BAS training centre accepts applications

Mr. Munther Al-Shamasneh, Manager of BAS Aircraft Engineering Training Centre (BAETC) has announced the start of accepting applications for 2017/2018 entry.

This center, part of Bahrain Airport Services (BAS), provides a four-year highly specialized program in aircraft maintenance engineering, in which students acquire both theoretical and practical experience.

He added the center is open daily for those who want to register, with easy access to study theoretical and practical training methods in BAETC, and to acquire the EASA Part 66 license, which is the most recognized license in aviation maintenance in the world.

Al-Shamasneh said that students wishing to study must be older than 16 and have to pass the entrance exams and interviews. He stressed that a high school certificate is not a prerequisite, as only applied science is required to learn how to maintain aircrafts.

In order to make it easier for students and parents, BAS company has announced the possibility of paying the related fees on a monthly basis over four years.  BAS strategy is belief in the importance of supporting education and training in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and it is eager to help and encourage Bahrainis’ to be competitive in the labour market. BAETC also welcomes expats to join, BAETC and can provide students with sponsorship in Bahrain. BAETC currently includes students from India, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Philippine, Oman, KSA, and Moldavia.

BAS Aircraft Engineering Training Centre is the second center in the world with a license to qualify on EASA Part 66 license program for aviation engineering. The importance of this license is due to changes in the market requirements in recent years, as airlines and maintenance repair organizations (MROs) require licensed engineers only, and that explains why academic degrees holders rarely find a job in this field.

“The European license (EASA Part 66) is the most sought after around the world. BAETC graduates receive the license directly from the British government, UKCAA (United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority), the parent of this license, and that is mainly the reason why it is globally recognized,” he said.

In relation to the advantages of studying in BAETC, Mr. Shamasneh stated that BAS includes a line maintenance facility which supports a considerable number of major airlines’ daily flights which assists students in obtaining the required practical experience in the third and fourth years of the EASA training program. In addition, the two years practical experience is offered with other companies in this field, where BAS relations play an important role.

He pointed out that he believes in the future of the aviation engineering sector in Bahrain and the region will thrive, stressing that Bahrain Airport Services Company (BAS) is a key supporter in this field. He added that there are several studies indicating growth of demand for aviation engineers, the strategic location of the Kingdom of Bahrain in the region, and expansion of the new Bahrain International Airport accommodating more airlines will definitely play a major role.

Established in 1977, Bahrain Airport Services Company (BAS) has a 40 year long track record of continuous service and has been the sole operator of ground services at Bahrain International Airport since it was established as the first international airport in the Arabian Gulf region. It is also a trusted name in the world of services as a company certified by the Air Transport Safety Audit Program of the International Air Transport Association. BAS offers a number of commercial activities including: aircraft and passenger handling services, catering services, aircraft engineering services, Bas Engineering Training Centre (KFH), as well as owning and managing airport lounges.
