HAECO Xiamen, a member of the HAECO (Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited) Group, announces the signing of a collaboration agreement with Xiamen City University (XMCU), to focus on the development of talent for the aircraft maintenance sector.
The agreement formalises co-operation between the two organisations in developing talented individuals for the aircraft maintenance industry.
Students who enrol in the joint XMCU-HAECO Xiamen programme will receive basic skills training in aircraft maintenance at the HAECO Xiamen Technical Training Centre over the course of their three-year academic studies at XMCU.
This will give them exposure to the aircraft maintenance industry and, upon graduation, students will receive higher diplomas from XMCU and training certificates from HAECO Xiamen.
The integrated programme will fast-track the process of developing high-quality aircraft maintenance mechanics by six months. The partners will continue to refine the programme’s curriculum, assessment criteria and develop student recruitment plans, the two said.
Summit Chan, CEO of HAECO Xiamen, says: “It is a key mission to nurture sufficient high-quality technical talents to cater for our business growth and to meet the demands of the growing aviation industry.
“HAECO Xiamen has over two decades of experience in technical training to develop our homegrown workforce as well as for the industry in China, having delivered some 250,000 student-courses since its inception. We look forward to broadening and deepening our collaboration with XMCU in the future.”
