Gulf Aviation Academy (GAA) and Bahrain Polytechnic (BP) have announced signing a comprehensive memorandum of understanding as a basis to start discussing further collaboration between the two parties on the development and delivery of various transport based training and education courses in Bahrain.
This agreement is the first of its kind in Bahrain, and will allow the Academy and BP to work together on combining and centralizing aviation and maritime training under one roof. As an authorized training center, GAA will be providing IATA courses to the Polytechnic’s Logistics Program. GAA in turn will benefit from the education partnership that Bahrain Polytechnic has developed with the Chartered Institute of Logistics Transport (CILT) with the potential for the future development of a full CILT center based at GAA.
On this occasion, Capt. Dhaffer Al Abbasi, Acting Chief Executive Officer, GAA stated: "This kind of venture between our two entities has many advantages that will serve the Kingdom of Bahrain in positioning itself as the training logistics hub of the region. Source: GAA press release. (IY)
