2020 - Program

The Republic of Korea has launched the Training Program in order to contribute to the development and safety of the world’s aviation industry with the start of the Radar Approach Control programme since 2001. The Republic of Korea and ICAO established the Training Porgramme in 2006, which is sponsored by the Government of the Republic of Korea and administered by the ICAO Technical Cooperation Bureau and conducted by the KCATC and IAAA. Since 2001, 1,992 fellowships from 125 countries have been awarded under the programme (Including the number of fellowships and countries to participate in on-site training in African region and Latin American region).

In September 2016, the Government of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and ICAO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to continue the Training Programme with plans to train the aviation personnel from ICAO Member States over a 3-year period from 2017 to 2019. In accordance with this MOU, the ROK will invite 237 trainees from developing countries in 2018 to participate in below courses with the aim of promoting balanced development of international civil aviation.
