The November 2014 Operations Officer Course was once again a huge success, with 24 students from 13 aircraft operators and one private individual completing the 5 day course.
The course which is a great introduction to working in Operations was delivered with lecturers from Titan Airways, West Atlantic, Cello, Thomson, easyJet, Thomas Cook, Air Tanker, BA Cityflyer, Airport Coordination and the Met Office.
This particular course was the first held at the Hitchin Priory Hotel, which proved to be a good location. We were also pleased to welcome students for the first time from 2Excel Aviation, Aurigny Air Services, Eastern Airways and Air Charter Scotland.
The next courses are due to be held in March and November 2015 – see https://ukoma.co.uk/ukoma-sets-further-training-course-dates/.
This week saw UKOMA hold its latest Operations Officer training course, and for the first time at the Harpenden House Hotel near London Luton Airport. The week long course has been created by the Association and tailored to the unique needs of the industry. With the assistance of lecturers from 9 organisations, 22 students enjoyed both theory and practical tuition to acquire the desirable skills to work in a busy Airline Operations department, from crew scheduling to manual flight planning. The highly accredited course attracted students from 13 UK based airlines, many being funded by their employer as an invaluable training asset to the Company and employee progression. Students from Titan, West Atlantic, Jet2.com, easyJet, BA Ciryflyer, BAe, Thomson, London Executive, Acropolis Aviation, Links Air, Cello, Met Office and ACL all made the grade and left with another qualification under their belts.
