Singapore – ICAO Developing Countries Training Programme 2019/2020

0

Singapore and ICAO jointly established a Developing Countries Training Programme (DCTP) in 2001 which is sponsored by the Singapore Government and administered by the ICAO Technical Cooperation Bureau for specialised training programmes conducted by the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA). The programme has been awarding fellowships for training at SAA. It was further extended and expanded in 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. In 2013, a new Scholarship for Diploma in Civil Aviation Management was introduced. In response to overwhelming and continued demand, the DCTP will be extended for another three years from 2019 to 2022 and expanded to provide 330 Fellowships and 10 Scholarships. A total of 110 Fellowships and 10 Scholarships will be available in 2019/2020 and we welcome applications from government officials of developing ICAO Member States.

Terms of Fellowships and Application Procedures

The Government of Singapore will bear the training fees, daily allowance of sixty Singapore Dollars (S$60) and hotel accommodation for participants accepted for the programmes. Complimentary breakfast will be provided at the hotel and lunch at SAA during training days. Travel arrangements are to be made and costs borne by the nominating Governments.

Hotel accommodation will be provided for the training duration, i.e. one day before course commencement (after 2 pm) and one day after the course (till 12 noon).
