Magnetic MRO has launched a new workforce training programme which it hopes will alleviate labour shortages in the aircraft maintenance sector.
In the coming years, between 60 and 100 new aircraft engineers are expected to enrol in the ‘Magnetic Academy’ workplace-based training programme.
Magnetic MRO states the programme is unique in that it offers an opportunity to those with no previous aviation education or experience, and it open for professionals already in the company to gain additional training opportunities.
The programme combines Magnetic MRO’s practical experience with the academic knowledge of the Riga Transport and Telecommunications Institute (TSI Riga).
Risto Mäeots, chief executive at Magnetic Group, said: “Our aim is to fill a critical gap in the skilled workforce that is essential for Magnetic MRO’s development and growth.”
Ene Krinpus, HR manager at Magnetic Group, said: “Magnetic Academy provides an opportunity for those who want to pursue a career in aviation but lack the necessary background or education. We believe it will open the door to aviation for many talented people.”
Magnetic MRO is part of Magnetic Group offering a wide range of services for aircraft and engines, asset trading and technical training. The company currently employs approximately 450 people in Tallinn, Estonia.
