It is the vehicle that will ensure the development of our capabilities, skills and calibre of our teams, to deliver to the needs of our new gateway, the Midfield Terminal. Through its drive to continuously enhance its accreditation and course offering, we ensure that all staff who work in the new airport are passionate, engaged but above all well trained to deliver on the expectations of our travellers, our stakeholders from the aviation community, and Abu Dhabi as a whole.”
Zamzam Al Hammadi, General Manager GCAS, said: “The accreditation of GCAS by NCEMA is in line with our vision and mission to become the world’s leading center for airport and aviation training through the provision of a comprehensive portfolio of courses and the promotion of an innovative culture of learning and excellence. The accreditation also further strengthens our position as the region’s leading aviation training organization and highlights Abu Dhabi Airports’ ongoing contribution to raising aviation standards around the world.”
