The History of Air Transport Training College
Air Transport Training College (ATTC) was established in 1999 as the Professional Development Centre of the Singapore Institute of Aerospace Engineers (SIAE). The college is registered with both the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) of Singapore and the Committee for Private Education (CPE) with the registration number 199901790H.
Within the Singapore Airworthiness Requirement (SAR) framework, regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), ATTC is a SAR Part 147 Approved Maintenance Training Organisation (CAAS Approval No: MTO/002). This means ATTC is approved to offer training programmes that meet SAR-66 basic knowledge and initial skills requirements in Aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul MRO activities. ATTC has also obtained the Republic of Maldives MCAR-147 approval to provide Part-66 basic knowledge and aviation skills training including the conduct of MCAR-66 basic knowledge examinations.
ATTC is concurrently a SkillsFuture Singapore Approved Training Organisation (ATO), having been awarded ATO No.00161 on 2 August 2007. On 1 September 2007, ATTC was appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore as a CET (Continuing Education & Training) Centre for the Aerospace industry.
ATTC is also registered as a Private Education Institution (PEI) with the Committee for Private Education (CPE) under the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) with the registration number 199901790H. This registration is valid from 6 August 2014 to 5 August 2018. ATTC has been awarded the 4-year EduTrust Certification (certificate no: EDU-2-2031) by Committee for Private Education (CPE) valid from 28 December 2015 to 27 December 2019. In March 2009, ATTC is bestowed with the Frost & Sullivan’s Asia Pacific Aerospace & Defense 2009 Aerospace Technical Training Institution of the Year Award.
Since 26 November 2012, ATTC operates from our new training complex (Seletar Aerospace Training Complex) at Seletar Aerospace Park. Apart from a fully operational hangar, with access to the runway at the Seletar Airport, and workshops offering skills-based training in aircraft related mechanical, avionics, electrical, engine systems and advanced composite repair techniques, the training complex also houses a Cessna 172 Skyhawk and a fully operational Learjet 25B to enhance the maintenance experience offered at the hangar. Seletar Aerospace Training Complex was officially opened by then Acting Manpower Minister, Mr. Tan Chuan-Jin on 22 May 2013.
In 24 July 2013, ATTC entered into a Training Agreement with Turbomeca Asia Pacific whereby ATTC will form part of Turbomeca’s international training network for the delivery of Turbomeca Level 1 and Level 2 maintenance courses. Such engine type training offered by ATTC’s instructors, under authorisation and qualification by Turbomeca, allow both the local and regional workforce to increase their skills and employability for the support of helicopter operations.
In 17 October 2013, ATTC also entered into an MOU with Jet Aviation Singapore, a General Dynamics company, for the launch of a joint “ATTC – Jet Aviation Licensed Aircraft Engineer Training Program for Business Aviation”. This joint program offers quality training opportunities for our workforce in an effort to develop a competitive pool of local Licensed Aircraft Engineers and related professionals for Business Aviation at Seletar Aerospace Park and beyond.
We have a new Course which is Executive Introduction to MRO. The course is designed to give participants an overview of MRO operation and the principle of maintenance to ensure effective use of the key asset of air transport – the aircraft. The lecturer will share his experience in development of processes and systems used in MRO operation over each generation of commercial aircraft. The challenge of decision making in an environment of conflicting requirements of economics, safety and reliability will be discussed.
Life in Air Transport Training College
For Local students, The College’s mission has always been to provide quality and professional training to prepare our students for success in the aviation industry. In addition to achieving the above mission, the College is also concerned with helping the students put their knowledge and skills into meaningful use in the aviation industry upon completing their course. Hence, the job placement service was initiated.
As majority of the part-time students are already workers or professionals in the aviation industry, job placement effort is geared towards the full-time students who are mainly new to the aviation industry. However, the job placement service is not restricted to full-time students only. Part-time students may also approach the College if they require aviation job placement assistance.
Air Transport Training College is a CAAS approved Part 147 training organisation that delivers training for aircraft Technicians, Engineers and Licensed Aircraft.
