Congratulating Mr. Ozoalor and Mr. Jolayemi on their results, Head of Global Partnerships and Innovation at IATA Training said, Mr. Ivica Kovacic said:
“On behalf of IATA Training, I congratulate you on successfully completing the Foundation in Travel and Tourism with Amadeus course and acknowledge you as the student with the best performance in your country for the January 2022 exam session. As our Best Performer, feel free to use this recognition as a reference in any future job application. IATA Training will gladly act as a referrer in your career journey.”
Academy Director at Lagos Aviation Academy and Chairman Association of Approved Aviation Training Organisations in Nigeria, Mr. Bankole Bernard, while delivering a speech at the award ceremony held at the academy, spoke on the need to properly enlighten the general public on how to identify a standard aviation training school.
“In Nigeria today, we have too many mushroom training schools scattered all over the place. Sadly, a lot of people cannot differentiate between the standard schools and the mushroom schools. This is one area the regulators should also pay attention to in order for us to have seasoned professionals joining the next generation industry players.”
