seat at home for a while before they get employed somewhere, we decided to create this opportunity to keep Corp members engaged.”

Lagos Aviation Academy is in partnerships with top Travel Management Companies (TMC’s) and Airlines in Nigeria and has facilitated the employment of some of its best students in these companies. This is one of the many contributions the school has made towards improving the downstream sector in the Nigerian aviation industry.
