ICAO Fellowship Programme
ICAO firmly believes that the safe and efficient operation of air transport systems is totally dependent on the skills and knowledge of the national personnel who operate and maintain these systems. ICAO, with UNDP support, has assisted over 50 developing States in establishing national civil aviation training centres. Through its Technical Cooperation Programme, ICAO has been active in awarding fellowship training in the various fields of civil aviation. In the past 15 years, around 15,000 fellowships were awarded to almost every developing State.
The Ministry of Transportation, Republic of Indonesia and ICAO, signed a Management Service Agreement (MSA) in January 2008. The scope of the cooperation includes the agreement to jointly establish a Fellowship Training Programme for Developing Countries with plans to train aviation personnels from ICAO Member States. The objective of this programme is to provide opportunities to individuals from developing countries to gain knowledge to implement ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices and to promote the safety and development of international civil aviation.
