The first Brookfield-Croatia Airlines course for B1 and B2 engineers has commenced in Zagreb and the students have arrived from all over the world to participate. The course is arranged in co-operation with the University of Velika Gorica and enables students from a variety of backgrounds to gain an EASA licence with type rating on Airbus 320 and two years on-the job training. On completion of the two year course, the students can take more exams to gain a recognised Bachelor of Engineering qualification from the University.
The launch of the programme has been received enthusiastically in Croatia and on the second day, a press conference was held at which representatives of the airline, university, Brookfield and students all had their say. Todd Skaggs, V.P. Strategic Projects for Brookfield, interviewed on Croatian TV said: “This course offers the perfect opportunity for candidates from any technical background to establish themselves in the industry. It’s the perfect combination of practical and academic learning with genuine work experience which provides the participants with just what they need in the present job marketplace. We are very proud of the programme and of our association with Croatia Airlines and the University.”
Management from Croatia Airlines and Brookfield welcome some of the students
Students can be accepted on the course from 18 years old, with no upper limit. All need to demonstrate an aptitude for technical subjects, either through previous work experience or education. A technical/mechanical/electrical background is an ideal starting point.
Applications are already being accepted for the 2016 course which will commence in late September.
