Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) and Singapore’s Temasek Polytechnic (TP) have signed a five-year extension of their partnership agreement in providing aircraft technical training.
The agreement was first established in 2007. Close to 4,000 students from TP’s Diploma in Aerospace Engineering and Diploma in Aerospace Electronics have benefitted from the partnership in that time, as they are given the opportunity to undergo practical-oriented aerospace diploma programmes.
LTT’s technical training concepts and quality standards have been incorporated as part of TP’s aerospace diploma course structure. Under the new five-year agreement, LTT and TP will jointly develop and offer industry relevant aircraft technical training courses for both local and overseas participants.
“This contract extension is a success for both companies in the booming but highly competitive aviation training segment in Asia,” said Lufthansa Technical Training’s managing director Marc Wilken. “We are therefore very proud that LTT has been chosen as a partner by Temasek Polytechnic.”
Temasek Polytechnic’s principal and CEO Peter Lam commented: “We are very pleased with the strong partnership built between LTT and TP over the last 15 years in providing quality, industry-relevant training for new entrants and professionals in the aerospace industry. TP looks forward to continue working closely with LTT to offer more innovative training courses to support the recovery and future growth of Singapore’s aerospace industry.”
