Blue Ocean Academy has received the prestigious title of ‘2020 Regional Top Performing ATC (Accredited Training Centre)’ from International Air Transport Association (IATA) for its outstanding performance in delivering IATA training programs in Africa and the Middle East in 2019. In the last 3 examinations conducted by IATA, four students of Blue Ocean Academy topped the results of the UAE Region. 13 students of Blue Ocean also passed the examinations with distinction.
IATA-Blue Ocean alliance has contributed a large number of trained professionals to the aviation industry and the IATA students at Blue Ocean Academy have always demonstrated excellent academic performance.
Blue Ocean always believes in the power of education even during the times of uncertainty. “It is true schools were shut down, universities were closed but education will never stop. It is like healthcare, it will never halt whatever the circumstances.” Blue Ocean follows this insightful message of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and continues to do its best in imparting knowledge to its students.
“Being an accredited training centre of IATA in the Middle East, Blue Ocean has been able to raise the bar in aviation training with matchless quality and commitment. Our IATA certified trainers have succeeded in enabling the students to come out of the examinations with flying colours. This esteemed title is a great recognition of our efforts and a motivation to continue our endeavours even in these tough times,” remarked Dr Sathya Menon, Executive Director at Blue Ocean Academy.
Professional training and certification certainly take professionals one step closer to the career goals. Training in IATA helps airlines to operate safely, securely, efficiently, and economically under clearly defined rules.
“This recognition is a great honour and stands testimony to our dedication in contributing towards the sustainability of the aviation sector. The professionals trained from Blue Ocean Academy are equipped with knowledge of the best practices, international standards and safety measures thereby upholding the mission of IATA ‘to represent, lead and serve the airline industry,’” remarked Abdul Azeez, Managing Director at Blue Ocean Academy.
